Unlike last week when the Rams waited until game time, Gurley has been ruled out before we even get to Sunday.

Well this is new.

Last week against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16, the Los Angeles Rams made a gametime decision to leave RB Todd Gurley inactive. Today, the Rams ruled him OUT against the San Francisco 49ers from the official team injury report.

S Lamarcus Joyner will also be ruled OUT.

EDGE Ethan Westbrooks and RB Justin Davis are both listed QUESTIONABLE.

Perhaps more concerning is Gurley’s status heading into the playoffs per Rams Head Coach Sean McVay:

I would think [Gurley is available for the playoffs], but if you had said a couple of weeks ago that we’d have to hold him out for the last two weeks, we probably would have been surprised about that.

Based upon the information that we’re getting, there isn’t any reason for us to press the panic button or think that he won’t be available. But it is important for us to get him back to full speed and the health that he feels like he can go compete at and we’re not doing anything to put him at risk and he’s not doing anything for the longevity of his career.

Here’s the Niners’ side:
