Todd Gurley had a puzzling finish to the 2018 NFL season, as the Los Angeles Rams star running back was rarely used in the last couple of playoff games, including the Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots.
The Rams maintained throughout the playoffs that Gurley wasn’t injured, but it appears the team could need to adjust his workload moving forward.
Los Angeles’ GM, Les Snead, addressed this at the NFL Combine this morning.
“Les Snead says Todd Gurley has experienced a fair amount of wear and tear since the ACL at Georgia, that
#rams will have to seriously consider reducing his workload via a Batman/Robin scenario.”

The Rams’ head coach, Sean McVay, said his star running back is “feeling good” and he blames himself for not using him more down the stretch.

McVay added that Gurley does not need any offseason knee surgery. The star running back missed the final two regular season games with what the Rams called “inflammation.”
The Rams’ coaching staff, along with the rest of the NFL, is in Indianapolis this week for the Scouting Combine.
It’s being televised on the NFL Network.
