Todd Gurley (Q): Todd Gurley was kept out last week with a knee injury and did not play. He has not practiced Thursday and he is still questionable to play. Even if he does, he should probably sit the bench holding an injury designation and facing the New Orleans Saints, who have allowed the least amount of fantasy points to running backs this season.
