Excellent news

However, news coming out of the Gurley camp on Sunday has provided a huge boost for the running back and for the teams looking to originally take him the first round of the draft.

"According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Gurley’s knee checked out fine and there’s optimism that he’ll be good to go in time for training camp."
