On a rough night for the entire Los Angeles Rams offense, running back Todd Gurley was especially limited. The Pro Bowl back finished Super Bowl LIII with 10 carries for 35 yards and one catch for negative yards.
After the Super Bowl, Gurley spoke out about his disappointing performance and what exactly happened in the game.
Per ESPN, Gurley did not seem concerned with his lack of carries, citing the “team sport” nature of the game.
“It’s cool, man,” Gurley said after the game. “It’s a team sport. There’s 11 people on the field. Everyone can’t touch the ball.”
Gurley was also asked about his knee injury, which had been healing since the end of the regular season and has been widely viewed as the mean reason he has been so limited in the past month.
He stated that he was fine and ready to play, downplaying any injury concerns.
“I felt good,” Gurley said. “Whenever my name is called to get in, I’m ready.”
Meanwhile, Rams head coach Sean McVay appeared to lament not giving his star running back more carries.
“There was some different situations, you could always look back, certainly that is going to be something I’m sure I’ll say, ‘I wish I could have got him more involved,'” McVay said.
It was an incredibly disappointing performance for the Rams, who finished with just three points – tied for the fewest points ever scored by a team in Super Bowl history.
Rams quarterback Jared Goff completed just 50-percent of his passes with an interception.
Meanwhile, Rams backup running back C.J. Anderson was only slightly less effective than Gurley with seven carries for 22 yards and a 3.1 yards per carry average.
