Rams not ruling out RB Gurley


The Sports Xchange

Running back Todd Gurley will get some work with the first team this week and head coach Jeff Fisher didn’t rule out the rookie first-round pick for Sunday’s game at Washington.

Gurley is recovering from reconstructive knee surgery in November 2014 during his final season at Georgia. The Rams limited him during offseason workouts and didn’t expose him to contact in training camp.

Fisher said the final call on Gurley will be made with input from medical staff and team personnel, and wouldn’t be left up to Gurley or Fisher alone.

Benny Cunningham started for St. Louis in the Week 1 victory over the Seahawks.

Second-year back Tre’ Mason returned to practice and should be available, Fisher said, after fighting off a hamstring strain. Fisher said Mason was “close” to being activated for the season-opener.
