Gurley likely to sit out Rams' finale
NAPA, Calif. (AP) St. Louis rookie running back Todd Gurley missed his third straight practice because of a right foot injury and is likely to be held out of the Rams’ final regular-season game.
The 10th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Gurley has spent the past week getting treatment on his foot after being hurt late in the second half of St. Louis’ win over Seattle.
Gurley, who also missed the first two games of the season recovering from an ACL injury in college, has improved, but coach Jeff Fisher said he doesn’t want to risk making the injury worse.
The Rams placed defensive tackles Nick Fairly and Doug Worthington on injured reserve. Running back Malcolm Brown and wide receiver Nick Toon were promoted from the practice squad, and cornerback Troy Hill was claimed off waivers from New England.
