Gurley Will Not Play Versus Arkansas

University of Georgia star running back Todd Gurley did not travel with Bulldogs on Friday on their trip to Arkansas for their game on Saturday against the Razorbacks. 

This will mark the second consecutive game that the junior will miss following allegations that he was paid for signing memorabilia. The school decided to suspend the running back on October 9th. 

Gurley's candidacy for the Heisman Trophy has taken a significant hit the past two weeks after starting his season with 773 yards and eight touchdowns in five games. Freshman Nick Chubb is expected to make his second start at running back this week. Last week, Chubb rushed for 143 yards and one touchdown on 38 carries. 

According to the Bulldogs depth chart, the coaching staff also decided to move defensive back J.J green to the backfield this week to add depth. Green's last appearance at running back was in Georgia's 24-19 loss to Nebraska in last year's Gator Bowl. 

The Georgia Bulldogs (5-1, 3-1) take on the Arkansas Razorbacks (3-3, 0-3) on Saturday at 4 PM.
