EARTH CITY, Mo. -- Five games into his NFL career, St. Louis Rams running back Todd Gurley is already in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Well, sort of.

After setting a record for most rushing yards by a player in his first four starts of the Super Bowl era in last week's 27-6 win against the San Francisco 49ers, Gurley's jersey and cleats were shipped to Canton, Ohio, to be added to an exhibit in the Hall of Fame.

Following the team's win, Gurley received multiple requests to swap jerseys with 49ers players but declined in part because he had made some history while wearing it. Among the other accomplishments that Gurley reached while in the jersey and cleats:

  • He became the first rookie in NFL history to rush for 125-plus yards in four consecutive games.

  • His 575 rushing yards are third most in his first five games behind only Adrian Peterson and Eric Dickerson.

Gurley actually visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame over the summer with newly enshrined running back Curtis Martin. Upon his return, Gurley will now get a chance to see his own piece of history.
