As NFL teams released their final injury reports on Friday, a pair of names in particular raised some eyebrows -- one for his game status and the other for being on the injury report at all. First in Los Angeles, the Rams listed running back Todd Gurley as doubtful to play in Sunday's NFC West showdown against the San Francisco 49ers at the LA Memorial Coliseum.
