Todd Gurley is lining up for the St Louis Rams against the Cleveland Browns today in his first NFL game without a knee brace – and he looks in incredible running form.
The running back has been playing with the brace since making his debut in the league at the end of September.
But he’s in action with it today:
Just as Todd Gurley recently ditched knee brace at practice, he is doing same for first time in NFL game today. No brace, Browns D, big day.

He failed to get a touchdown in three games against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers.
And the former Georgia Tech star hasn’t found the end zone so far today – but he looks extremely capable based on this run from the first quarter at the Edward Jones Dome:

It’s no wonder Gurley was actually a world-class hurdler in his college days.
The running back – picked 10th overall in this year’s draft – ran at the 2011 World Youth Championships in the 110-metre hurdles.
He failed to pick up a medal, but did run a personal best of 13.66 seconds.
