Richt: "I Have No Idea"

ATHENS - A tired-sounding Mark Richt took calls from the media on Sunday night, but he didn’t shed any light into Todd Gurley’s situation.

“I have no idea,” Richt said when asked about if he expected to to get Todd Gurley back. “I do not know anything. My answer is that I do not know. Todd is still on our team, yes.”

Richt indicated that Gurley would practice this week with the Bulldogs.

Gurley was indefinitely suspended on Thursday by No. 10 Georgia, and speculation of his future in Athens has ranged the gamut in the days following. Like Richt, Georgia officials have been tight-lipped about the situation with Gurley and have given on indication on if or when they will get a ruling from the NCAA about if or when Gurley can return to the field.

“We didn’t really change the plan much,” Richt said of Gurley being out.

Freshman Nick Chubb step in for Gurley and got 38 carries during Georgia’s win over No. 23 Missouri on Saturday.

“I am not sure how sore Nick is,” Richt said. “He didn’t look fatigued as the game went on. I am sure there were moments he was tired and sore. It was a physical game for him. He earned every bit of what he got.”

The 38 carries is the most for a running back at Georgia (5-1, 3-1) in more than ten years. Richt said he was hopeful to get backup running back Keith Marshall back for this week’s game at Arkansas.

“I really hope Keith is able to play,” Richt said. “Watching him run straight ahead in practice last week he looked really good. But it wasn’t quick-cutting motions, so I really don’t know.”

The Bulldogs will travel across the South for the second consecutive week - this time playing in Little Rock, the Hogs’ home away from home.

“Arkansas is a physical bunch of player. They are playing well,” he said.

The Razorbacks fell to No. 6 Alabama 14-13 on Saturday night.
