However, he'll have an uphill battle against a Saints defense that allowed the second-fewest points per game (18.5) of any team on its home field this season.

RUNNING BACKS

The Rams' Todd Gurley doesn't carry an injury designation into Saturday night's clash versus the Cowboys after apparently having overcome his recent knee issues. Gurley was back up to a full practice by Thursday after opening the week with a pair of limited sessions.
