Injury Report 12/19: McVay says Gurley Expected to Play on Sunday

While running back Todd Gurley has experienced some knee inflammation over the last week, head coach Sean McVay said on Wednesday that he's still expecting Gurley to play in Sunday's penultimate game of the regular season against the Cardinals.

"He's doing good," McVay said. "I think he's making good progress. It's still earlier in the week, but I think he's feeling good. Came in, was feeling better today. So that's good news."

Gurley was announced as having a knee injury during the second half of Sunday's loss to Philadelphia, but still was able to finish the game with 10 receptions for 76 yards, along with his 12 carries for 48 yards and two touchdowns.

Gurley was listed as a non-participant on Los Angeles' Wednesday injury report, which is an estimate as L.A. held only a walk-thru.

Also at running back, reserve Justin Davis would not have participated in Wednesday's practice.

With two banged-up players at the position, the Rams signed veteran RB C.J. Anderson on Tuesday. According to McVay, Anderson could contribute as early as this week.

"Really impressed just being around him in the initial 24 hours, or whatever it's been. Very sharp, cerebral player," McVay said. "It's going to be good to be able to get him in here, get him up to speed as quickly as possible."

Elsewhere on Los Angeles' injury report, outside linebacker Samson Ebukam would have missed practice as well with an illness.

On the other side, Arizona had six players listed as non-participants, including second-year safety Budda Baker (knee).

Below is the full Wednesday injury report for both teams:
