Sports’ Charles Robinson tabbed Gurley to take just 65% of the running back snaps this season.Whether or not Robinson’s figures are accurate, I think we can all anticipate a reduced workload for Gurley this season to ensure less “wear and tear” as the Rams gear up for a playoff run in December and then to hopefully make another run once we get to the postseason.So let’s assume that Gurley will be as healthy for Week 1 of the regular season this year as he was for Week 1 last year. Let’s also assume that the condition of his knee means that it’s more susceptible to aggravation and more likely to delay rehabilitation with each hit. Last year, Gurley aggravated the knee in Week 1, and it was in good enough condition to play the next week (and take 19 carries, FWIW). He aggravated it again in Week 15, and...well Nicholas Scott Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , away we went.So if the Rams want to ensure he’s fresher than recent years by reducing the workload, there’s a question to be asked.When should Gurley see his workload reduced to keep him fresh late in the regular season into the playoffs?Reduced workload earlyThis one wouldn’t make a ton of sense to me, but I suppose there’s an argument to be made about easing him into the season. As I mentioned above, we learned from Gurley himself (albeit in late December) that he had initially aggravated his knee in the season opener against the Oakland Raiders.Given that Gurley’s on reduced training schedule this offseason and won’t even play in the preseason, is it wise to roll him out Week 1 to take a ton of snaps and carries? It’s not as if the Carolina Panthers aren’t aware of Gurley’s condition. That’s not to say they’re going to target the knee or do anything unprofessional, but more that it’s a known issue they’re going to be prepared for. Same for the New Orleans Saints in Week 2 and the Cleveland Browns in Week 3.And given the quality of those three teams, the Rams are going to be challenged out of the gate. They certainly don’t want to start the season off 1-2 and head to Seattle in Week 5 without a winning record, so there’s a delicate balance early on. Perhaps should the Rams build up an early lead against those teams, that might signal an opportunity for Rams Head Coach Sean McVay to pull Gurley.Still, would this be the right time to limit him?Reduced workload in the middle of the seasonI could see the logic here.Play Gurley heavily the first few weeks to put your best foot forward against some tough competition. Then as you get into October, pull back on the reins with the bye week offering additional rest in Week 9 before the schedule gets really tough again in November.That would, though, expose him early in the season coming off the reduced offseason work and late just as the Rams get ready for a playoff push. Consider it was his late season work that re-aggravated the knee. But maybe a midseason rest would allow Darrell Henderson to be eased into his rookie season against some tough competition before taking over heading into the bye week to keep Todd light.Reduced workload lateThe logic here is obvious. Gurley needs to be fresh for the playoffs and last year showed us just how risky it is to play him in December after a season of wear and tear.Should the Rams carry a strong record through November as they did last year Los Angeles Rams Jerseys 2019 , it would be even less worrisome to limit Gurley down the stretch; should, though, the Rams have a record closer to .500, it might be tough to keep him out in games the Rams would need to win to ensure a playoff berth and/or a first-round bye and home field advantage.The other key here is that Henderson will have established himself by this point. He’ll have had plenty of opportunity to get in the groove of his rookie season and will likely have had some plus performances. As opposed to leaning on Hendo early hoping he comes out as a star, waiting until the end of the season to increase his rookie workload could be based more on the results leading up to that point versus forcing him into the limelight to begin his career. Remember that Gurley’s return to the field in the playoffs didn’t exclude C.J. Anderson by any means; instead, the Rams claimed a preference of sorts to “ride the hot hand.” For the Rams to justify that with Henderson means he’ll have to get hot in the first place.Reduced workload throughout the season/sporadicallyI’d think this is the most likely option and the least structured allowing for the most flexibility.That flexibility is probably the driving factor given that Gurley’s availability will be a week-to-week decision making process. So instead of forcing a reduced role through a specific part of the schedule, I wouldn’t be surprised if Gurley gets 16 carries one week, four the next and then 14 in a third game.I mentioned the Week 1 situation from last year. Gurley aggravated the knee, but it felt good by midweek; he took 19 carries the next game. Should Gurley aggravate the knee at any point this season regardless of how it responds over the next week, would the Rams even entertain the idea of giving him 19 carries given everything that’s taken place over the last 12 months? Bear in mind what McVay said heading into Week 17 last year after preemptively shutting Gurley down to end the regular season:For the longevity of his career.That’s what we’re talking about here, ultimately. The need to reduce his workload for the longevity of his career. To reduce his exposure to the kind of damage that threaten the longevity of his career.Todd’s a pro. We know if he can go, he’s going to go. If the coaching staff shuts him down, he’ll likely take it like he did last year. As a professional and a consummate team player.But the bottom line is Gurley is going to have a reduced workload this year. He needs to have as much.But when does that reduction take place? MABANK Nicholas Scott Jersey nfl draft , Texas (AP) — Former two-time All-Pro linebacker Isiah Robertson was killed when the limousine he was driving skidded on a rain-slicked curve on a dark, rural East Texas highway and was hit by two other vehicles.The Texas Department of Public Safety reports the crash happened about 10 p.m. Thursday on Texas Route 198 almost 6 miles (9 kilometers) north of Mabank (MAY’-bank) and 50 miles (80 kilometers) southeast of Dallas. A DPS statement says the limousine Robertson was driving entered the curve at an unsafe speed for the rainy conditions. It veered off the road and skidded sideways before coming to a stop partially on the road. A pickup truck following behind hit the limo, knocking the limo into the southbound lane where it was slammed by an oncoming car.Robertson, a 69-year-old Garland resident, was taken to an Athens hospital 20 miles (32 kilometers) away, where he died. The truck driver was treated for minor injuries and discharged. The other car driver was unhurt.The Los Angeles Rams drafted Robertson from Southern University in the first round of the 1971 NFL draft. He remained with the Rams through 1978, then played in 1979-82 for the Buffalo Bills. He was named first-team All-Pro in 1973 and 1976 and was chosen for the Pro Bowl in his rookie 1971 season, as well as 1973-77.In a statement, the Rams said: “We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our Legends, Isiah Robertson. He will be remembered not only for the great player he was, helping our team achieve multiple division championships in the ’70s, but also by the work he did helping others through the House of Isaiah recovery center he founded in Texas.”
