REPORT: Gurley suffered torn ACL in win over Auburn
Todd Gurley's career with the Georgia Bulldogs may be over. And it has nothing to do with NCAA violations.
According to multiple sources, Gurley suffered a torn ACL in his left knee on Saturday as his Bulldogs were beating the Auburn Tigers, 34-7.
Gurley led all rushers with 146 yards on the ground on Saturday, but injured his knee late in the fourth quarter. It was the second injury he sustained during the game. He tweaked his elbow earlier, but wore a brace and powered through the issue.
The mood was somewhat somber in the locker room after the game; definitely too dark for a team that had just thumped a top 10 opponent. But Gurley was sitting on a trainer's table with ice on his knee. A slow procession of teammates spent time with the injured running back, offering what looked like words of encouragement.
Gurley was carted from the locker room in Sanford Stadium for exams on his left knee. An MRI showed a torn ACL, reportedly.
The team is expected to address the media later on Sunday with news of Gurley's condition.
The injury could mean Gurley's career with the Bulldogs is over. He's expected to announce that he will forego his senior season and enter the NFL draft in 2015, but no mention had been made. And now with the injury, if his 2014 season is indeed over, means his exit from Georgia (if he does declare for the draft) will not be on his own terms.
