Rams head coach Sean McVay said that he expected to see running back Todd Gurley back to his old form after a poor outing in the NFC Championship Game, but things didn’t quite turn out that way.
Gurley didn’t play much in the first half and wound up with 10 carries for 35 yards and one catch for a loss of one yard, which led to another round of questions after the game about whether his knee was bothering him. Gurley missed two games at the end of the regular season with a knee injury, but insisted he was fine after the win over the Saints and said the same in Atlanta after the 13-3 loss to the Patriots.
“I know there’s been a lot of concern about my knee but I really am fine,” Gurley said.

The story said Gurley had an MRI after Week 15 but it didn't turn up anything. Another story from Ian Rapoport said the Rams would like to bring back Anderson next year, so Gurley owners in keeper leagues may want to keep an eye on this situation throughout the offseason.
