On Monday, Gurley and former University of Georgia teammate Malcolm Mitchell hosted a reading rally for Tarboro Elementary School students.
Each of the nearly 700 kiddos took home a new backpack with a copy of the book Mitchell wrote and self-published while in college.
Gurley has been surrounded in controversy because of his reduced workload in the playoffs.
Those topics were off-limits to ABC11 during the event. It was reported over the weekend that he may have arthritis in his left knee.
