UGA TB Gurley makes his return to practice

Star tailback Todd Gurley returned to practice in a limited capacity for Georgia on Tuesday.

That was more than enough of a glimpse for quarterback Aaron Murray to know exactly what the Bulldogs have been missing.

“Beautiful as always,” Murray said of how Gurley looked in the closed full pads session. “I saw him out there and I was like, ‘Goodness gracious, that dude’s huge.’ He’s a pretty sucker to look at, huge. He looked good.”

Gurley has missed the past three games with an ankle injury sustained against LSU on Sept. 28.

Even so, he still leads Georgia with 450 rushing yards.

“I know I’m excited to have him back and I know the coaches are as well,” tight end Arthur Lynch said. “It can’t come at a better time with the type of physical game that Florida always brings.”

Coach Mark Richt said earlier this week that Gurley has a “pretty good shot” to play against the Gators.

Murray said Gurley did every rep in “run polish” and told him afterwards that he felt good. Lynch said Gurley also worked against the scout team.

“We’ve still got another two weeks, so he’ll be full-go by Florida hopefully,” Murray said of the Bulldogs’ next game on Nov. 2.

Wide receiver Michael Bennett, out the last two games with a knee injury, didn’t practice, but was running on the fields, Murray said.

“I think they’re going to slowly work him back,” Murray said. “Hopefully Monday, Tuesday he’ll be close to full speed, both him and Todd.”

Said Lynch: “He told me last week he’s playing Florida, so I’m taking that to the bank.”
