Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Todd Gurley’s knee issues have been the biggest drama of the Los Angeles Rams offseason. Monday night, his personal trainer, Travelle Gaines, confirmed that the star running back had been dealing with arthritis issues in his surgically repaired knee and he and the team had been taking that into consideration in Gurley’s workload and playing weight. Last season Gurley played in 14 regular season games, gaining 1,251 yards and scoring a league-leading 17 touchdowns. He added 59 catches for 580 yards and four touchdowns through the air.

Michael Roberts claimed by Packers

The former Detroit Lions tight end’s NFL odyssey continues and Michael Roberts was claimed off waivers Monday by the Green Bay Packers. The Lions had cut Roberts after he failed a physical and couldn’t complete a trade with the New England Patriots. The Packers now have six tight ends on their roster, led by Jimmy Graham and Marcedes Lewis.

Floyd looking to break out  in 2019

While Khalil Mack tore up opponents of the Chicago Bears last season, his teammate, Leonard Floyd, didn’t exactly light up the stat sheet. Floyd dealt with a hand injury most of the season and couldn’t contribute at his talent level. Floyd is looking to bounce back and compliment Mack more this season. Floyd recorded 47 tackles, nine for a loss, one interception, one returned for a touchdown, one fumble recovery and four sacks last season.
