Gurley's anti-Boston t-shirt makes sense considering the success Boston has had over Los Angeles lately. Of course, there was Super Bowl 53, where the Patriots held a potent Rams offense to three points and a measly 4.3 yards per play. Gurley was battling a knee ailment but only managed 35 rushing yards on 10 carries despite insisting before the game that his knee was healthy

The Super Bowl was an incredible letdown for Gurley after a spectacular statistical 2018 campaign. He amassed 1,251 rushing yards and 580 receiving yards and led the league in total touchdowns with 21. 

Then there was the World Series, where the Red Sox dispatched the Dodgers in five games, with LA's only win coming in the 18-inning marathon that was Game 3. 

Perhaps Gurley and the Rams will rebound this season with hopes of meeting the Patriots in the Super Bowl again. But until then, the Rams' association with Boston won't be a pleasant one for them.

NFL Rumors: Rams mulling stem cell treatment for Todd Gurley's knee

NFL Rumors: Rams mulling stem cell treatment for Todd Gurley's knee

Both the Los Angeles Rams and Todd Gurley insisted his knee was healthy entering Super Bowl LIII.

All signs since then suggest that status changed during the game against the New England Patriots -- or simply wasn't true to begin with.

The latest clue offers the clearest evidence: The Rams may consider giving Gurley stem cell treatment on his left knee if his health regresses this offseason, CBS Sports' John Breech reported Friday, citing a team source.

Stem cell treatment would be a drastic option for Gurley, as the previous NFL running backs to undergo such treatment -- Jamaal Charles and Knowshon Moreno among them -- were recovering from ACL tears.

Rams coach Sean McVay didn't confirm that stem cell treatment is on the table for Gurley but admitted his medical staff is looking at "new methods" of treatment.

That Gurley's knee is a chief concern for L.A.'s medical staff seems to confirm C.J. Anderson's insistence in mid-February that Gurley was "more hurt than we thought" in the Rams' 13-3 loss to the Patriots.

The All-Pro running back had just 10 carries for 35 yards in Super Bowl LIII after rushing for 1,251 yards and 17 touchdowns during the regular season.

Gurley did miss the final two games of the 2018 regular season with "knee inflammation," prompting the Rams to add Anderson as insurance.

The 24-year-old wasn't listed on the injury report entering Super Bowl LIII, but it seems quite clear now he was nowhere near 100 percent in that contest.
