Gurley and Kupp Ready to Open Training Camp with Rams

Los Angeles Rams star running back Todd Gurley and wide receiver Cooper Kupp are set to take part in the team’s Saturday practice that opens their 2019 training camp at UC Irvine.

Gurley has not taken part in any football activities since Los Angeles lost Super Bowl LIII 13-3 to New England in February. Nevertheless, the running back was a regular presence throughout the offseason program at the team’s training facility but only worked out off-site with his own personal trainer.

Rams head coach Sean McVay told the media on Friday that Gurley would be ready to play and the team had prepared a plan to monitor the running back’s workload.

Gurley, who will begin his fifth NFL season, reported on Friday to the team’s hotel for training camp, but did not speak to the media.

Gurley had 1,251 yards rushing last season and led the NFL in touchdowns with 21 despite not playing the final two weeks of the regular season because of soreness and inflammation in the left knee.

The Rams running back returned for the playoffs and rushed for over 100 yards and one touchdown versus Dallas, but struggled during the NFC title game against New Orleans and in Super Bowl LIII.

Kupp tore his ACL last season during Week 10 and worked out during the team’s offseason program on the sideline, as well as participated in a limited number of drills at a jog-through pace. McVay said that Kupp was cleared to take part in practice.

Before being injured last season, Kupp had 40 receptions for 566 yards with six touchdowns in the eight games he played. Kupp missed two games prior to tearing his ACL due to an injured knee suffered against Denver in Week 6.
