Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley II is a special player. However, in their last two games, he was non-existent.

Gurley II has been dealing with a lingering knee injury. Yet, he insists he is fine and not injured at all.

In the loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, he had 10 carries for 35 yards. He was his second straight poor performance, as he had four carries for 10 yards and a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship game.

“I did an MRI after the Philly game (in Week 15),” he said to ESPN’s Lindsey Thiry after the Super Bowl LIII game. “But really, I’m fine. We let each other down.”

While Gurley II says one thing, he did miss the final two games of the regular season with the injury. At that time, his knee was diagnosed as inflammation.

“I kind of had a break low key for the last two months,” he said. “So, it’s cool. We’ll do the physicals and all that stuff tomorrow.”

Gurley also admitted that his injury did not need surgery.

This season, he started 14 games. He had 256 carries for 1,251 yards and a career-best 17 touchdowns. He also had 59 receptions for 580 yards and an additional four touchdowns.

His last good game came in the playoffs against the Dallas Cowboys on Jan. 12 in the NFC Divisional Round. He had 16 carries for 115 yards and a touchdown in the game.
