Fewer than 48 hours after the team lost to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, the Los Angeles Rams took to their locker room one last time to clear out their belongings.
In the process, a few players spoke to the media about the loss.
One player who did not make an appearance with the media was star running back Todd Gurley. According to Rams insider Omar Ruiz, Gurley declined the opportunity to meet with the media on Tuesday afternoon.
Here’s the report from Ruiz.
According to a team spokesperson, Todd Gurley has declined to meet with the media today during the #LARams final open locker room availability.

It’s an interesting decision from the star running back as many NFL fans and analyst have questions about how he was used in the team’s final three games.
After going over 100 yards in the team’s game against the Dallas Cowboys in the Divisional Round, Gurley received just four carries in the Rams’ win over the New Orleans Saints in the NFC title game.
In the Super Bowl, Gurley touched the ball just 11 times which sparked questions about his health. Gurley dealt with a knee injury that forced him to miss a few games during the last half of the season.
Did the knee injury flare up during the final two playoff games? We won’t hear the answer from Gurley – at least not today.
