The Los Angeles Rams have declared RB Todd Gurley out for Sunday’s Week 6 game against the San Francisco 49ers.
While Gurley was listed “doubtful” on the final injury report, they’ve gone ahead and just ruled him out and made subsequent roster transactions to ensure protection at running back.
With RB Malcolm Brown and rookie RB Darrell Henderson, Jr., looking to take the workload at running back, the Rams needed to staff the RB3 slot. So they’ve promoted RB John Kelly from the practice squad. That would seemingly suggest he’s going to be active, but we’ll see how the inactives shake out an hour or so before kickoff. To make room for Kelly, the Rams waived WR Nsimba Webster. We’ll have to see how they handle things once Gurley comes back (hopefully) for Week 7 when the Rams travel to take on the Atlanta Falcons.
For this weekend though, it means Todd Gurley will be back on the sideline again.
