The Saint Louis Rams were desperate to land their running back of the future in the 2015 NFL
Draft, and they got their man when Todd Gurley was still available at the 10th overall spot.
Unfortunately for the Rams, however, Gurley was coming into the League off the back of an ACL injury that required major surgery and months of rehabilitation.
At one point, it seemed like the former Georgia Bulldogs star might miss a large chunk of his rookie season, but St. Louis' newest star could be in action as soon as this weekend.

At a press conference early on Tuesday, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher revealed that Gurley could be playing this week.
“Yeah, there’s always that possibility,” Fisher told reporters in attendance. “I ruled him out in the preseason and ruled him out last week. I’m not ruling him out right now.
No Final Decision
Fisher went on to say that he will get his final bit of info on Friday from the team's medical personnel, before making his final decision on the star back.
“We’ll see how he does, but this is a medical decision, a trainer’s decision, a collective decision. But we’ll see how he does this week.”
Fisher added that Gurley got some reps with the first-string offense in practice on Tuesday, and that the plan is to give him more. The head coach also has no worries about Gurley’s ability to do what he needs to do.
“I’m not concerned about him knowing what to do, whatsoever,” Fisher said of Gurley. “He knows what to do.”
