Todd Gurley to begin camp on active roster

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Rams were prepared to let rookie running back Todd Gurley start training camp on the non-football injury list if need be.

Apparently, there will be no need.

According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Gurley passed his conditioning test Tuesday — “impressively” — and will begin camp on the active roster.

Fantasy Impact: 

As recently as last week, there were reports that the Rams were content to ease Gurley into things after he tore his ACL last November, which allowed them to get him with the 10th pick in the draft, the story said, especially being fairly deep with Tre Mason, Benny Cunningham and Isaiah Pead. But this is a good sign for potential owners that he may not miss time in camp and should start the season at full speed. The Rams want to be a run-first offense and it looks like Gurley is going to be a huge part of that.
