ReutersTodd Gurley sounds like he’s running on borrowed time.
The Los Angeles Rams’ primary ballcarrier said Tuesday he isn’t certain how his arthritic knee will hold up over the long haul. An “arthritic component” in his knee became problematic in the playoffs last season, when the team attempted to manage his workload on the fly.
“I’m just like, hey, we’re going to find out in training camp, you know? Once training camp comes, you’ve got the preseason, but you don’t have a lot in preseason,” Gurley told NFL Network.
Gurley said the issue won’t cause him to change his playing style. But NFL Network’s Terrell Davis, who retired in his prime because of knee issues, said the joint will eventually wear out. The Rams drafted Darrell Henderson in the third round and matched an offer sheet to retain restricted free agent Malcolm Brown.
“For me, I’ve been doing this my whole life, so it would be so hard for me to even try to change my style of play. That’s not even me,” Gurley said.
