After much anticipation, No. 10 overall pick Todd Gurley played his first football game since blowing an ACL Nov. 15, 2014.
"I knew I was going to be fine after that," Gurley said of getting hit, via ESPN. "It definitely felt good to just be back out there on the field again."
The Rams predictably kept the rookie's carries to a minimum. Gurley toted the ball just nine times for six yards as St. Louis' offense could get nothing going on the ground or otherwise. Despite the lackluster start to his career, Gurley said he didn't feel rusty. However the back admitted it'll take time before he's back to full speed. We knew it was going to take time and as a result Gurley probably isn't safe for lineups as owners should continue to wait-and-see.
