After Thursday night's dismantling of the Minnesota Vikings, the All-Pro running back leads the league with 94 touches this season, putting him on pace to finish the year with a ridiculous total of 376. To put that in perspective, Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner is in a distant second with 69 total touches.
That kind of workload is clearly unsustainable across a full 16-game slate, and as soon as the Rams have nothing left to play for – which will probably be sooner rather than later judging by the way they're playing through Week 4 – Gurley will probably spend the remainder of the year resting on the sidelines.
