Whatever is going on with Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley, expect him to have a solid game in the Super Bowl, and maybe address a possible knee issue this offseason.

Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has spent a good amount of time since the NFC Championship Game answering questions about a possible knee injury. I bring this up as it remains a reasonable topic of concern, even to the aggravation of fans.

Odds are, while Gurley may not have an “injury” what’s more likely as many have alluded to, is something that one would be hampered by had they suffered an ACL injury.

Gurley did while at Georgia.

Fans and the media will know a lot more come post Super Bowl news, and especially if Gurley has any kind of procedure during the offseason.

Anyone of a reasonable mind will note that the 2017 Offensive Player Of The Year didn’t look right against the New Orleans Saints. For fans who want to stick their heads in the sand, it’s hard to ignore the game against the Dallas Cowboys where Gurley rushes for 115 yards on 16 carries, then a mere week later, only have four carries for 10 yards.

Fans are fans, so I get that. That said, the remarkable absence of performance is a serious head-scratcher.

How Gurley runs will be an interesting watch. I think, like a lot do, that an extra week of rest will only help him and ultimately help the Rams. The luxury of having running back C.J. Anderson also provides some options. Los Angeles, who has come to rely on Anderson and his contrasting running style, will find him of extra value when Sean McVay looks to spell Gurley.

Few doubt that the New England Patriots will focus on the Rams running game, meaning Gurley will get perhaps the biggest test of the season and his career. Healthy or not, don’t be surprised to know early on if New Orleans was just a bad game, or something more.
