Georgia loses Todd Gurley to torn ACL

67

Georgia tailback Todd Gurley’s season has ended with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The school announced the injury Sunday.

Gurley, a junior, ran for 138 yards and a touchdown in Georgia’s 34-7 win against then-No. 9 Auburn on Saturday night. He was injured with just more than 5 minutes remaining on a 6-yard run.

Gurley was considered a leading Heisman Trophy candidate before receiving a four-game NCAA suspension for taking $3,000 for autographed memorabilia and other items during the past two years.

Saturday’s game was his first back.

The loss of Gurley leaves Nick Chubb as No. 9 Georgia’s top running back for the rest of the season. The Bulldogs play Charleston Southern this week before closing its regular season against Georgia Tech.
