Rams running back Todd Gurley is coming off a torn ACL that cut short his final season at Georgia in November, and the Rams aren’t sure how long it will be until he gets back.
Coach Jeff Fisher said that it’s simply too soon to say whether Gurley will be a participant in training camp practices, or if he’ll still be off to the side rehabbing.
“It’s hard to say right now. I can’t predict that,” Fisher said, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “I know he’s doing well. He had a day off today because he’s doing so well. He’ll rehab with us during the break. . . . We’re just going to see how he progresses. . . . If he’s not PUP-ed, then I think you could probably assume that he’s going to play sooner than you think.”
The Rams used the 10th overall pick in the draft on Gurley because they think he has the talent to be a great running back, but they’re not going to rush him back on the field. Even if that means they don’t have him in uniform for Week One.
