Rams RB Todd Gurley (quad) is officially inactive for today’s game against the 49ers. He has a “chance” to return for Week 7, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said this morning. Malcolm Brown is expected to serve as Los Angeles’ feature back today, with Darrell Henderson — and potentially John Kelly — spelling him.

Rams RB Todd Gurley (quad) is out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, a team source tells ESPN's Lindsay Thiry. The team has promoted RB John Kelly from the practice squad. Both Kelly and rookie Darrell Henderson could mix in for a handful of touches, but look for Malcolm Brown to handle the majority of the backfield work tomorrow.

Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) is INACTIVE for today’s game against the Cardinals. His warmup evidently didn’t go well enough to get the green light. RB Justin Davis (shoulder) is active and joins C.J. Anderson and John Kelly in the backfield. It’s a situation to try to avoid, but if you need 1 of them, Anderson is the best fantasy bet.

Rams RB Todd Gurley (knee) didn’t practice all week and will be a game-time decision on Sunday, HC Sean McVay said. McVay was optimistic about Gurley all week but seemed less so on Friday. The situation is complicated by the fact that Rams-Cardinals doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET. We’ll look for an update on Gurley’s status on Sunday morning. The Rams’ official website suggested on Friday that newly signed RB C.J. Anderson would lead the way in carries if Gurley can’t play. Rookie RB John Kelly would also be in the mix. RB Justin Davis (shoulder) is questionable.

The Rams are signing RB C.J. Anderson, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. It's Todd Gurley insurance. Gurley is tentatively expected to play against the Cardinals this weekend. But if he can't, we'd likely see a committee with Anderson, John Kelly and potentially Justin Davis, who suffered a shoulder injury last week.

Rams HC Sean McVay said Monday that RB Malcolm Brown "could miss some time" with a clavicle injury suffered in Sunday's win in Detroit. Brown has served as Los Angeles' #2 RB all season. His absence would leave rookie John Kelly and Justin Davis behind Todd Gurley on the depth chart. Kelly is the preferred handcuff.

Update: Brown will miss the rest of the regular season, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

The Rams selected RB John Kelly in the 6th round of the NFL Draft. It's obviously a poor landing spot for his fantasy outlook in both the short and long term. Todd Gurley is locked in as the L.A. workhorse and signed at least through 2019. We'll see what the Rams do beyond that. For now, Kelly -- an intriguing runner who should have put up bigger college numbers but got buried on the depth chart -- will make the most sense for Gurley owners in dynasty rookie drafts. He'll be an OK stash for others in the 4th round or later.
