Rams rule out Todd Gurley for regular-season finale

Rams rule out Todd Gurley for regular-season finale The Rams are going to err on the side of caution. Having a backup go wild the week before made it an easier decision. 

Todd Gurley : It's really like a last-minute decision, man. It's what position my body is in, and it's like Do you think we'll see more running backs that 'll start leaping?

Setting the table for the first day of the best weekend of the professional sports calendar …

1. Early in the week, as I heard it, Rams RB Todd Gurley looked like a guy coming off a month on the shelf (he hasn’t played since Dec. 16), while, at times, flashing his trademark speed and burst. By Thursday, according to one staffer, Gurley “looked like a monster.” Bottom line: The Rams are expecting him to be himself. And more good news: C.J. Anderson is now there to spell him as needed. The plan is to get him work too.

Rams head to Super Bowl with C.J. Anderson, not Todd Gurley, carrying the load Todd Gurley spent 2018 being hailed as an MVP candidate. C.J. Anderson spent 2018 getting cut by the Broncos, the Panthers and the Raiders. And now they’re teammates, and with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, the Rams trusted Anderson more. Anderson out-played Gurley in today’s win over the Saints, having more [more]

Todd Gurley , after all, is a popular No. 1 overall pick and cemented as Los Angeles’ primary ball carrier. Like Kerryon Johnson he isn’t extraordinary in any single category, but he’s consistently solid Le’Veon Bell has an extensive injury history, is coming off extremely heavy workloads (he’s

2. Barring something strange happening with the planned hire of Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores, Cowboys secondary coach Kris Richard will finish as runner-up in Miami. Trust me when I say this: The Dallas brass is ecstatic to keep him. My understanding is that the Joneses like him so much that even if things had fallen apart this year and they made a change at head coach, they’d have tried to keep Richard on and pair him with someone like Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley. As is, there’s a really good chance the Cowboys shuffle staff after the season to pass the defensive coordinator title on from Rod Marinelli to Richard. That’s reflected in Richard’s duties, too. At the start of the year, he was setting up the back end of the defense and calling play on third downs. By the end of September, he was calling the whole game for the Cowboys.

Todd Gurley . Running Back , Los Angeles Rams. Want Custom Fantasy Scoring? A monster rookie season saw Gurley drafted as a top five pick in many fantasy drafts in 2016, which then led to major FFToday's Take: Sounds like Gurley is going to play today but how much he plays will be the story.

Before Dallas Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliott dismissed the notion running backs are devalued, Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams became the poster A funny thing happened between his rookie year and what looked like a surefire Hall of Fame career, though. Gurley faltered in his second season

3. While we’re there, the Cowboys plan to give slot receiver Cole Beasley and tight end Blake Jarwin a chance to prove they’re healthy enough to go in warmups. The team hopes to have both active and ready to go. If they can’t, we may see little more of Tavon Austin than usual. And another man to watch on the Dallas offense: rookie Connor Williams, who played well enough last week to stake a claim to his left guard spot. I’m told he’ll probably start, even with Xavier Su’a-Filo back healthy and likely up for the game. And that means he’s going to see a lot of Aaron Donald.

4. The Chiefs went to bed Friday night still unsure on WR Sammy Watkins and S Eric Berry. Watkins hasn’t played in almost two months, but there’s optimism that, pending a final check pregame, he’ll play. Berry’s situation is significantly foggier, and his heel injury has kept him pretty far from 100 percent all year. In other words, we’ll see if he plays, but it’s not like Berry has really played like his former self so far this year anyway.

5. Not that it means he and his team will win Saturday at Arrowhead, but all the credit in the world to T.Y. Hilton for the toughness he’s shown over the last couple months. He has routinely been sidelined for entire weeks of practice—he was this week, again—and still brought it on Sunday (and this week and last, Saturday). We’ll see to what degree he can help Andrew Luck exploit a shaky K.C. secondary.
