Los Angeles Rams wide receiver is “100 percent” ready and is expected to play a big role when his team challenges the New England Patriots for Super Bowl LIII.
Speaking to reporters, Coach Sean McVay played down concerns that Gurley’s injury in regular season may have prevented him for the big game on Sunday.
“He’s feeling good,” the coach said. “A hundred percent.”
Gurley was left sidelined during the last two games of the regular season after he suffered an inflammation in his left knee. He came back in the game against the Dallas Cowboys and rushed for 115 yards and a touchdown.
During that game, however, the wide receiver played for only 32 snaps, leaving many to feel concerned for his injury. Speaking about Gurley’s limited time in that game, McVay said,
“He didn’t have that many touches, but he still played a good amount of snaps. We just weren’t able to run it as much as we’d like to, because New Orleans did a nice job stopping us.”
With Gurley fit, the Rams have an entirely ready squad for the Super Bowl. Kicker Greg Zuerlein was the only other player listed as limited besides Gurley but he’s already recovered and will be prepared for the game.
