Night net null null null null The Rams aren't planning to limit Todd Gurley in Week 1, even though the running back is coming off a knee problem that hampered his performance last season.When asked whether Gurley would be playing a limited number of snaps Sunday against the Panthers, coach Sean McVay simply said: "Nope." After missing last season's final two regular-season games because of inflammation and soreness in his left knee that was later reported to be arthritis, Gurley had a special training schedule during camp. He practiced every other day to ease back into a full workload and didn't play in any preseason games."I'm excited to see Todd Gurley continue to do his thing," McVay added (via the team's official website). "He looks good, he's feeling good and we're looking forward to Sunday." #LARams LIVE
