Gurley's Back! Sort of...

Marc Weiszer of the Banner-Herald provides us with a brief yet thorough update from the trauma ward that is Georgia football this season. Looks like Todd Gurley is giving it a go at practice, albeit in a non-practice jersey. Will he be ready to face the belly sliders next weekend in Jacksonville? I sure hope so. Also of note, it seems that Michael Bennett is progressing nicely and might even be ready for the Cocktail Party. Tray Matthews was running alongside Bennett at practice today, so there's something to be a little optimistic about, as well. Here's where things get ugly: J.J. Green and Brendan Douglas, you know, the only scholarship tailbacks we have (other than A.J. Turman, who looks to be redshirting this season) behind the injured Gurley and Keith Marshall, were both in non-contact jerseys at this afternoon's practice. Green is bothered by a shoulder sprain while Douglas's problems are leg-related (sprained knee and wrist). If these young men are still hampered by their respective injuries come next Saturday, we might as well all report to Jacksonville and try our hands at running the rock for Georgia. Just as ugly is the situation on the receivers' side where Chris Conley, pretty much the last reliable pair of hands the Dawgs had left before he went down with an ankle injury on the last play of the "game" last weekend, was not even seen at practice, a likely sign that we will not see him on the field anytime soon. To top that off, former walk-on Rhett McGowan was sporting a non-contact jersey with an ankle injury. Y'all, the injury situation at Georgia was scary the second Gurley went down against LSU. It became crippling after the win at Tennessee. It might have just been pushed to post-apocalyptic. I like to think of this season as the Georgia football equivalent of the Book of Job. We've lost some livestock and our season is covered in boils. But Job kept the faith and I am, too. 2014 is gonna be our year! Please join me in wishing these young men a speedy recovery. Oh, and Florida sucks. Go Dawgs!
