Injury Report 12/26: McVay Expects to Know Gurley's Game Status Prior to Sunday

There's been no real change for running back Todd Gurley since Monday, head coach Sean McVay said on Wednesday afternoon, as the Georgia product remains day-to-day.

Gurley was listed as a non-participant on Los Angeles' Wednesday injury report, though that is an estimate as the club held only a walk-thru.


Nevertheless, McVay said both Gurley and safety Lamarcus Joyner — who sustained an ankle injury in the Week 16 win over the Cardinals — would be working with head trainer Reggie Scott on Wednesday.

"This is kind of what we felt like was going to progress them along better for the week," McVay said. "Nothing's changed in regards to their status from when we talked [on Monday]."

Gurley has been dealing with inflammation in his left knee since the Week 15 loss to the Eagles. McVay said that Gurley hasn't experienced any setbacks, and that he feels like the running back will not be a game-time decision this week.

"I would imagine that we'll know before Sunday this week, just because now it'll have been a couple weeks and I think we'll have a better indicator on how he's feeling, and how he responds, specifically just because he didn't take that pounding last week — just getting that rest," McVay said. "So, don't know for sure, but I don't anticipate it coming down to, really, the last hour and a half like it did last week."

McVay also noted Joyner is in good shape.

Also on Los Angeles' Wednesday injury report, outside linebacker Matt Longacre would not have practiced with an illness. And running back Justin Davis would've been limited with a shoulder injury.

For the 49ers, running back Matt Brieda (ankle) and wide receiver Dante Pettis (knee) are both not expected to play and did not practice on Wednesday. Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (calf) also didn't participate in Wednesday's session.
