Davis was previously dealing with a shoulder issue but he had no limitations at practice this week. Todd Gurley (knee) is set to retake his starting role with C.J. Anderson serving as the No. 2 running back, sending Davis back to the inactive list.
While nursing the shoulder injury ahead of last week's win over the Cardinals, Davis was ultimately active for the game but didn't log any snaps on offense or special teams. After taking part in every practice in Week 17 -- including a full showing Friday -- Davis looks to be in a better place on the health front entering the season finale. That could enable Davis to have a role in the game plan this time around with Todd Gurley (knee) still sidelined, though it's likely that C.J. Anderson will rank as the top option out of the backfield after turning in a credible performance last week in his team debut (20 carries for 167 yards and a touchdown).
Davis was active last week while dealing with the same shoulder injury, but he didn't play any snaps in a 31-9 win over the Cardinals. He may be headed for another week as nothing more than an emergency option, with C.J. Anderson and John Kelly both better bets to handle the snaps vacated by Todd Gurley (knee).
In a Week 16 win at Arizona, Davis missed out on a chance to fill in for Todd Gurley (knee) due to a shoulder injury of his own. With more reps under his belt than Gurley this week, Davis could get in the act behind C.J. Anderson and John Kelly in a backfield sans the Rams' top runner. Coach Sean McVay has said Gurley doesn't need to practice in order to play, so Davis could be relegated to special-teams duty or even inactive status in that reality, with Anderson and Kelly better options to spell Gurley.
Davis (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's walk-through session, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.
Davis' listing is merely an estimation, but the Rams still have two practices in which he can put in some on-field reps this week. While he was active for Sunday's win over the Cardinals, Davis didn't take the field. Instead, C.J. Anderson (20 carries) and John Kelly (10) benefited in the absence of top back Todd Gurley (knee). A similar breakdown may happen in the regular-season finale if the Rams opt to get Gurley and Davis healthy for the playoffs.
