The Los Angeles Rams hope to have Todd Gurley back this week as they deal with the first three-game losing streak of the Sean McVay era.
McVay told reporters Monday the team was "hopeful to be able to get him back for Atlanta."
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday on Good Morning Football that it's a week-to-week situation with Gurley.
"He is not ruled out for this week. He does have a chance to go," Rapoport said. "Not considered something long, long term."
One issue for Gurley is that the thigh injury is on the same leg as the knee issue that the running back dealt with dating back to last season, which is why stability is part of the concern that caused the Rams to hold him out Sunday.
His situation will be one to monitor as the week presses forward.
As is Malcolm Brown's. Gurley's backup is day-to-day with an ankle injury, McVay said Monday.
Other injuries we're monitoring around the league Monday:
- Green Bay Packers receiver Geronimo Allison has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game, the team announced. Allison is still being evaluated for a concussion after exiting in the third quarter following a helmet-to-helmet hit. Allison also suffered a chest injury on the play.
- The Detroit Lions announced the following inactives for tonight's game: S Quandre Diggs, DT Mike Daniels, DL Da'Shawn Hand, CB Amani Oruwariye, G Oday Aboushi, G Ben Benzschawel and QB David Blough.
The Packers announced the following inactives: WR Davante Adams, RB Dexter Williams, CB Tony Brown, S Darnell Savage, G Cole Madison, G/T Adam Pankey and TE Robert Tonyan.
- The Chicago Bears officially placed Kyle Long due to a hip injury. This marks the fourth consecutive year Long's season has been cut short. Rapoport noted that with Long's contract accounting for a $9.6 million cap number next year with no guaranteed money due, this could be the last we've seen of the Pro Bowl guard in the Windy City.
QuarterbackMitchell Trubisky joined the team on the practice field today. Trubisky suffered a shoulder injury in their Week 4 win against the Vikings.
- Kansas City Chiefs wideout Sammy Watkins is expected to play Thursday night after sitting out Sunday with a hamstring injury, Rapoport reports. The development comes as a surprise as his injury is not considered minor according to Rapoport.
- New England Patriots rookie receiver N'Keal Harry (ankle) is eligible to practice beginning this week as he returns from injured reserve. Bill Belichick was non-committal on Harry's status during his conference call, saying the WR is where he needs to be but needs to physically show he can compete at a high level in practice, per NFL Network's Mike Giardi.
New England placed fullback Jakob Johnson (shoulder) on injured reserve.
- Houston Texans right tackle Tytus Howard suffered a sprained MCL and is expected to miss several weeks, a source tells Rapoport.
Starting cornerback Bradley Roby is dealing with a significant hamstring injury that he suffered in Sunday's game, Rapoport reports. He's likely to miss about a month.
- Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich told reporters Monday that linebacker Darius Leonard and safety Clayton Geathers have cleared concussion protocol.
- Tennessee Titans coach Mike Vrabel said he anticipates rookie defensive end Jeffery Simmons practicing this week. The first-round pick tore his ACL in February while training for the draft.
- Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Marqise Lee has a sprained ankle that was described as minor to moderate, a source tells Rapoport. Lee is considered week-to-week, so he'll likely miss some time, Rapoport adds.
Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick is expected to miss about a month with a hyperextended knee, informed sources tell Rapoport. He's expected to visit a doctor on Tuesday.
- Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt has suffered a torn pectoral muscle, Rapoport confirmed. Tuitt will undergo surgery soon, effectively ending his 2019 campaign.
