Gurley's knee will be examined this week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Gurley missed a drive during Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Eagles while sporting a wrap around his left knee, but he made it back early in the fourth quarter and finished with 124 scrimmage yards and two TDs. While his ability to play through the injury is obviously a good sign, the Rams want to take a closer look before they begin practice for Week 16 at Arizona.
Gurley carried the ball 12 times for 48 yards and two touchdowns, adding 76 yards on 10 receptions (13 targets) in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Eagles.
Gurley had to miss an offensive drive after suffering an injury scare in the second half, but he was able to return and finish out the contest. The star back was able to rebound from a poor showing against the Bears last week, surpassing 100 total yards and turning in his sixth multi-touchdown game of the season. The 10 receptions were a season high, and were directly a result of the Eagles playing very soft coverage on the Rams' downfield threats, allowing Gurley to gobble up a ton of Jared Goff's dump-off passes. Assuming his knee injury doesn't linger past this contest, Gurley could be in line for a huge game against the Cardinals and their bottom-feeding run defense in Week 16.

Gurley missed a series to get a knee injury checked out, but his return to the field suggests he's not dealing with a major injury.
Gurley left Sunday's game against the Eagles with a knee injury and is considered questionable to return, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
With Justin Davis (shoulder) exiting earlier in the contest, rookie John Kelly is in the game at running back. Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports that Gurley is jumping and moving around on the sideline, presumably testing out his knee to see if he can re-enter the game.
Gurley rushed 11 times for 28 yards, adding another 30 yards on three receptions (seven targets) in Sunday's 15-6 loss to the Bears.
This was obviously Gurley's worst performance of the season. Outside of one 12-yard rush, the star back couldn't maneuver away or through the Bears' stout front seven. The 11 carries are a bit of a surprise considering the game was never really out of reach, but it may not have made much of a difference considering how the rest of his rushes went. Gurley has been one of the best fantasy performers this season, and should continue to be treated as such -- assuming this dud didn't come in a fantasy playoff game -- against the Eagles in Week 15.
