Speculation over Todd Gurley’s left knee injury, which hampered him down the stretch of the 2018 season, does not trouble the back. Since Gurley told reporters Tuesday, he is dealt with much worse before.
“I had bigger problems to be concerned about coming from college,” Gurley said Tuesday at the beginning of Rams mandatory minicamp. “This is small.”

The Rams running back is referencing his injuries while in the University of Georgia by 2012 through 2014. Gurley missed three matches in 2013 with a high ankle sprain and most notably suffered a torn ACL in his left knee, the same one which was bothering him last season, in November 2014.
Gurley chose to forego his senior season and announced for the 2015 draft, but had been feared to fall draft boards due to his durability problems. The Rams ended up picking him with the 10th overall choice as the initial RB off the board. Gurley missed the whole preseason and the first 3 matches of this 2015 regular season prior to making his debut in late September.
The running back did not miss a single game due to injury after that… until Week 16 of this 2018 season.
Considering all that, coping with an allegedly sprained knee or more correctly, reports of an arthritic knee don’t bother Gurley none.
“I Have been hearing things all of my life. Whatever growing up. Hearing comments or anything that is. Each of the stuff don’t really get to me,” Gurley said. “I feel as I really do a great job, got a great supporting cast. … It is football. It is the game I’ve been playing my whole life, so it’s nothing new to me. I know what I’m capable of. I understand what kind of person I am. No big deal to me.”
