Gurley dealing with arthritis in knee

Todd Gurley was a workhouse for the Los Angeles Rams over the course of the 2018 National Football League regular season, but the same can't be said for the playoffs. Gurley finished with 10 attempts for just 35 yards and one catch for a loss of one yard in the loss.

The 24-year-old running back is dealing with arthritis in his knee, according to The Athletic, which cited unidentified sources. Gurley missed the Rams' last two regular-season games but then returned for a solid performance in the divisional round game against Dallas, which was followed by two limited games in both the NFC Championship and Super Bowl LIII.

Gurley told reporters after the game that his knee was fine.

In apparent first, North Korea's Kim responds to question from foreign media
The response marked the first time the 35-year-old dictator has ever been known to reply to a question from a foreign journalist. Kim said they had overcome obstacles to meet a second time and praised Trump for his "courageous decision" to begin a dialogue.

The Rams had issued no comment as of Saturday late afternoon on what treatment he might undergo moving forward. McVay, per Yahoo! Sports, revealed at the Combine that the 24-year-old will not require surgery this offseason and that stem cell treatment now isn't being considered.

Los Angeles signed Gurley to a four-year, $60 million contract extension this past July with $45 million guaranteed. McVay explained after the 13-3 loss that they had planned to split carries between Gurley and running back C.J. Anderson, rather than placing any blame on Gurley's knee after he proved to be ineffective.
