Georgia Bulldogs’ Todd Gurley Day-to-Day with Ankle Injury
Todd Gurley, running back for the Georgia Bulldogs, is day-to-day with his recent ankle sprain according to head coach, Mark Richt (shown in the photograph to the right).
The injury occurred during the second quarter of the game against LSU on Saturday. Gurley rolled his ankle when he was tackled near the sidelines. Gurley was taken out of the game and wasn’t put back in, but the Bulldogs did end up winning the game 44-41.
Head coach Richt added that if Gurley is able to practice, he will be participating in limited practices to give the ankle time to heal.
The Bulldogs are scheduled to play a game against Tennessee next week, and Gurley has not yet been ruled out for playing in that game, so hopefully we will see him back on the field soon. It is important that athletes do not return too soon after an injury, however. Taking time to recuperate and heal properly is vital in keeping your feet and ankles healthy while playing sports.
If Gurley is not able to return, sophomore Keith Marshall may take his place while he is out.
