“We’re happy with how we’ve run the ball this year. There are only [seven] teams that have run the ball more than us, so I think we’ve been fairly balanced. It’s something that we believe in and, when the game dictates, it’s what we’ll do.”
The St. Louis Rams, this Sunday’s opponent, have allowed an NFL-worst 174.3 rushing yards per game.
• Chris Cooley, the fullback, carried the ball twice on third-and-1 against Dallas. The first was successful. The second was not.
“He had looked good at it in practice and we felt good about the play,” Kyle Shanahan said. “I think we went to the well one too many times with the second time.” …
• Rookie nose tackle Chris Neild has earned more playing time, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said. Neild has continued to improve his technique reading run or pass and maintaining advantageous leverage at the point of attack.
“Neild knows what he’s doing, which helps when he pushes the pocket. He’s really done a nice job.”…
• Cornerback DeAngelo Hall was not fined for his profane critique of the officiating after Monday’s loss to Dallas, the league announced. …
• Wide receiver Anthony Armstrong, fullback Darrel Young and safety DeJon Gomes are game-time decisions with hamstring injuries, coach Mike Shanahan said. Each was limited in practice Friday. St. Louis receiver Danny Amendola (elbow) did not practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday’s game.
