Seahawks DE Michael Bennett calls Rams RB Todd Gurley ‘average’

Monday December 28th, 2015

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett wasn’t impressed with Rams rookie Todd Gurley’s performance in Seattle’s loss to St. Louis on Sunday.

Gurley carried 19 times for 85 yards and scored a touchdown in the Rams' 23-17 win. He also fumbled once but it was recovered by the Rams. After the game, Bennett said Gurley was “average.”

Gurley, a first-round pick out of Georgia, is third in the NFL in rushing yards per game behind Adrian Peterson and Doug Martin. He missed the first two games of the season while recovering from a torn ACL suffered in November of last year while in college.
