ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Todd Gurley took snaps with the St. Louis Rams' first-string offense for the first time, and coach Jeff Fisher wouldn't rule out the running back for this week at Washington as Gurley returns from a left knee injury.

Gurley, the 10th-overall pick in the 2015 draft, missed the team's opening 34-31 overtime win over the Seahawks.

Gurley has been steadily increasing activity coming off left knee surgery that cut short his final college season at Georgia.
