Rams RB Todd Gurley says knee is ‘feeling pretty good’
The knee of Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley was a hot topic of discussion throughout these past NFL Playoffs, as Gurley was battling through a knee injury he suffered back in Week 15 of the regular season.
The good news is that Gurley seems to be feeling much better now, saying that his knee is “feeling pretty good,” according to Ryan Kartje of The Orange County Register.
Gurley is coming off of a terrific 2018 campaign in which he racked up 1,251 yards and a league-leading 17 touchdowns on the ground while averaging 4.9 yards per carry en route to a Pro Bowl appearance and First-Team All-Pro honors. In addition, he hauled in 59 receptions for 580 yards and four scores.
After a terrific performance in the Rams’ Divisional Round win over the Dallas Cowboys in which Gurley totaled 115 yards and a pair of touchdowns, the 24-year-old carried the ball just four times for 10 yards in the NFC Championship Game and accumulated a meager 35 yards on 10 carries in Los Angeles’ Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots.
As a result of Gurley’s dip in production in the Rams’ final two playoff contests, speculation ran rampant about just how healthy Gurley was, but with an entire offseason to get healthy, it seems that Gurley will be just fine heading into 2019.
The Baltimore native, who played his collegiate football at the University of Georgia, was originally selected by the Rams with the 10th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.
He has gone on to make three Pro Bowls while earning two Fist-Team All-Pro selections.
