Georgia has suspended star running back Todd Gurley indefinitely during an ongoing investigation into an alleged violation of NCAA rules, the university announced Thursday.
“I’m obviously very disappointed,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said in a statement. “The important thing for our team is to turn all our attention toward preparation for Missouri.”
Gurley, who leads the Southeastern Conference and ranks sixth nationally with 733 rushing yards, is viewed as one of the leading contenders for the Heisman Trophy. He also is the SEC leader in yards per carry (8.2) and is tied for the league’s touchdown lead with eight. Gurley took the lead Monday in the weekly USA TODAY Sports Heisman Survey for the first time this season.
Gurley is directly responsible for one-third of the yards gained by the Bulldogs this season and 25% of the team’s points.
