The Georgia Bulldogs were sitting pretty Saturday night. Star running back Todd Gurley had finally returned from a four game suspension over taking money for autographs, the team was throttling a talented Auburn squad and clinching the SEC East was within their grasp. Then, in the final minutes of the fourth quarter, Gurley injured his left knee on a non-contact play.

Gurley walked off to the locker room under his own power, and those covering the game seem cautiously optimistic, but what a cruel blow losing Gurley, again, for any amount of time, would be to the Bulldogs.
