Gurley says limited role vs. Saints was due to performance, not injury
Gurley, who added that he’s healthy after a late-season knee injury, received just four carries, gaining only 10 yards on the ground. However, he did score a rushing touchdown late in the first half that brought the Rams back into the game. He caught one of three targets for a three-yard gain.
The two-time All-Pro led the league with 17 regular-season rushing scores, but he played less than half of his team’s offensive snaps on Sunday while Anderson piled up 44 yards on 16 carries.
The 24-year-old missed the final two games of the regular season due to inflammation in his left knee. He then returned to rack up 115 yards and a touchdown in last Saturday’s divisional-round victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
