Rams star Todd Gurley is “day-to-day” with knee inflammation, coach Sean McVay told reporters Monday.
The 24-year-old running back originally suffered the injury in the third quarter of Los Angeles’ 30-23 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. But, he returned to the game after missing one series.
Gurley rushed for 48 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries against Philadelphia. He also caught 10 passes for 76 yards.
“I returned, so I was fine,” Gurley said about the injury Sunday, via ESPN.
The Rams have already clinched a spot in the playoffs. McVay did not commit to Gurley playing in the team’s Week 16 road matchup with the lowly Cardinals.
“If he’s able to go, we want him to be able to go,” McVay said. “But if it’s something that whether you’re playing for the playoffs or whether you’re not, we’re always going to be smart with a player like Todd.”
Gurley, a two-time Pro Bowl player, has tallied 1,251 yards and 17 scores on the ground in 2018. He has also added four receiving touchdowns.
The Rams will enter their matchup in Arizona with an 11-3 record but on a two-game losing streak.
