“What happens is you feel like your knee — like you have just enough swelling in your knee, just enough, to where it doesn’t stop you from running, but you don’t have the full flexibility or mobility and you just feel like you’re just a second slower,” he said.
“When you think about making a cut, it’s like the signal from your brain to your knee is like, it just comes just a fraction of a second too slow where your knee doesn’t respond to it. And, that’s what was happening for me.”
That said, Davis does see a scenario where Gurley overcomes the doubts.
“If he could come out of this one year and have the attitude that, ‘I want to prove everybody wrong’ — which I feel Todd will — he could have a really good year.”
Will Gurley bounce back with Atlanta in 2020? Time will tell.
