Gurley (quad) doubtful vs. 49ers; Talib out

The Rams will be without their best corner and possibly their best running back against the undefeated 49ers on Sunday. He's put up 270 rushing yards in five games and is on pace for a career-worst season. A lot of it could be predicated on injuries, as Los Angeles is dealing with a lot of shortages, too, like the 49ers.

Take a look at two weeks ago when Gurley only received just five carries in a key game at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and it's clear that something is going on. Sean McVay said on Friday that Aqib Talib will not play against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6, while Todd Gurley is doubtful.

If Gurley is unable to play, expect Malcolm Brown and rookie Darrell Henderson to carry the load at running back for the Rams. He suffered the injury last week against the Seahawks and despite the extra days of rest, he hasn't made much progress.

NFL Network's Steve Wyche reported that the Rams knew Gurley was sore earlier in the week, but added neither Gurley nor the club expected the pain to last this long.

"You feel something during the game and then I guess the adrenaline.", Gurley said Thursday, when asked about suffering the injury.
