But if his debut does come this weekend, some of Gurley's collegiate opponents want to make sure Pittsburgh is ready. They've seen the legend first-hand.
Added Jarvis Jones, a former Gurley teammate: "He's a great player, great kid. He's like my little brother. He's very smart, loves the game of football. He plays tremendously hard. He's a very good running back. I'm just happy he's healthy now and he has a chance to fulfill his dream."
"He's a very powerful back, runs downhill," McCullers said. "You have to wrap up and make sure you get him to the ground. He will break tackles and keep going."
Though it seems unlikely given that St. Louis will probably ease him in and protect their investment, they need to do something in order to change the fact that wideout Tavon Austin is their leading rusher. This is supposed to be a team built around power and clock control.
