Rams GM Les Snead said at the Combine that his team is considering scaling back RB Todd Gurley's workload due to concerns over his troublesome left knee. "There's an element of wear and tear and I think we have to determine in probably two stages: are we going to give him the amount of load that he's had in the past or are we going to lessen that load to let's say keep him fresher for the season and for the seasons beyond," Snead said. The Rams backfield, of course, devolved into a committee late last year with Gurley and C.J. Anderson. Anderson is now a free agent, so we'll see whether L.A. brings him back or adds another RB who can handle significant work. Gurley remains a clear-cut RB1 heading into 2019, but RBs Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott look like safer bets at the top of drafts right now.
Rams RB Todd Gurley (quad) told reporters after Thursday's practice that he's "doing better" but wouldn't commit to being ready for this weekend's game against the Falcons, according to ESPN's Lindsay Thiry. RB Malcolm Brown, meanwhile, missed practice again on Thursday. We'll get another update on this backfield on Friday afternoon.
Rams RB Todd Gurley (quad) will participate in individual drills at Wednesday's practice, HC Sean McVay said. That's an upgrade over last week, when Gurley didn't practice at all. He has a legitimate shot to return for Sunday's game against the Falcons. RB Malcolm Brown, meanwhile, is "day to day" with an ankle injury, per McVay. We'll get another update on both guys tomorrow.
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 (quad) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the 49ers after missing practice all week. His status beyond Week 6 is unclear. Gurley’s absence this weekend leaves Los Angeles’ backfield to Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson. We’re expecting Brown to handle most of the early-down and red-zone work, with Henderson operating in a change-of-pace role. Note that this isn’t a great matchup against a ‘Niners squad sitting 5th in Football Outsiders’ run defense rankings and 2nd in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.
