ATHENS — The University of Georgia football team will continue to have to “make do” with Nick Chubb at tailback. Todd Gurley will miss 2 more games.
That means the Georgia tailback and one-time Heisman Trophy favorite will not be eligible until Georgia plays Auburn on November 15th, missing games against Florida and Kentucky.
The NCAA has ruled Gurley must sit out 4 games for accepting more than $3,000 in cash for autographed memorabilia. Gurley has already sat out 2 games through Georgia’s own suspension, but now he has learned he will have to sit for 2 more.
The following is from Georgia’s Media Release:
Todd Gurley, University of Georgia football student-athlete, must sit a total of four games, or 30 percent of the season, for accepting more than $3,000 in cash from multiple individuals for autographed memorabilia and other items over two years. Gurley, who acknowledged violating NCAA rules, must repay a portion of the money received to a charity of his choice and complete 40 hours of community service as additional conditions for his reinstatement. Gurley will be eligible to play on Nov. 15.
