After the deal with running back Todd Gurley, the Falcons’ depth chart must be updated.
Gurley averaged 3.8 yards per carry and had career lows in carries (223) and yards (857).
Because of a left knee injury, Dr. David J. Chao said that Gurley’s knee must be “managed” and that he’s a “part-time” running back.
“All the success that he’s had, I haven’t seen it change him one bit,” Rams tackle Andrew Whitworth said Friday on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports channel.
Gurley is a good locker room guy.
“The energy this guy brings in the locker room and really to his team with the way he loves to compete, it’s infectious,” Whitworth said. “He’s one of those guys that make you feel good that you’re about to walk on the field with him.”
