The Georgia Bulldogs will likely have their top offensive weapon back in the line up on Saturday for their big game against the Florida Gators, as running back Todd Gurley is on track to return to the offense. Gurley, despite being on the sidelines for the past few weeks, remains the team’s leading rusher.
As long as Gurley continues on his current path, he will be able to start.
From Seth Emerson of The Macon Telegraph and Columbus Ledger-Enquirer:
Mark Richt reiterates that Todd Gurley will play Saturday "unless he has some sort of wild setback."

Gurley has been out of action for three straight weeks, which included two losses for the Bulldogs.
His return will be an obvious boost to the rushing attack.
Gurley has played in just four games this season, but he has been able to rack up 450 yards and four touchdowns.
The Florida Gators defense is strong, so Georgia will need all of the help they can get in order to pull off the win. They hope that Gurley’s return can be exactly what it is they need.
