It remains to be seen if Georgia star tailback Todd Gurley will be good to go Saturday, but Vanderbilt coach James Franklin said Monday he‚Äôs preparing as if Gurley will return from an ankle injury that kept him out the last two games.
‚ÄúI think he‚Äôs a difference maker for them,‚Äù Franklin said. ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs one of those guys when he‚Äôs playing, they feel like they can beat anybody. When he‚Äôs not in there, it has a factor for him. ‚Ä¶ We‚Äôve still got to stop the same plays whether he‚Äôs in there or not. It‚Äôs just are you dealing with a 235-pound All-SEC running back?‚Äù
Gurley didn‚Äôt practice Monday, coach Mark Richt said his radio show.
‚ÄúI‚Äôd be surprised if he can practice full-speed [Tuesday],‚Äù Richt said. ‚ÄúIt truly is day to day. He‚Äôs getting closer. Can I sit here and say he‚Äôs going to play in the game? I really don‚Äôt know.‚Äù
