McVay: Rams RB Todd Gurley's lack of use due to game flow

During the game, Fox said the Rams told the network there was “nothing physically wrong” with Todd Gurley. Fox asked because everyone was stunned that Gurley was sitting. Gurley had two big drops early, one that led to a Saints interception, but he’s still one of the Rams’ best players.

Sean McVay continued to say after the game that Anderson’s usage, and Gurley’s lack of snaps, was simply a coaching decision.

“It was a flow for the game,” McVay said.

The story said Gurley played on 32 plays and Anderson 35, but it was Anderson who had 17 touches to Gurley's give. Gurley had a couple of drops but the switch to Anderson appeared to come before his second drop, according to reports. The most logical reason would be Gurley is just not 100-percent from his late-season knee injury. He'll have two weeks to get ready for the Super Bowl.
