It's been two weeks since the Super Bowl and the mystery surrounding Todd Gurley's strange absence has yet to be cleared up.
All along, the Rams have maintained that Gurley was healthy during the playoffs and attributed his lack of playing time to football reasons — with Gurley saying he simply got out-played by C.J. Anderson in the NFC Championship Game and Sean McVay saying he didn't do a good enough job getting his star running back involved. To no one's surprise, neither of those responses have been considered satisfactory answers to the biggest mystery of the playoffs.
On Tuesday, Anderson provided more support to theory that Gurley was dealing with a knee injury during the playoffs, hence his decreased workload. During an appearance on FS1's "Undisputed," Anderson revealed that when he arrived in Los Angeles, Gurley was more hurt than anyone initially thought, including the Rams and Gurley.
"He was more hurt than what we thought," Anderson said. "The injury was a little bit more than what everybody in the building thought, including himself."
So what was the injury? Anderson described it as a sprained knee, but he couldn't call it that with any kind of certainty.
