After missing Week 6 of the 2019 season with a quad injury, Todd Gurley had the Los Angeles Rams pretty nervous about Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons. But the latest injury update shows he could be back this weekend.
On Friday the Rams released their full injury report and indicated that Gurley was a full practice participant. That bodes very well for him playing on Sunday.
Gurley was limited in in practice on Wednesday and Thursday.
While linebacker Clay Matthews was ruled out, newly acquired CB Jalen Ramsey was also a full participant.
The two-time All-Pro and former Offensive Player of the Year started each of the Rams' first five games. But the Rams were very conservative in his use, and he has averaged a career-low 12.8 carries per game.
To date, Gurley has rushed for 270 yards and five touchdowns. His 4.2 yards per carry are the second-lowest of his career though.
The Rams are 3-3 on the season and in third place in the NFC West. Their next few games should be a little bit easier as they take on the Falcons, Bengals and Steelers - who are a combined 3-15.
Will Gurley be the difference maker for Los Angeles this weekend?
