The Los Angeles Rams began the 2019 NFL season with questions about the health of running back Todd Gurley. Head coach Sean McVay revealed that his team was planning to limit Gurley's efforts to keep him healthy for the playoffs.
All questions were about his apparently arthritic knee. However, there are now questions on his quad.
When the Rams took the training ground on Wednesday, Gurley was not there. According to Steve Wyche of the NFL, the Rams listed Gurley with a quad injury.
The injury appears to be significant enough that Gurley's status is "in the air".
Ian Rapoport, a member of the NFL, revealed that half-offensive Malcolm Brown and Darrell Henderson had received additional reps at the training. The move comes in anticipation of not having Gurley this weekend.

It's a bad sign for the Rams to worry about Gurley's status before the weekend.
The NFL's 2019 season is only six weeks away, and the star's health questioning is already raising many questions.
This weekend, Los Angeles faces tough trials against the San Francisco 49ers, who come to crush the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football.
Stay tuned for the latest news on Gurley's injury.
