Rams RB Todd Gurley to Sit in Week 17

December 27th, 2017

With their playoff spot locked up, the Los Angeles Rams announced Wednesday multiple starters would not suit up in Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers. MVP candidate Todd Gurley will lead the team's healthy scratches in Week 17.

In Gurley's absence, Malcolm Brown will likely draw the start against San Francisco. Given Los Angeles will also rest starters on its offensive line and San Francisco's defensive improvement against the run, Brown will be a low-end RB3 this week.
