Georgia's Richt says Gurley 'real close' to return

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia coach Mark Richt says tailback Todd Gurley is "real close" to returning from a left ankle sprain.

Gurley has missed two straight games, including Saturday's 41-26 loss to Missouri that dropped Georgia eight spots to No. 15 in The Associated Press Top 25.

The loss left Georgia (4-2, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) needing a quick recovery when it plays at Vanderbilt this week. Gurley could help Georgia stay close to the top of the SEC East race, but Richt said Sunday he'll make sure the sophomore is fully recovered from the injury.

Georgia was hurt by four turnovers in its first home loss since 2011.

The Bulldogs have lost their other top tailback, Keith Marshall, and wide receivers Malcolm Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley to season-ending injuries.
