St. Louis Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley has yet to make his NFL debut but that could all change Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
For starters, Gurley isn’t on the Rams injury report this week and that’s a first for him. The 10th overall draft pick out of Georgia was inactive the first two weeks of the season as he continues to complete his comeback from the torn ACL that he suffered back in November.
On Wednesday, Gurley said he would be ready to play Sunday against the Steelers if given the green light and the Rams could certainly use a boost to their running game should he ultimately suit up as they’ve only managed 143 total rushing yards in their first two games of the season.
Rams head coach Jeff Fisher was asked Wednesday about how Gurley has looked in practice so far this week.
“He’s had two good days,” said Fisher. “He had a good day today in pads and he had a good day at the three-quarters speed practice yesterday. So he’ll get a day off tomorrow and we’ll see where how he is Friday.”
Fisher, however, isn’t ready to say whether or not Gurley will play on Sunday.
As far as players who are on the Rams injury report Wednesday, running back Chase Reynolds (knee) and defensive end Eugene Sims (knee) are both listed as not practicing. Both players sat out the Rams Week 2 game against the Washington Redskins.
