ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia tailback Todd Gurley, who needed a break last week to make it through his return from an ankle injury, is expected to play against Appalachian State on Saturday.
Coach Mark Richt said Tuesday he has no thoughts of holding out Gurley to protect the tailback's status for Southeastern Conference games against Auburn and Kentucky the next two weeks.
After missing three games with a left ankle sprain, Gurley ran for 100 yards with a touchdown and added a 73-yard touchdown reception in the Bulldogs' 23-20 win over Florida last week.
Gurley was nauseated and spent time in the locker room in the first half and was limping after the game, but he practiced Monday and Tuesday. Richt says "We expect him to be healthy."
