Summary

Todd Gurley's electric two-year run of production between 2017 and 2018 is clouded by his quizzical end to the regular season and lack of usage in the postseason as the Rams ultimately lost in the Super Bowl. Gurley amassed 40 total touchdowns over the two seasons and averaged more than 125 yards-per-game as the centerpiece to arguably the most dynamic offense in the NFL. While putting up eye-popping two-way production, including more than 1,300 receiving yards, Gurley's workload was not at historically high levels at 22-23 per game. Gurley's knee injury was managed late in the year but still limited his usage in the Super Bowl despite logging the fastest measure speed of any player in the pinnacle game. Gurley's single concern is how his knee may or may not affect him in 2019. C.J. Anderson, Gurley's notable replacement, left in free agency, leaving returning Malcolm Brown (also from injury) and third-round rookie Darrell Henderson to jockey for the all-important primary backup role throughout the season.

Rams | LA Rams' injury report for Week 10 (Fri Nov 8, 04:46 PM) - Los Angeles Rams LB Bryce Hager (shoulder) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 10 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday, Nov. 8, but has also been ruled out. WR JoJo Natson (illness) was held out of practice for a second straight day Friday and is listed as questionable. RB Todd Gurley (non-injury) did not practice Friday but does not appear on the injury report. DT Tanzel Smart (illness), RB Malcolm Brown (ankle), LB Clay Matthews (jaw) and OT Andrew Whitworth (non-injury) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Our View: Matthews will be a big addition to this defense. He, Dante Fowler and Aaron Donald will keep Mason Rudolph uncomfortable all afternoon.
