Todd Gurley does not travel for game against Missouri


The news that Georgia Bulldogs running back Todd Gurley has been suspended indefinitely hit the Bulldog Nation quite hard on Thursday afternoon, but a portion of the fan base was taking the positive approach, insisting that Gurley could potentially play on Saturday in Columbia. On Friday morning, that possibility took a large hit, as Gurley will reportedly be staying in Athens in favor of traveling with the team to Missouri.

It should not come as a huge surprise to see Gurley left off the travel roster, but because of recent precedent surrounding both Cam Newton and Johnny Manziel, there was a glimmer of hope. Still, the situation surrounding the Heisman Trophy front-runner is murky at best, and until there are more details released by a program that is notoriously tight-lipped, we basically have to assume that Gurley will be on the shelf for a while.

Without Todd Gurley in the lineup, defeating the Missouri Tigers could be a very tall task for Mark Richt and company, but fortunately for UGA, they are blessed with the multi-talented Nick Chubb and the ultra-reliable Brendan Douglas as viable options to replace him in the short term.
