Running back Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams has not practiced all week because of a knee injury, but head coach Sean McVay said the decision on whether Gurley will play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals will be made that morning. Gurley is listed as questionable.
McVay said earlier this week that the Rams will not do anything to jeopardize Gurley's availability for the playoffs, which would seem to suggest that Gurley will have to show a lot in that pre-game workout in order to play against the Cardinals.
"We're not going to do anything that isn't smart for Todd," McVay said on Friday. "I thought he said it perfectly yesterday. It's a team effort -- trusting how he feels, what our doctors say, and what is best for our football team. The one thing that is really good about him, is he's not going to do anything to put himself in harm's way. He knows his body. We're certainly not interested in doing anything of that nature. But we're going to give ourselves about that 48 hours that we do have until we kick off on Sunday."
Justin Davis (shoulder), one of Gurley's backups, is also listed as questionable for Sunday's game. That could mean C.J. Anderson might start in his first game since signing with the team.
"That's a possibility," McVay said.
