|Dec 24 2018 - Lamarcus Joyner|
S Lamarcus Joyner sustained an ankle injury against Arizona. The injury was not serious, head coach Sean McVay said. Joyner will be day to day. "Lamarcus, his ankle was good. It's going to be a day-to-day deal but everything checked out pretty clean. Got that thing rolled up on a little bit but I think the way that he attacks his rehab this week, we'll be day-to-day with him, but I expect him to be able to be in good shape. But we'll see how he responds when these guys get back in here on Wednesday."
|Dec 24 2018 - Todd Gurley II|
RB Todd Gurley could be a bystander for the second straight game, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Monday. Gurley missed his first game since his rookie season on Sunday in the Rams' 31-9 win over the Arizona Cardinals. The Pro Bowl running back, who is dealing with inflammation in his left knee, participated in pregame drills before the team elected to err on the side of caution.
|Dec 23 2018 - Robert Woods|

DT Aaron Donald, who broke two records with his 3.0 sacks on quarterback Josh Rosen Sunday, set the league's single-season record for sacks by a defensive tackle, then broke the overall franchise single-season sack record. He now has 19.5 sacks.
|Dec 23 2018 - CJ Anderson|
RB C.J. Anderson, the former Denver Broncos running back who signed with the Rams on Tuesday in order to replace the injured Todd Gurley, had 20 carries for 167 yards and a touchdown against the Cardinals on Sunday. Anderson has been released three times this year -- by the Broncos in April, the Carolina Panthers in November and the Oakland Raiders 12 days ago -- but he looked like he was in top form with the Rams against the Cardinals."If you watch the tape, that was nothing different than my game from what I've done plenty of times," Anderson said. "The big boys played really great up front. Obviously I get nothing going if it wasn't for them. That's been my game since I've been in (the league) for six years. If you ever paid attention to any football with C.J. Anderson in it, you wouldn't be surprised at all."
|Dec 23 2018 - Todd Gurley II|
RB Todd Gurley was ruled inactive for Sunday's game against the host Arizona Cardinals. Gurley, who is dealing with inflammation in his left knee, was held out for a series in the third quarter of last week's 30-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He has not practiced all week. With Gurley inactive, newcomer C.J. Anderson figures to lead the Rams' backfield with second-year pro Justin Davis serving in a change-of-pace role for Los Angeles (11-3). The Rams, who have clinched the NFC West, face the division-rival Cardinals (3-11) and San Francisco 49ers (4-10) to wrap up the regular season.
|Dec 21 2018 - CJ Anderson|
RB C.J. Anderson might start in his first game since signing with the Rams because of injuries to Todd Gurley and Justin Davis. "That's a possibility," head coach Sean McVay said.
|Dec 21 2018 - Justin Davis|
RB Justin Davis (shoulder), one of Gurley's backups, is also listed as questionable for Sunday's game.
|Dec 21 2018 - Todd Gurley II|
RB Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams missed all week because of a knee injury, but coach Sean McVay said the decision on whether he will play Sunday against Arizona will be made that morning.
McVay said earlier this week that the Rams will not do anything to jeopardize Gurley's availability for the playoffs, which would seem to suggest that Gurley will have to show a lot in that pre-game workout in order playing against the Cardinals. "We're not going to do anything that isn't smart for Todd," McVay said. "I thought he said it perfectly yesterday. It's a team effort -- trusting how he feels, what our doctors say, and what is best for our football team. The one thing that is really good about him, is he's not going to do anything to put himself in harm's way. He knows his body. We're certainly not interested in doing anything of that nature. But we're going to give ourselves about that 48 hours that we do have until we kickoff on Sunday."
|Dec 19 2018 - Todd Gurley II|
RB Todd Gurley II is dealing with inflammation in his left knee and the Rams will monitor his usage and playing time accordingly over the final two regular-season games. The tricky part is the Rams need two more wins - or one win and a Chicago Bears loss - to wrap up a first-round bye in the playoffs so resting Gurley is an option they'll use only if absolutely necessary.
"It's going to be predicated on what (Gurley) says, what the doctors are saying," Rams head coach Sean McVay said. "If there's a chance he's going to do something that's gonna set him back for when you get into the playoffs, different things like that, that's when we're going to have to make smart decisions for our football team."
|Dec 19 2018 - CJ Anderson|
RB C.J. Anderson was signed to a contract, the team announced. Anderson is expected to provide depth at his position through the final two regular-season games and playoffs with fellow running back Todd Gurley being considered day-to-day because of inflammation in his knee.
|Dec 18 2018 - CJ Anderson|
RB C.J. Anderson will sign with the Los Angeles Rams, Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reported Tuesday. The team has not yet announced the move. The Rams believe running back Todd Gurley will be all right despite inflammation in his knee, but they lost backup Malcolm Brown to a season-ending injury. The 27-year-old Anderson will give the Rams some experienced depth at the position.
|Dec 18 2018 - Todd Gurley II|
RB Todd Gurley is considered as day-to-day as he deals with inflammation in his left knee. Gurley was held out for a series in the third quarter of Sunday night's 30-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. While Gurley downplayed the situation, coach Sean McVay told reporters that he wants his star running back to play in the final two games for the Rams (11-3). Los Angeles, which has clinched the NFC West, faces the division-rival Arizona Cardinals (3-11) and San Francisco 49ers (4-10) to wrap up the regular season.
|Dec 17 2018 - Aqib Talib|

DT Ndamukong Suh was no stranger to being fined during his time with the Detroit Lions. Suh, however, was also fined in his return to the Motor City during last week's game after his horse-collar tackle of Lions running back Zach Zenner. The tackle, which cost Suh $20,054, also triggered a 15-yard penalty. Suh was docked more than $600,000 due to fines and suspensions during his five seasons with Detroit.

A 2014 Pro Bowl selection and Super Bowl 50 champion, the 5-foot-8, 225-pound running back is now in his sixth year in the NFL after playing his first five seasons with the Denver Broncos (2013-17) and making a stop in Carolina this season with the Panthers.

Coach Sean McVay did not detail the severity of the injury, but told reporters that the loss of the 25-year-old Brown as the primary backup to Todd Gurley will be felt by the team. "You always want to try and be positive, but I think losing Malcolm is a huge loss for us and depending upon how long that is," McVay said, via the Los Angeles Times. "But it's a big deal for those guys to have to step up, and they've got large shoes to fill, that's for sure." Brown has rushed 43 times for 212 yards and added five receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown for the Rams (11-1), who visit the Chicago Bears (8-4) on Sunday night (8:20 p.m. ET).
