Georgia's sophomore running back Todd Gurley left Saturday's game against LSU early with a left ankle injury. He returned during halftime wearing a boot and without pads.
Head coach Mark Richt called it a sprained ankle. Gurley totaled 73 yards on eight carries before his injury, which came in the first half when he was dragged to the ground on a run.
An opposing coach -- North Texas' Dan McCartney -- called Gurley a future first-rounder. From The Daily Southerner:
“Todd Gurley is a future first-rounder,” North Texas coach Dan McCarney said. “He is a sensational football player.”
Even without Gurley, the Bulldogs went on to outlast LSU 44-41 in a thrilling SEC shootout.
