Todd Gurley gave the Los Angeles Rams, their fans and fantasy owners everywhere a scare Sunday night when he missed time with a knee injury.

Seen on the sideline with ice on his knee, Gurley did return to the game later on. And according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, “the sense is he’s on track to play this week.”

Based on the way Jared Goff has struggled the past three weeks, the Rams need Gurley now more than they have all year long. They’ve lost their last two games to NFC playoff contenders and need to finish strong.

On the season, Gurley has racked up 1,831 yards and 21 touchdowns from scrimmage.

Next up for Los Angeles is a road game against the Arizona Cardinals before they wrap up their season at home against the San Francisco 49ers.
