Todd Gurley does not feel he needs to prove anything over knee doubts
Todd Gurley is facing some questions entering the 2019 NFL season relating to his knee. Despite those questions, the Los Angeles Rams running back does not feel like he has anything to prove.
In an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio Tuesday, Gurley was asked if he believes he can prove the doubters wrong this year the same way he did when he was coming off knee surgery in college. He essentially said he doesn’t believe there is any need to.

“I don’t have anything to prove,” Gurley told Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt. “I’ve been doing this my whole life. It’s like the same stuff for me over and over and I keep doing the same old thing and just play my game, honestly. I just try to be as good of a teammate as a I can and just try to help my team, honestly.”
Aside from a couple of big games down the stretch, Gurley seemed to wear down as the season went on last year. He was essentially a non-factor in the Super Bowl, and Rams coach Sean McVay has acknowledged that the team needs to do a better job of managing the 24-year-old’s workload. That is probably a big reason why Los Angeles used a third-round draft pick on former Memphis star Darrell Henderson.
Gurley’s trainer recently shared some info about the running back’s knee that might cause concern among fans, but Gurley does not seem worried.
