It appears the Los Angeles Rams are bringing Todd Gurley along slowly, as head coach Sean McVay said the running back has yet to participate in on-field team drills during organized team activities.

Despite his limitations on the field, McVay noted that Gurley has been a consistent participant in the team's offseason program, according to NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano.

"We've got him on a great plan," the head coach said Tuesday.

Gurley's role in Los Angeles' offense dwindled during the playoffs as he dealt with arthritis in his knee. McVay, however, has been adamant that the star ball-carrier's workload won't be limited to start the 2019 season.

The 24-year-old averaged 58 snaps per game during the regular season but his usage dropped to 39 per contest in the playoffs as he split duties with C.J. Anderson. He finished the campaign with 1,251 rushing yards, 580 receiving yards, and 21 touchdowns.
