Sunday September 20th, 2015

Despite being listed as questionable throughout the week with a hamstring injury, St. Louis Rams running back Tre Mason is officially active Week 2 against the Washington Redskins. 

Mason, the Rams' starting running back for most of 2014, sat out Week 1 with the same injury. Benny Cunningham handled most of the running duties, carrying the ball 16 times for 45 yards in a 34–31 win over the Seattle Seahawks. 

The battle for the starting running back situation in St. Louis is poised to become a little more heated once rookie Todd Gurley is ready to suit up for his NFL debut. Gurley is inactive Sunday, but the Rams have always targeted Week 3 as the ideal time for his debut, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN. 

The Rams took Gurley with the 10th pick in the 2015 Draft despite the fact that he suffered a torn ACL in Nov. 2014.

Gurley rushed for 3285 yards and 42 touchdowns in just 30 games played while at Georgia.
