Rams’ Sean McVay says Todd Gurley is ‘feeling really good’
There has been a whole lot of speculation about Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley since the 2018-19 campaign ended, most of it negative.
Gurley is coming off of a season in which he suffered a knee injury in Week 15, an injury that knocked him out for the final two games of the regular season.
He returned in the Divisional Round of the playoffs and looked great, rushing for 115 yards and a couple of touchdowns in a win over the Dallas Cowboys, but virtual no-shows in the NFC Championship Game and the Super Bowl had many worried about his health.
Entering 2019, those concerns have not changed, but Rams head coach Sean McVay says that his halfback is feeling just fine:
“Todd is feeling really good,” said McVay, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. “He’s continuing to really show a lot of the things that make him such an elite player and I think he’s feeling really good. It’s been a smart plan with Todd…and we’re are going to continue to follow that.”
There has been some discussion about whether or not Gurley is developing arthritis, and while the running back bristled at such talk earlier this offseason, he also didn’t deny it, which further caused people to worry about his status.
Obviously, the only person who really knows how Gurley is feeling is Gurley himself, so it will certainly be interesting to see how he looks at the start of the regular season.
The 25-year-old racked up 1,251 yards and a league-leading 17 touchdowns on the ground this past year, making the Pro Bowl and earning a First-Team All-Pro selection as a result.
