The Los Angeles Rams on Friday listed running back Todd Gurley as doubtful to play in this weekend's NFC West showdown against the San Francisco 49ers. Gurley did not practice at all this week due to a left thigh contusion, an injury sustained in the Rams' 30-29 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 3.

Running back Malcolm Brown likely will receive the bulk of the snaps should Gurley sit out against the visiting 49ers (4-0) on Sunday (4:05 p.m. ET). Rookie Darrell Henderson could be in line for an increased workload as well versus San Francisco's fifth-ranked rush defense. Gurley has rushed 64 times for 270 yards with five touchdowns this season for the Rams (3-2).

Though he has been healthy for all five games this season, Gurley has seen his workload cut dramatically thus far in 2019 relative to 2018. He has 42 fewer touches, 307 fewer yards and four fewer touchdowns this season compared to his statistics through five games last season. Brown, who had just one carry against the Seahawks, has 26 rushes for 114 yards and two touchdowns this season.

Henderson has just one carry for zero yards since being selected by the Rams in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The Rams also ruled starting cornerback Aqib Talib out because of injured ribs.
