Gurley was held out for a series in the third quarter of Sunday night's 30-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
While Gurley downplayed the situation, coach Sean McVay told reporters that he wants his star running back to play in the final two games for the Rams (11-3). Los Angeles, which has clinched the NFC West, faces the division-rival Arizona Cardinals (3-11) and San Francisco 49ers (4-10) to wrap up the regular season.
"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 rushed for 48 yards and two touchdowns and caught 10 passes for 76 yards in the setback against the Eagles.
The 24-year-old Gurley has rushed for 1,251 yards and has 59 receptions for 580 yards this season en route to recording a league-best 21 touchdowns (17 rushing, four receiving).
Gurley is coming off a monstrous season in 2017 in which he led Los Angeles to the NFC West title. He became the first Rams player to win the AP Offensive Player of the Year award since Marshall Faulk in 2001.
The former University of Georgia product led the NFL in touchdowns (19), points scored among non-kickers (114) and scrimmage yards (2,093) in addition to finishing second in rushing yards (1,305). He also topped the league's running backs in receiving yards with 788 and his average of 6.1 yards per touch was the best in the NFL.
