St. Louis Rams: Todd Gurley May Miss the Season Finale In San Francisco

Piecing together a few very telling bits of information might lead one to believe that St. Louis Rams’ fans have seen the last of rookie running back Todd Gurley in 2015.

For starters, Gurley missed his second consecutive practice on Thursday [foot], and was spotted in a  walking boot, according to Post-Dispatch’s Jim Thomas.

Second, the Rams made a few roster moves on Thursday that might be telling.  The team placed Nick Fairley and Doug Worthington on season-ending IR, and claimed cornerback Troy Hill from the Patriots.  More telling, they promoted running back Malcolm Brown from the practice squad.

The Rams offense is, without a doubt, more dangerous with Gurley on the field, but his health is also of the utmost importance to the Rams’ future.  For now, it looks as though they’ll lean on Benny Cunningham and Tre Mason as the primary ball-carriers in San Francisco this Sunday.
