Todd Gurley ‘day-to-day’ with sprained ankle

Whether or not Georgia has one of the top running backs in the country at its disposal this weekend remains to be seen.

Todd Gurley suffered a sprained ankle in the second quarter of the Bulldogs’ win over LSU Saturday.  He did not return to the game, and was seen wearing a walking boot on the sidelines.

Updating Gurley’s status Sunday, head coach Mark Richt said the sophomore is “day-to-day” with the injury.  Surgery of any kind has been ruled out, but his status for this weekend’s road trip to Tennessee won’t be determined until later on in the week.

“No surgery, nothing like that. Just gotta let it get as much treatment as you can, and get ready as soon as you can,” Richt said according to the Macon Telegraph.

Despite missing more than half of the last game, Gurley is No. 19 in the country and No. 3 in the SEC in rushing yards per game with 112.5.

If Gurley is unable to go Saturday, UGA would again turn to fellow sophomore Keith Marshall to handle a sizable chunk of the running game load.  Filling in for Gurley against the Tigers, Marshall rushed for a season-high 96 yards on 20 carries.  The 20 carries were a career-high, surpassing the 16 he had in the season opener against Clemson.

    “Surgery of any kind has been ruled out, but his status for this weekend’s road trip to Tennessee won’t be determined until later on in the week.”

    Well seeing how Murray is now #3 on the Heisman list and they’re playing the Vols, might be smart to keep him out this weekend and see how they do without him…

    UGA will miss number 3 a little, but luckily, they are playing Tenn. do Marshall and Green should still have goof=d success against them. UGA’s offensive line is capable of making some big holes in Tenn.,s DL, so unless he is 100%, I would bet Coach Richt will give him a week more to heal the ankle. He also tweaked it against S.C., and he surely doesn’t want to have a nagging recurring problem with it all year. Let the trainers work with him and get him 100% healthy, now that the load is a little lighter as far as opponents go.

    I wouldn’t be horribly disappointed if he mised The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party in Jacksonville :)

    Seriously, this kid is awesome. I love watching him play. I hope he recovers 100% and is back on the field quickly, even if he does run all over my team.

    I think unless he is 100%, UGA will rest him this week. It is a long season and I am pretty sure that with Marshall, and the other two, they can run pretty well against Tenn. Let number 3 rest it this week, and he will be chomping at the bit, to get going the following week.
