Los Angeles had good news on its first injury report of the week, as running back Todd Gurley and safety Lamarcus Joyner were both able to get back on the field.
Gurley (knee) was listed as a limited participant on the Tuesday report — which is an estimate since the Rams held only a pair of walk-thrus. Joyner (ankle), however, was listed as a full participant.
Between the two walk-thru sessions, head coach Sean McVay said that Gurley was slated to participate in both on Tuesday, and should be able to practice the rest of the week.
“We’re going to see how he feels,” McVay said. “We’ll continue to get him more of a workload as this week progresses. And a lot of it is predicated on how he feels.”
“We’re going to get him going and he’s going to practice. And we’re going to see how he feels,” McVay added. “And I think a lot of it is just going to be him getting out there, trusting, getting some of that movement, just putting his foot in the ground, doing some of the things that he’s been accustomed to doing and seeing how that knee responds. So this week will serve as a good chance to get a gage.”
The head coach also noted once again that Gurley has done a good job of communicating how he’s feeling to the coaching and training staff throughout the entire process of his injury.
When asked if Gurley may have to play through some pain this week, McVay said he didn’t want to speak for the running back in terms of how he’s feeling. Gurley is slated to speak with the media following Wednesday’s practice.
Elsewhere on Los Angeles’ injury report, Blake Countess (concussion) was listed as a limited participant for the club’s first injury report since the regular-season finale in Week 17.
While there were only three players the Rams’ report, the Cowboys have 14 — including wide receiver Tavon Austin (limited, groin), wide receiver Cole Beasley (DNP, ankle), guard Zack Martin (knee, limited), and offensive tackle Tyron Smith (neck, limited). Quarterback Dak Prescott (knee) was also listed on the injury report, but he was nevertheless a full participant.
