Todd Gurley injury update: Rams RB (knee) game-time decision vs. Cardinals

Todd Gurley, officially listed as questionable with inflammation in his knee, will be a game-time decision when the Rams face the Cardinals in Week 16 on Sunday, coach Sean McVay told reporters.

“We’re not going to do anything that isn’t smart for Todd,” McVay said Friday (via NFL.com). “It’s a team effort. Trusting how he feels, what our doctors say and what is best for our football team.”

The 24-year-old running back will participate in a pregame workout Sunday to determine if he will play after missing practice all week. 

“We’ll see how he responds to some of the rehab that we’re doing over the next couple of days,” McVay said, per ESPN. “And really, when you’ve got that hour and a half to decide before the game [about] your inactives, it will probably go right up until then. But like we talk about all the time, we’ll have some contingency plans in place and we’re going to do what’s best for Todd.”

Gurley originally suffered the injury in the third quarter of Los Angeles’ 30-23 loss to the Eagles in Week 15, but he returned to the game after sitting out just one series. 

A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Gurley has tallied 1,251 yards and 17 scores on the ground in 2018. He has also added four receiving touchdowns.

The Rams (11-3) will face the host Cardinals (3-11) Sunday at 4:05 p.m. ET.
