The Los Angeles Rams are locked in a tight game with the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football in Week 11. Unfortunately, one thing we haven’t seen much of to this point is Rams running back Todd Gurley. The talented runner entered this game with an elite matchup and was primed for a big night against the Chiefs.
As the second half of the game began, Gurley had totaled just 28 combined yards, leaving fantasy football owners wondering what the situation was. And it seems we now have somewhat of an answer. According to Mike Tagliere of Fantasy Pros, Gurley apparently suffered an early injury in the game.
While Gurley has been on the field during the second half, it seems he’s somewhat of a decoy to this point. With seven minutes remaining in the third quarter, Gurley was still sitting with 28 total yards and there had been no additional information revealed on his current status or the injury.
Updates on Todd Gurley’s Status
Gurley was able to pull down back-to-back receptions early in the third quarter to add to his stat line. It’s tough to tell from the plays what exactly the potential injury issue may be. He also received two carries a bit later on the same drive, so it seems as though the Rams are starting to roll him out a bit more and get him involved to some extent.
We’ll update here as additional information is provided on his status. For the time being, it seems Gurley will remain in the game and the Rams are beginning to utilize him a bit more as the second half rolls on.
Gurley was on the field throughout the bulk of the second half but hasn’t been able to bolster his stat line much. When all was said and done, he finished with 12 rushes for 55 yards while adding three receptions for 39 yards. For a game which finished with a final score of 54-51, it was certainly a surprising outcome, and we’ll have to wait for a further update on any injury news.
