ST. LOUIS (AP) Todd Gurley has been cleared to practice with the St. Louis Rams, but the 10th overall pick in the draft still won't play in the preseason.
Coach Jeff Fisher said Monday that the team would go slowly with Gurley, rehabbing from left knee surgery that ended his college career. Gurley has been working in individual drills and now will progress to 7-on-7 and team segments.
Gurley will be wearing a brace. The running back was cleared after the Rams forwarded testing results to Dr. James Andrews, who did the surgery.
Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham are expected to share the running back duties if Gurley isn't ready for the opener Sept. 13 against the Seahawks. Mason was the starter most of his rookie season.
Rookie offensive lineman Cody Wichmann (calf) was taken off the PUP list and also is expected to practice on Tuesday.
