Todd Gurley Injury Status Updated Ahead Of Rams Vs. 49ers Game

Todd Gurley Day-To-Day With Thigh Contusion

It's bad news for a Rams team that has relied on Gurley's legs to carry out the play-action in recent years.

Just a few days later, McVay revealed a troubling update for Gurley heading into the team's game against the San Francisco 49ers this weekend.

Gurley's struggles have fueled speculation that the three-time Pro Bowler is still being plagued by a knee issue that kept him out for the final two games of last season and severely limited him in the NFC Championship Game and the Super Bowl. This is significant as today, Rams head coach Sean McVay told reporters that Gurley is now day-to-day with a quad injury and didn't practice today. After suffering an injury at the tail end of last season, Gurley experienced some troubles during the playoffs and wasn't being used as often or as effectively.

Against the Seahawks, Gurley rushed for 51 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries. He's got a great feel, a great motor, a lot of the same things that you see, really, from their entire group up front.

McVay also announced that starting cornerback Aqib Talib was ruled out for Sunday's matchup because of a rib injury. Garoppolo led the 49ers to a 34-13 road win in that game. The blocking and pass-catching specialist is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.
