Richt: Gurley ‘looks more like Gurley’ as he practices his way into shape

So far, so good for Todd Gurley.

There were questions surrounding how much the tailback would be able to do in spring practice after his ankle and hip injuries during the season and missing mat drills during the winter.

Guess what?

Georgia coach Mark Richt said Gurley has done everything so far in practice and told one of his assistant coaches on Saturday that Gurley is working himself into better condition.

“It looks like he’s just feeling more confident, I guess, would be the way to say it,” Richt said. “He’s cutting each direction well. I’m seeing less and less issues that something was wrong somewhere along the way. He looks more like Gurley. He’s not in a tip-top condition like he was starting the season a year ago, yet. But he’s getting there.”

Georgia practiced in “shells” — shoulder pads and helmets — on Saturday, but has yet to go full pads.
