ST. LOUIS — St. Louis Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley met the media on Monday and discussed the toe injury that kept him out of Sunday's season finale as well as his thoughts on his first season in the NFL.
Gurley played in just 13 games this season, missing the first two while rehabbing from the knee injury that ended his junior season at Georgia and then sitting out Sunday's 19-16 overtime loss to the San Francisco 49ers because of a mild turf toe injury.
Still, Gurley put up some impressive numbers in his debut season, making him an offensive rookie of the year candidate and earning him a trip to the Pro Bowl.
Gurley rushed 229 times for 1,106 yards, an average of 4.8 yards per carry, and 10 touchdowns. He also caught 21 passes for 188 yards, giving him 1,294 total yards in 13 games.
He finished third in the NFL in rushing yardage, behind only Adrian Peterson (1,485) and Doug Martin (1,402). He tied for fifth in the league in rushing touchdowns and tied for 16th in total touchdowns.
