The Los Angeles Rams hope to have Todd Gurley back today as they deal with the first three-game losing streak of the Sean McVay period.
Gurley missed Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers due to a quad injury that kept him out of practice all week. The injury happened in the Rams’ Week 5 Thursday night tilt versus Seattle and rollovered the whole week.
The Rams hope the concern clears up after a week’s rest.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday on Good Morning Football that it’s a week-to-week circumstance with Gurley.
” He is not dismissed for this week. He does have a chance to go,” Rapoport said. “Not considered something long, long term.”
One problem for Gurley is that the thigh injury is on the very same leg as the knee concern that the running back handled dating back to last season, which is why stability is part of the concern that caused the Rams to hold him out Sunday.
His situation will be one to monitor as the week presses forward.
The Rams’ offense was lost a sea Sunday versus a San Francisco 49ers defense that overmatched McVay’s team. Maybe if Gurley had played, L.A. wouldn’t have been packed at the goal-line late in the 2nd quarter, and the tenor of the tilt is various. Maybe. Maybe not.
In any case, the Rams intend to get their top running back on the field in a get-right game versus an Atlanta Falcons defense that couldn’t stop a pillow battle between a couple of three-year-olds.
