Gurley practices, but Lynch questionable for Saturday

ATHENS - Todd Gurley was able to practice on Monday, with his conditioning remaining a bigger factor than his ankle.

Georgia's star tailback was not on Georgia's official injury report, and is on track to play a second straight game, after missing three with a sprained ankle. Gurley touched the ball 20 times in the win over Florida, though missed a big chunk of it because he was gassed.

"Just watching the film, Todd was gutting it out," head coach Mark Richt said on his radio show on Monday night.

But there were other players on the injury list, notably Arthur Lynch. The senior tight end is questionable for Saturday's game against Appalachian State with a bruised rib cage, Richt said. Lynch returned to the game after taking a shot to his ribs, but the team is taking it slow with him this week.

The Bulldogs are also planning to be without receiver Chris Conley for a second straight game, because of a sprained ankle. Richt, speaking on his radio show, termed Conley a "very doubtful" for Saturday's game, with an eye on perhaps playing the following week.

"I hope he would be able to play against Auburn," Richt said. "But even that would be hard to say right now."

Freshman safety Tray Matthews, who was available but did not play against Florida because of his hamstring, should be a full-go this Saturday, Richt said.
