You guys need to have your own talk. I’m not censoring Clarence based on anyone else ever. That’s not my job. I stopped saying much on the boards for a similar reason and I’m tired of that shxt personally. I won’t be held responsible for any other poster ever again.

I'm just saying this because of before we talked about how you carry weight and people follow/copy you man but take it to the extreme hoping you'll see

Alright bro cool

Like I said. That’s a personal deal between the two of you. To me, stopping being me because of another man is bytch made and I won’t be doing it anymore. Based on this crap alone I went ghost nearly a year just for you. So I’m hoping YOU will see that it works in multiple ways. Especially when the kid you see as your god son or nephew is involved.

Doctor explains what arthritis would mean for Todd Gurley's longevity

There’s plenty of uncertainty surrounding Todd Gurley’s knee with the latest report suggesting he has arthritis in his surgically repaired knee. Needless to say, that would be terrible news if true, because of the inability to “cure” the condition.

Arthritis is common in knees with previously torn ACLs, which is what Gurley had while at Georgia. Aside from the first few games of his career and the last two games of 2018, Gurley has never missed a game due to injury in the NFL. He’s one of the most durable running backs around, touching the ball more than anyone in the league since 2015.

Yet, that could very well change moving forward if he has arthritis. Vincent Bonsignore of The Athletic spoke to Dr. Jesse Morse, who works at Florida Orthopedic Specialists. Morse hasn’t looked at Gurley’s knee and isn’t a team doctor, but he’s someone who specializes in “musculoskeletal injuries, arthritis, fractures, concussions, musculoskeletal-ultrasound and injections.”

He believes Gurley’s best years are behind him.

“Without personally examining him, my answers will obviously be very generalized, but unfortunately I believe Gurley has peaked and will not be able to repeat his record-breaking effectiveness,” Dr. Morse said. “He could possibly have one to two more years of elite top-five running back talent, but he will likely lose a step.”

Gurley is in a better situation than the average person with arthritis, having access to some of the best treatment options out there. Morse says that definitely helps the situation and could help “prevent a rapid decline for a Gurley-type talent, especially with as much money as they have invested in him.”

Morse adds that he doesn’t think the Rams will be able to keep up his current workload, likely needing to reduce it in order to prolong his career and effectiveness. After signing Gurley to a $57.5 million contract last offseason, limiting his touches is the last thing the Rams want to do.

Gurley is signed through 2023 and while he can still be effective in the NFL, there’s no telling whether he’ll continue to be someone who can carry an offense the way he has.

“Can he reverse his arthritis? No,” Dr. Morse said. “Can he use different treatment modalities to prevent the progression of osteoarthritis? Yes. Such things as glucosamine/chondroitin, physical therapy, appropriate weight loss and PRP/stem cell injections have all been proven to be effective in this nature.”

The Rams have yet to confirm or comment on whether Gurley does have arthritis in his knee, but Les Snead and Sean McVay both said at the combine last week that he has dealt with wear and tear due to a huge number of touches the last two years.

All day. Smith sucks. Sorry folks... but he does. 

I don’t know that I would say he sucks... but he does have a hard time staying on the field (not that Gurley is exempt from that) and he’s not a special talent. 
 

If you sign Gurley you have to know you’re taking a gamble on his knee holding up 2-3 years along with his desire to play while hurt.

I think that they will do a thorough medical eval and if he checks out then so be it. I think TD will have done his homework if we offer Todd a contract. 

I would rather draft Johnathan Taylor, if possible.

I’d sign him 1 year prove it and tie it up in incentives low if little guaranteed money and really see if his hearts in it.

If he can put money aside and get healthy and ball then you look at extending.

If he’s looking for multi year guaranteed money type deal it’s moving right along thanks.

Regardless of whether he sucks or not, his concussion history is very concerning, just like Gurley's knee. I'd rather roll with a three man backfield of Ollison, Smith, and Hill than draft an RB in the first round or sign Gurley. 

Grab BPA at 16 out of CB, LB, DL, or OG.

I would certainly take my chances. Not an Ito fan.
