Rams list Todd Gurley (rest) as questionable (by mistake)

The NFL changed their injury report procedures this offseason, eliminating the probable tag that used to be used for players who were certain to play.

Under the old system, players who rested at any point during the week would be listed as probable but the new system has no spot for players with injuries (or rest) if they’re expected to play. For example, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson isn’t on the final Seahawks report of the week despite an ankle injury because Seattle is starting him on Sunday.

According to the Rams, it’s not certain that running back Todd Gurley will join them. Gurley is listed as questionable, although it really seems the only question about him making it to Sunday is the same one we all face about making it to Sunday.

Gurley rested on Wednesday before practicing fully on Thursday and Friday. Unless Jeff Fisher takes a look at Gurley on Sunday morning and decides he needs a nap more than he needs to play in the game, Gurley is certain to be on the field for the team’s return to Los Angeles.

We won’t rule that out nor will we deny the day would be a lot more amusing if that’s how things go down.

UPDATE 6:48 p.m. ET: It turns out that the Rams listed Gurley on their injury report by mistake. He will play Sunday.

    Rest? Please. This is the second game of the season. Wonder what Stan is thinking? Maybe I should get a new coach and GM?

    Bring back Dickerson, S-Jax, or the Juggernaut from X-men… won’t matter much if the team can stack 8-9 in the box every play with such a tepid offense.

    Monday night was like the worst of the old days with Lineman or Spagnuolo.

    ^Should say Linehan above.

    @phw222

    What about Marshall Faulk? He was fairly decent as I recall.

  7. haywoodjablomey says: Sep 16, 2016 7:26 PM

    So basically, he’s “Probable”

  8. phw222 says: Sep 16, 2016 7:50 PM

    @Jasons81—nah, he was just ok.

    Just kidding. Good catch.

    Something tells me we will make excuses for Gurley when he has a terrible year BC he has nowhere to run. But when it happens to AP, it’s because he’s washed up. Tell me I’m wrong..

    The Rams might play better if Jeff Fisher rested on Sunday.

    This jackass guarantees a win against us he’s
    A monster but he can’t beat us by himself he’s gonna feel what our vicious d is bout

    this is some 7-9 bs right here

    Doesn’t matter. The Rams will give the Seahwaks fits. Fake Punt, Fake FG, On-Side Kick… it’ll work and they will make this a close game. The Rams DLine kills the Hawks every game, too. Run, Russell Run. Pete better have the team really ready this week. It will be closer than you think, but Seahawks will eek out the win 17-16.

    “Although it really seems the only question about him making it to Sunday is the same one we all face about making it to Sunday.”

    For some of us, thats a legit gamble

    GURLEY YOU’RE NOT SUPERMAN, YOU NEED O-LINE HELP…IF YOU GET THAT…YOU’LL TRANSFORM INTO A TERROR!

    PUT A FIRE UNDER THE O-LINES BUTTS!

    PLEASE ISSUE A HEART TO EACH OF THEM BEFORE THE GAME…. I THINK THEY LEFT IT AT HOME LAST GAME!

    I’M NOT A BIG CASE KEENUM FAN…AND I’M WAITING FOR GOFF TO PLAY….

    THAT BEING SAID RECIEVERS NEED TO BE OPEN…..
    COACHES NEED TO PUT PLAYERS IN A POSTION TO SUCCEED…..
    AND O-LINE NEEDS TO KEEP A DEFENSIVE PLAYER IN CHECK FOR MORE THAN .001 SECONDS
