Please tell me that they aren't going to trade Gurley….

On the surface, the idea of trading Todd Gurley is absolutely ludicrous. When you dig deeper into a scenario where the Rams move him, it’s even more difficult to fathom. If they did trade him, they’d take on $16.8 million in dead money this year, which is $7.6 million more than his 2019 cap hit. In other words, the Rams would have to pay him $16.8 million to play for someone else]]> 5431547 Sat, 16 Feb 2019 8:42:01 EDT Rams Wire
<![CDATA[Sean McVay: No knee procedures are planned for Todd Gurley]]> Todd Gurley had nothing to say on the way out the door for the start of the offseason. Rams coach Sean McVay did, regarding Gurley. McVay said that no knee procedures are planned for Gurley in the offseason. “We haven’t talked about any of those things right now,” McVay told reporters. “I’ll [more]]]> 5425140 Tue, 05 Feb 2019 17:57:01 EDT <![CDATA[Sean McVay explains Todd Gurley's limited workload in Super Bowl]]> Todd Gurley was expected to “play a big role” in Sunday’s game. He made it clear that Gurley was “a hundred percent” healthy and ready to go against the Patriots, indicating that it would be back to his normal workload.

That was hardly the case, however, as Gurley and Anderson once again shared the backfield for the Rams with neither player having much success. Gurley rushed for 35 yards on 10 carries, while Anderson gained 22 yards on seven attempts.

Much was made about Gurley’s lack of involvement, but Sean McVay revealed on Tuesday at his post-season press conference that the plan all along was to rotate the two backs]]> 5425115 Tue, 05 Feb 2019 17:21:01 EDT Rams Wire
<![CDATA[Todd Gurley not expected to undergo offseason knee surgery]]> Todd Gurley returned in the divisional round of the playoffs, the Los Angeles Rams have maintained the notion that he’s healthy and the knee inflammation was a non-issue. That stance held true through the Super Bowl despite Gurley being limited to just 14 carries in his last two games combined.

He and the rest of the team went through exit physicals on Tuesday and as far as Sean McVay knows, Gurley doesn’t need any sort of offseason procedure on his knee.

“We haven’t talked about any of those things right now,” McVay said about offseason surgeries for Gurley. “I’ll get a chance to sit down with (head trainer) Reggie (Scott) and we’ll discuss that, but as far as I’m concerned, and as far as I know, that isn’t the case where we’re planning to do anything like that.]]> 5425114 Tue, 05 Feb 2019 17:21:01 EDT Rams Wire
<![CDATA[Rams | Todd Gurley won't need surgery]]> Todd Gurley (knee) does not need any medical procedures on the knee that bothered him later in the season. Gurley and the Rams went through physical examinations Tuesday, Feb. 5, but head coach Sean McVay said he had not talked to team trainers about those exams yet.]]> 5425099 Tue, 05 Feb 2019 17:09:01 EDT footballguys <![CDATA[Still considered healthy]]> Coach Sean McVay said he isn't aware of Gurley needing any medical procedures during the offseason, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

McVay acknowledged he hasn't spoken with the team's training staff since Gurley had his season-end physical exam Tuesday. It's possible that meeting brings something to light, but for now McVay is sticking with the party line that he simply thought a mixture of Gurley and C.J. Anderson gave the Rams their best to chance to win during the playoffs. Gurley also maintains he made a full recovery from his late-season knee injury prior to the playoffs. Running backs coach Skip Peete may have provided a better glimpse into the team's thinking a few days before the Super Bowl when he suggested that Gurley never returned to peak condition after sitting out Weeks 16 and 17. It's a reasonable explanation for getting Anderson involved, but it still doesn't explain the extent of that involvement. Gurley had just 16 touches between the NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl, after averaging 22.5 per game during the regular season. He'll likely return to his workhorse role in 2019, though there may be some concerns about volume if the Rams re-sign Anderson.

Fans and media members are seeking answers for Gurley’s lack of involvement the last two games of the year, but those may not come.

According to Rich Hammond of the O.C. Register and Omar Ruiz of the NFL Network, Gurley has declined to speak to the media during exit interviews on Tuesday.

<![CDATA[Sean McVay's 'lack of opportunities' excuse for Todd Gurley is unacceptable]]> Todd Gurley and the role he’d play in the Super Bowl. He shouldered the blame for getting Gurley just four carries in the NFC championship game, saying he “should’ve done a better job of getting Todd more involved.”

It was forgivable because the Rams still had another opportunity to get Gurley involved in the biggest game of the year: the Super Bowl. Yet, Sunday came and went and Gurley was mostly kept at bay again by his own coach, touching the ball one time for 34 yards]]> 5424241 Mon, 04 Feb 2019 9:09:01 EDT Rams Wire

The Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams with a score of 13-3 and their defense was locked in the entire game. Belichick knew that Brady wasn’t going to throw for five touchdowns and sling the ball all game, so the Patriots game planned for a run-heavy game. They pounded the ball from the very first snap and they played incredible defense — old school football at its finest.

Rams coach Sean McVay is known for explosive offensive game plans — and his team with ranked No. 2 in points scored during the regular season with 32.9. He wasn’t able to do any of that against the Patriots after being neutralized offensively. Even Todd Gurley had a tough night after finishing the game with 10 carries for 35 yards]]> 5424175 Mon, 04 Feb 2019 0:42:01 EDT Patriots Wire

Gurley out-touched C.J. Anderson in this one, but he did little with his opportunities en route to an average of just 3.5 yards per carry. So ends what was a bizarre postseason for the star back, who excelled against the Cowboys before totaling just 14 carries for 45 yards over the final two weeks. Gurley enjoyed an otherworldly regular season in which he piled up 1,831 scrimmage yards and 21 touchdowns, making him an elite fantasy option heading into the 2019 campaign.
