Draft Scout News
06/04/16 - RB Todd Gurley is completely healthy this offseason - a marked difference from last year when he was still rehabbing his surgically repaired knee - and as a result he has flung himself into working out.
So much so that he's actually dropped 15 pounds, going from the 231 pounds he was listed last year to approximately 215 now.
It was not planned, according to Gurley.
But he appreciates the results.
"I don't know what happened this offseason," Gurley said. "I was just losing weight. It's probably just having the first offseason not doing anything for about a month or two. I feel fine how I am. I'm not going to add weight."
01/15/16 - WR Davante Adams was officially ruled out for the Packers' game at Arizona with a sprained MCL in his right knee.
Adams had 50 catches in the regular season and caught four passes for 48 yards and a touchdown at Washington last Sunday.
With Adams out, Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis will be in line for additional playing time. Abbrederis had two receptions for 14 yards against the Redskins.
01/05/16 - RB Todd Gurley was inactive for the game against the 49ers because of a toe injury. Gurley had been listed on the injury report with a foot injury. Head coach Jeff Fisher said, "He's got a mild turf toe. Nothing that's going to set him back, nothing that's going to be a problem for him. But we didn't feel like it was necessary to mess with it and create the possibility where we could damage the joint a little bit more." Gurley said he wants to play in the Pro Bowl, but Fisher said on Monday, "It'll be close, but we'll see. He'll make the trip, I'm sure, and then we'll make that decision. But, we're not going to put him at risk there. We're going to circle the wagons tomorrow with the doctors and find out the specifics. But, if we're going to subject him to stretching this thing out further in the offseason because he's participating in the Pro Bowl, then we're not going to go there. We would not do that."
01/03/16 - RB Todd Gurley (turf toe) missed the Rams' season-finale Sunday against San Francisco. The rookie finished the season with a team-high 1,106 rushing yards on 229 carries. He averaged 4.8 yards per catch.
01/01/16 - RB Todd Gurley is a candidate for NFL Rookie of the Year, but it appears he won't have the chance to add to his numbers in Sunday's season finale against the San Francisco 49ers.
Gurley didn't practice this week because of a foot injury suffered late in last Sunday's win over the Seattle Seahawks, and he has been in a boot all week. Listed as doubtful but not out on the injury report, head coach Jeff Fisher said after practice Friday, "You can read between the lines there."
While Fisher and the Rams are hoping to get to .500 with a win Sunday, they don't believe it's worth making the injury worse by playing him.
"We're thinking about the long-term future and he's got an issue he's dealing with," Fisher said. "We're still doing tests, but the difference between him playing and making things worse could be the difference between six to eight weeks of rehab during the offseason. Right now we got really good news and good results, but it's doubtful that he plays. He's had a little setback with the foot, so I just don't want to set him back any more. It just makes sense for the future of the organization."
Fisher did say no surgery will be necessary just "a couple of weeks" of rest.
Gurley will finish the season with 1,108 yards rushing on 229 carries (4.8-yard average) and 10 touchdowns. He added 21 receptions for 188 yards. His combined yards from scrimmage of 1,296 yards currently accounts for 29.5 percent of the team's total yards. He accomplished that despite missing the first two games of the season and getting only nine yards on six carries in his season debut.
Tre Mason will start against the 49ers and be backed up by Benny Cunningham and rookie Malcolm Brown, who was signed to the roster from the practice squad Thursday. Mason has just 163 yards on 57 attempts (2.9-yard average) this season.
Of Mason, Fisher said, "He's looking forward to this. That's why he's here. Unfortunately, if you look back through the year, our perfect world was
