Despite recent comments by Todd Gurley’s trainer, the Los Angeles Rams should still be concerned over their beloved running back.
Instead, the start of training camp is set to get underway at the end of next month, and it seems like the concerns surrounding Gurley’s knee are growing by the day.
After the Rams took forever to reveal that Gurley was actually dealing with arthritis in his knee to give a better idea of what really was going on in winter, the team does deserve some credit for taking a safe approach this offseason with the former Georgia star.
However, just because Los Angeles is taking the safe approach with their star running back doesn’t necessarily mean it will all work out for Gurley since this situation looks like it will be a concern until he actually proves himself on the field.
Until then, all Rams fans can do is hope for the best with Gurley since each week, there seems to be some sort of new update.
Take a look at this week when Gurley’s personal trainer Travelle Gaines confirmed the news that every football fan already knew in arthritis being the issue at hand, although he seems confident in his client being ready to go by the time Week 1 rolls around.
Due to the knee issue, Los Angeles has already made it clear they will be taking a different approach with Gurley heading into 2019 to put him in better position towards the end of the season to avoid what happened last year.
No player with the type of talent Gurley possess should have been limited to just 10 rushing yards on four carries with a touchdown in the NFC Championship on top of only 35 rushing yards on 10 carries in the Super Bowl, making it easy to see why there was so much frustration.
And while it’s great to see Gurley and his trainer take all of these factors into consideration to make sure the results are different this time around, the concerns are still going to be there.
As previously mentioned, it doesn’t matter what Gurley or his trainer says, because it seems like the only way Rams fans are truly going to feel better will be when the running back is actually on the field.
So while it was great to hear Gaines chime in on the situation with Gurley, are there really any fans who felt better than before when it comes to the knee injury?
