Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley did not practice Wednesday because of a thigh contusion in his left quadriceps and is considered day-to-day ahead of a Week 6 NFC West matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, coach Sean McVay said. "We're really just taking our time making that decision", McVay said.
Now there are questions about the health of his quad.
Gurley's workload had already been toned down with just 78 touches through the first five weeks, as he's gained 270 yards on 64 carries with 68 yards on 14 receptions. The Rams will defer to Gurley whether he's ready to go.
Gurley was designated as doubtful on Friday, so his out status was expected.
The 2019 National Football League season is only six weeks old and there are already major questions about the health of the star running back.
And while this may still end up being the case for Los Angeles since it's only the middle of October, San Francisco has made a strong case for the role after an impressive 4-0 start, with their latest win coming on Monday over the Cleveland Browns.
