Todd Gurley has been down this road before. The former Georgia Bulldog tore his ACL while in Athens and went on to become one of the most talented running backs in the National Football League. So when you hear that he’s struggling with another knee injury it’s concerning but not the end of the world for Gurley.
Yeah the Rams selected Darrell Henderson in the third round of the NFL Draft but he’s nowhere near the prospect Gurley was back in 2015. And when you take into consideration that Gurley is an unbelievable competitor. It just makes sense that he would defy the odds again and become the player he once was. Now Gurley is facing an uphill battle and he might not get on track in 2019. You have to remember he’s still sitting out of OTAs and that’s not a good sign with training camp right around the corner. Which means Henderson will have a chance to steal the show this season. If that happens then Todd Gurley could be expendable. Los Angeles may want to go with the cheaper and younger player but at some point Gurley’s knee will heal. Meaning that when he does return to top form it’s very possible that he could be playing for a different team. Who knows what the future holds and it’s hard to predict what’s going to happen down the line? However placing a bet on Gurley and his athletic potential is never a bad option. Saying this setback will limit the rest of his career is a tough sell and at some point there will be a breakthrough. Science and medicine are better than ever these days and Gurley can afford some of the best treatment on earth. It’s only a matter of time until he’s carving people up on the field again.
