Todd Gurley popped up on Los Angeles’ first injury report of the week, Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com reports.
The Rams running back did not practice Wednesday with a quad injury. Rams coach Sean McVay told reporters Gurley is “day-to-day” with a left thigh contusion.
Gurley was joined on the sidelines by linebacker Clay Matthews (jaw), cornerback Aqib Talib (ribs) and linebacker Natrez Patrick (hamstring). Receiver Brandin Cooks (concussion), safety Taylor Rapp (ankled) and linebacker Bryce Hager (shoulder) were limited.
Bothered by a knee injury late last season, the Rams running back has been relatively healthy so far in 2019. Gurley has played in all five of L.A.’s games, averaging 15.6 touches and 67.6 total yards per contest.
