Georgia 'preparing to play without' Todd Gurley this weekend

It's starting to look like Georgia will be without running back Todd Gurley again this week. After sounding somewhat optimistic about Gurley's status earlier this week, Georgia coach Mark Richt's glass sounded half-empty on Wednesday.

"We're preparing to play without him," said Richt.

Richt also said that Gurley participated in practice on Wednesday, but "not at a tempo that will make you feel like he’ll have a chance. If we played tomorrow, he wouldn’t be playing tomorrow, I know that.”

Gurley hasn't played since suffering a high-ankle sprain against LSU on September 28, missing Georgia's last two games against Tennessee and Missouri. The Bulldogs needed overtime to overcome Tennessee and lost to Missouri last week without him. Though Gurley is just one of many injuries the Bulldogs are dealing with.

Which would make his return all that much more important for the Georgia offense.

Despite missing the last two games Gurley still leads Georgia in rushing this season with 450 yards and four touchdowns.
