Rams RB Todd Gurley not in attendance at OTAs
Just when we thought all of the talk about the condition of Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley’s knee was finally starting to die down, it’s probably going to start ramping up again.
Gurley has not yet been in attendance at organized team activities, joining cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters and pass rusher Dante Fowler among those who were not present.
Rams head coach Sean McVay is not worried about Gurley’s absence, saying that he and the Pro Bowler had already discussed their offseason plan:
“As long as we’re on the same page, we feel good about that, and most importantly, Todd feels good,” said McVay, according to Ryan Kartje of The Orange County Register. “He’s got a lot of experience. He’s staying up to date with everything that’s going on. But that’s where we’re at with him right now.”
So, basically, Gurley is working out on his own, which is fine. After all, these current team workouts are voluntary. But could this mean that there is still something going on with Gurley’s knee?
The only recent update we have heard from the 24-year-old came last month when he said his knee felt “pretty good,” but that was pretty much it.
Gurley originally injured his knee back in Week 15 and missed the final two games of the regular season.
He then looked spectacular in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, racking up 115 yards and a couple of touchdowns, but in the NFC Championship Game and the Super Bowl, Gurley seemed very limited, sparking discussion that he was not 100 percent.
