Saying that the Georgia Bulldogs are hurting on offense at this point would be a colossal understatement. Last week against Tennessee alone, they lost dynamic backup running back Keith Marshall and wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley both for the rest of the season. Wideout Michael Bennett also went down with a potentially serious knee injury. Add all of these to the fact that they’ve already been without top receiving target Malcolm Mitchell for the season, and QB Aaron Murray has to be wondering why some sort of karma is coming back to bite him.
One of the saving graces that the Georgia offense can look forward to is getting their bruising starting running back Todd Gurley back soon to give Murray some help on the offensive side of the ball.
But, according to head coach Mark Richt, that probably won’t be happening this week against Missouri:
Mark Richt just characterized Gurley’s situation as doubtful for Sat against Mizzou

This is big news because the Missouri Tigers are 5-0 as they make the trip to Athens this week to face the ‘Dawgs, who narrowly escaped an upset at the hands of Tennessee last weekend.
