Gurley was suspended indefinitely last Thursday and missed the Bulldogs’ win
at Missouri while the school conducts an investigation into a potential NCAA
Richt said via Twitter on Thursday that “we will let you know if his status
changes. Not anticipating it to change this week.”

indicated it to revolve around Gurley possibly being paid for signing
autographs and memorabilia.
