With the Los Angeles Rams set to face off against the Arizona Cardinals, RB Todd Gurley is expected to play barring any setbacks in the pre-game warmup, per Adam Schefter:
Unless Rams’ RB Todd Gurley has a setback in pregame warmups today, the team is planning for him to play vs. Cardinals, per source. Rams think he has felt better as week has progressed.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 23, 2018
Gurley seemingly hasn’t been 100% healthy since the Kansas City Chiefs matchup prior to the bye week, though he hasn’t missed any games thus far. Gurley was listed as questionable for this contest on the injury report this week, but it seems he’ll be able to suit up, though his workload is a complete unknown. For a team that’s guaranteed a playoff spot, it makes a lot of sense to keep Gurley’s workload light.
Recently signed RB C.J. Anderson — as well as rookie RB John Kelly — will likely get some playing time. Anderson was expected to receive the bulk of the work had Gurley missed the game. Gurley’s injury probably signals a decent workload for Anderson as the Rams would be wise to try and conserve Gurley as much as possible.
