Murray: Gurley should be 'full go'

Associated Press  |  Last updated October 22, 2013
Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray said Tuesday he believes Todd Gurley will be a "full go" against Florida in two weeks after watching the tailback run plays in practice for the first time since spraining his left ankle. Gurley is the Bulldogs' leading rusher despite missing the last three games. Georgia lost back-to-back games to Missouri and Vanderbilt without Gurley and dropped out of the Top 25. The Bulldogs are off this week before playing Florida on Nov. 2. Georgia listed Gurley as "limited, no contact" in Tuesday's practice. Murray said Gurley looked "beautiful as always." "He looked good," Murray said. "... We've still got another two weeks so he'll be a full go by Florida, hopefully." The Bulldogs have lost their other top tailback, Keith Marshall, and receivers Malcolm Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley to season-ending knee injuries. Another top receiver, Michael Bennett, has missed two games with a knee injury. Gurley wasn't available for interviews on Tuesday. Gurley rushed for 1,385 yards and 17 touchdowns as a freshman in 2012. He has 450 yards rushing and four touchdowns in four games this season. Georgia (4-3, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) needs a healthy Gurley to provide a boost to the depleted offense. Murray had Georgia's only two rushing touchdowns in last week's 31-27 loss at Vanderbilt. Freshmen J.J. Green (shoulder sprain and contusion) and Brendan Douglas (sprained knee and wrist), who have filled in for Gurley and Marshall, were limited by injuries on Tuesday. Murray said Bennett ran on the side Tuesday and hopes to be back next week. "He told me last week he's playing against Florida, so I'm taking that to the bank," tight end Arthur Lynch said of Bennett. Bennett has 14 catches for 176 yards and two touchdowns in five games.
