Rams running back Todd Gurley isn’t expected to participate in many football activities this off-season.  He dealt with knee issues at the end of the season last season that slowed him down in the postseason and made him a nonfactor in the Super Bowl.

With his knee still being a concern, the plan is to limit Gurley’s load during the off-season so he can be ready for all of the regular season and postseason.  So what exactly is the issue with the 24-year-old’s knee?
According to Gurley’s trainer, Travelle Gaines, the running back is dealing with an “arthritic component to his knee” as a result of surgery he had in college, via CBS Sports:

“Everybody knew when Todd came out of Georgia that there would be some kind of arthritic component to his knee, which is part of every surgery whether it’s a shoulder, a knee, an ankle,” Gaines said late last week. “He’s now at the year-five mark, all we’re doing is managing that. If we can pound him less in the offseason while keeping his weight down, working on his strength, working on his agility in short areas, that’s going to give him a better chance to be healthy Weeks 14 through 17 when they really count.”

We shall see if that plan works out for the Rams and Gurley.  The constant downplaying of his injury seems to suggest his knee might be a little worse off than they’re letting on.
