Gurley: Overseas game 'messes up' schedules

Rams running back Todd Gurley makes it clear he loves the NFL's fans overseas, but he thinks the scheduling of international games needs some logistical work.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Rams RB Todd Gurley is not a huge fan of this whole International Series thing, at least from a logistics standpoint. "Terrible," he said of a schedule that had the Rams spend nearly seven days in Jacksonville, then fly to London to face the Cardinals on Sunday. "They should stop this, all this stuff. This London, this Mexico City stuff, it needs to stop." Gurley added: "I mean, it's cool playing over there, don't get me wrong. It's just more of the long week. Messes up with people's schedule. I'm pretty sure y'all (the media) wanna be in y'all bed right now. But naw, it's all good. It'll be love. The fans over there are great."

Griff Sumner, 7, meets his hero, Todd Gurley. Griff became infatuated with Gurley at Georgia and never thought he would see him in person -- until the Rams played the Jaguars, then stayed in Jacksonville.

Rams RB Todd Gurley met his biggest fan, Griff Sumner, 7, before today's practice. You probably know him from social media. (I mistakenly said he was 11 at first.)

Rams DL Michael Brockers, on Adrian Peterson: "Man, when you got a name like 'All Day' as your nickname, it's kind of hard to back that up. And he can give it to you all day, man. If you let him get going, he can have 293 yards. I've been a part of that game when he's had 200 yards, and you just can't stop him. We just have to get him before he gets started. Get him in the backfield, get tackles for loss, mess up their rhythm."

Rams DL Michael Brockers, on facing the Cardinals: "This is a divisional game. They know us, we know them. They don't like us very much, we don't like them very much. It'll be an all-out war."

Rams QB Jared Goff, who grew up near San Francisco, started a GoFundMe page to help those affected by California wildfires. Seeing what J.J. Watt did for Hurricane Harvey victims "gave me an idea," he said.

Rams coach Sean McVay said DB Lamarcus Joyner, who missed the last three weeks with a hamstring injury, will play on Sunday "if everything goes according to plan." ILB Mark Barron (thumb) and S Cody Davis (thigh) sat out practice, but the Rams have a chance to be fully healthy near the midway point of the season. "Very fortunate," said McVay, who credited the training staff.

One thing Rams QB Jared Goff would like to improve on from Sunday is "throwing the ball down the field." "I was disappointed we didn't hit any of those deep balls," he said. Asked specifically about connecting with Sammy Watkins (10 targets and 2 catches the last 3 weeks), Goff said: "We've done it before; I don't think we need to change anything. Just continue to get reps, try to dial it in, and be more consistent. But we've done it before."
