Update: Brian Hill and Todd Gurley split snaps almost evenly through the first two quarters.

Update: Todd Gurley returned to the game and then left again. At this point we have to think he’s just splitting time with Brian Hill.

Update: Kristina Pink reports from the sideline that Todd Gurley has been on the stationary bike, but she also hasn’t seen much indication of why Gurley is on the sideline at the moment.

Atlanta Falcons running back Todd Gurley has been on the sideline for the last three drives, but no injury has been reported. He appears to be kicking and stretching as he walks around, so he may be trying to work something out, but we haven’t noticed trainers looking at him. Brian Hill has taken over for the time being and has four carries for 25 yards.
