Georgia won't go to Tennessee for Saturday's SEC on CBS game at full strength after Mark Richt confirmed to CBS's Tracy Wolfson that leading rusher Todd Gurley is out with a sprained ankle.

Richt told Wolfson it was doubtful Gurley would even warm up in Knoxville. The sophomore sprained his ankle in the first half of Georgia's win over LSU last week and did not return.

Gurley is the Bulldogs' leading rusher with 450 yards, an average of over 112 yards per-game. But Richt and co. should be fine handing over the carries to Keith Marshall, the other half of the "Gurshall" tandem. Marshall rushed for 96 yards in relief of Gurley against the Tigers.

After holding out hope throughout the week that Gurley could play against the Volunteers, Richt has not set a timetable for his return.

The Bulldogs are 13.5-point road favorites for Saturday's contest, which kicks off at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
