ESPN reported that the NCAA mandated suspension for Georgia RB Todd Gurley has ended, making the star RB available to play in the Bulldogs next game.
Gurley was once considered a Heisman trophy candidate after rushing for 773 yards and 8 TDs in the first 5 games. The star RB was suspended for taking $3,000 for autographed memorabilia and other items over two years. Georgia was 3-1 without Gurley, losing to Florida two weeks ago.
The issue now is whether or not the Bulldogs decide to go back to Gurley as the starter after several successful weeks for backup RB Nick Chubb. Georgia head coach Mark Richt told ESPN he hasn’t decided on a starter yet:
“We haven’t even talked about that yet,” Richt said. “Obviously, both those guys will play and we’ll see how Sony is doing. I think he came out of the game pretty good, too. I wouldn’t be surprised to see more than just Nick and Todd in the ballgame at that running back position. Early in the year we did a good job of giving guys reps and hopefully we can continue to do that.”
