Full list of #LARams inactives:— Myles Simmons (@MylesASimmons) December 23, 2018
RB Todd Gurley
DB Darious Williams
OLB Ogbonnia Okoronkwo
OLB Trevon Young
OL Jamil Demby
DT Sebastian Joseph-Day
DT Tanzel Smart
If the Rams were somehow to clinch the bye after this week, this decision could help Gurley get very close to 100% health as Gurley could rest for 3 of the next 4 weeks.
With Gurley out, all signs point towards newly signed C.J. Anderson to be the starter while John Kelly would serve as his backup.
If Todd Gurley is unable to go Sunday, it is expected that CJ Anderson will start, and John Kelly will backup. Justin Davis is questionable to play. Malcolm Brown is on IR.— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) December 21, 2018
Anderson, Kelley, and Davis are the active backs today. More than likely, Anderson will be given a good portion of the work as the Rams look to get break their losing streak against the Arizona Cardinals.
Get well soon Mr. Gurley!
