Todd Gurley’s knee drama continues
There was little question during the Los Angeles Rams’ Super Bowl run that star running back Todd Gurley was dealing with some serious knee issues. Those issues have plagued him and the team all offseason and, by all indications, he’s nowhere near 100 percent.
Todd Gurley says his knee is “feeling pretty good.” Not worried about any lingering effects of injury that caused him to miss 2 games last season, focused on making sure he’s best shape possible for week 1. Lot of rest part of healing process in the early part of this offseason.
