Todd Gurley (knee) was removed from the Rams' injury report.

Coach Sean McVay expected Gurley to be limited, but this confirms he didn't have any setbacks in the Divisional Round. Gurley should see a larger share of the workload over C.J. Anderson in the NFC Championship.

Josh Reynolds caught 1-of-4 targets for 19 yards in the Rams' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys, adding a nine-yard rush.

The Rams' No. 3 receiver was simply not needed with the ground game cooking. That will not remain the case for the NFC Championship Game, regardless of the Rams' opponent.
Jan 13 - 12:35 AM

Brandin Cooks caught 4-of-6 targets for 65 yards in the Rams' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys, adding a five-yard rush.

Cooks was lucky to post the yardage he did, as the Rams were riding the run. Regardless of the Rams' NFC Championship Game opponent, Cooks should have a bigger game. The Eagles have an undermanned secondary, and the Saints would be a guaranteed shootout.
Jan 13 - 12:34 AM

Robert Woods caught 6-of-8 targets for 69 yards in the Rams' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys, adding a nine-yard rush.

Woods was the Rams' leading receiver on a night where Jared Goff managed just 186 yards. The highlight came in the broadcast booth, where FOX's Troy Aikman appeared to call Woods the best receiver in football. Despite Woods' excellent 2018, we are going to have to disagree.

Jared Goff completed 15-of-28 passes for 186 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Rams' 30-22, Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

Goff's primary task was handing the ball off, as the Rams dialed up a whopping 48 runs, unveiling a two-headed attack between Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson. When he was called on to throw, Goff uncorked some beauties but also some unsightly duds. FOX commentator Troy Aikman at one point called back-to-back throws "horrendous." Goff is going to be needed for more in the NFC Championship Game, especially if the Rams have to make the daunting trek to New Orleans.
Jan 13 - 12:02 AM

C.J. Anderson rushed 23 times for 123 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

Stunningly, Anderson out-carried Todd Gurley 23-16, though Gurley did play more snaps. Gurley also got more involved as the game wore on. Big and bulky, Anderson was simply punishing a Cowboys defense that was excellent against the run this season. It helped that his offensive line was paving massive lanes. Although coach Sean McVay told the FOX booth that Gurley's limited usage was more of a "cardio" issue than anything else, it is safe to say that CJA is officially a part of the offense. He will be a DFS dark horse for the NFC Championship Game.

Todd Gurley rushed 16 times for 115 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' 30-22, Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

Gurley was surprisingly out-touched 23-18 by C.J. Anderson but ripped off a number of huge runs, none bigger than his slippery 35-yard touchdown rumble in the second quarter. Speaking to FOX announcer Joe Buck during the week, coach Sean McVay apparently said Gurley would be limited, and that it was "more a cardio issue" than anything else. Gurley should be ready for whatever role he is needed for against the Eagles or Saints in the NFC Championship Game.
Jan 12 - 11:16 PM

Rams declared RB Justin Davis, LBs Ogbonnia Okoronkwo and Trevon Young, DB Darious Williams, DLs Sebastian Joseph-Day and Tanzel Smart, and OL Jamil Demby inactive for the Divisional Round against the Cowboys.

This is the healthiest the Rams have been since Week 1.
Jan 12 - 7:03 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bengals hope to hire Rams QBs coach Zac Taylor as their next head coach.

Taylor's Cincinnati interview was announced one day after the regular season ended, but the Bengals cannot make anything official until the Rams' playoff run is over. That's an antiquated rule the NFL would be well served to drop. Taylor coordinated the University of Cincinnati's offense before joining Sean McVay in Los Angeles. Only 35, he would fit this offseason's trend of (supposed) young offensive gurus.
Jan 10 - 6:44 PM

Todd Gurley (knee) has been removed from the injury report for the Divisional Round.

"He looks like Todd," coach Sean McVay said Thursday. "He looks like the explosive, great back that we're used to seeing." Gurley missed the final two games of the season but has now had three weeks to rest. We would expect him to be full bore against the Cowboys.
Jan 10 - 3:56 PM

Todd Gurley (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Gurley sat out the Rams' final two regular season games and also had the bye week to rest his injured knee. Touchdown Todd should be out there Saturday night against Dallas, though it's hard to say how effective he'll be playing at less than 100 percent. The threat of a reduced workload makes Gurley a riskier-than-usual DFS play this week, particularly at his gaudy $9,000 price tag on FanDuel.
Jan 9 - 7:44 PM

Todd Gurley (knee) will practice on Wednesday.

Gurley is also participating in Tuesday's walk-throughs. It's encouraging, but in-house reporter Myles Simmons stopped short of guaranteeing Gurley will play against the Cowboys. "They’ll continue to monitor the running back, see how he feels," Simmons tweeted Tuesday. Most signs have pointed toward Gurley suiting up.
Jan 8 - 4:18 PM

Aaron Donald was the only unanimous first-team All-Pro pick this season, receiving 50-of-50 votes as an interior defensive lineman.

Bobby Wagner received 49-of-50 votes at inside linebacker. Donald has been named a first-team All-Pro four straight years and just wrapped up maybe his best season to date, leading the league with 20.5 sacks, falling two short of Michael Strahan's single-season record of 22.5 in 2001. Donald should be a lock for Defensive Player of the Year again after winning it last year.
Jan 4 - 12:29 PM

Rams QBs coach Zac Taylor will interview for the Broncos and Cardinals head coaching jobs on Saturday.

The Bengals are also looking to interview Taylor, though nothing is on the books yet. A disciple of offensive prodigy Sean McVay, Taylor has quickly emerged as a hot name in this year's coaching cycle. A former college QB at Wake Forest and Nebraska, the 35-year-old has been a coach in the league since 2012. He'd be a more interesting hire than some of the retreads teams are interviewing.
Jan 1 - 12:05 PM

The Broncos requested to interview Rams QBs coach Zac Taylor for their head-coaching vacancy.

Taylor, 35, has also gotten requests from the Cardinals and Bengals for their openings. Taylor is a virtual unknown, having quickly risen to fame under coach Sean McVay's watch. Teams are coming to mine the staffs of smart coaches like McVay, Doug Pederson, Andy Reid, and Bill Belichick every year.
