Georgia star RB Gurley suspended indefinitely
ATHENS, GA - Georgia star tailback Todd Gurley has been suspended indefinitely while the school investigates an alleged violation of NCAA rules.
The school made the announcement Thursday, two days before the No. 13 Bulldogs (4-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) face No. 23 Missouri (4-1, 1-0) in a crucial Eastern Division game.
Georgia officials did not reveal the alleged violation.
Coach Mark Richt says he is "very disappointed" by the suspension. He added that "the important thing for our team is to turn all our attention toward preparation for Missouri."
Gurley is considered one of the leading contenders for the Heisman Trophy. He leads Georgia with 773 yards rushing and eight touchdowns. In addition, he has 11 receptions and a 100-yard kickoff return for a TD.
