Sean McVay, on why Todd Gurley wasn't on the field throughout the fourth quarter of a 17-12 loss to the Steelers: "It really just had to do with that we had kind of gone into it and just feeling it out, we feel like [Gurley] is doing really well, he's playing at a high level. Malcolm made some tough hard-earned runs too. He's been a guy that's demonstrated he can make some plays. It's nothing really other than that."

Rams offensive line has been hit with injuries. Center Brian Allen has a MCL injury and will be sidelined for the season. Right tackle Rob Havenstein has a meniscus injury and will be out at least a week, most likely two. Also, receiver Brandin Cooks, who Sean McVay said was asymptomatic, will be out this week as well, and will be re-evaluated next week.
