Matt Ryan has been pleased with what he's seen from Gurley during private workouts in California over recent weeks, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
While the veteran running back has not yet been able to take his physical because of the Falcons' team facility remaining closed to players, he seems confident concerning the status of his surgically reconstructed left ACL. Amidst workouts with Ryan in Huntington Beach, CA, Gurley has steadily drawn praise from his new quarterback. "I've gotten to work with Todd and he's awesome," Ryan told ESPN. "I was really impressed with his ability to retain information. You don't have to tell him twice. He's on it." Gurley's success in 2020 hinges on how well his body continues to hold up against the physical demands of the RB position, but early indications are positive as he builds camaraderie with Ryan.
