Todd Gurley's personal trainer, Travelle Gaines, recently confirmed that arthritis is at play in the RB's bothersome knee. Gaines told CBS Sports: “Everybody knew when Todd came out of Georgia that there would be some kind of arthritic component to his knee, which is part of every surgery whether it’s a shoulder, a knee, an ankle. He’s now at the year-five mark, all we’re doing is managing that. If we can pound him less in the offseason while keeping his weight down, working on his strength, working on his agility in short areas, that’s going to give him a better chance to be healthy Weeks 14 through 17 when they really count.” Gaines said he's trying to help Gurley shed 6 pounds and get down from 10% body fat to 7%. He says it's to help Gurley's quickness and not out of a need to relieve stress on the knee. Of course, Gaines isn't on L.A.'s coaching staff and wouldn't necessarily know the team's plan for its star RB. Gaines' confirmation of an earlier report arthritis report also doesn't necessarily hurt or help Gurley's 2019 fantasy outlook. We're still waiting to see how he looks this summer and how the Rams plan to deploy him.
