The sophomore RB looks likely to play Saturday.
On Sunday, Georgia coach Mark Richt said Sunday halfback Todd Gurley is "real close" to returning from a sprained left ankle.

This appears to be the case as Gurley, who sat out Monday's practice session, made his long-awaited return to the practice field on Tuesday.
It's official — Todd Gurley is back at practice for the Bulldogs, http://t.co/GCCdVSPLFo— Red and Black (@redandblack) October 15, 2013
Gurley has missed two straight games with a high ankle sprain as the Bulldogs dropped eight spots in the top 25 in his absence. The sophomore hasn't played since the September 28 game against LSU, in which the injury occured. Gurley's return is even more important with the season-ending injury to backup running back Keith Marshall.
