Todd Gurley has missed Georgia's last two games while being investigated for allegedly signing autographs for money.
Athens, GA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Georgia running back Todd Gurley will begin the process of seeking reinstatement after his indefinite suspension for an alleged violation of NCAA rules.
Gurley has missed Georgia's last two games, both victories, while the school conducted an investigation. The ninth-ranked Bulldogs are idle this week and will next play on Nov. 1 against Florida.
The junior has been suspended since Oct. 9 and offered an apology through the school on Wednesday.
"I want to thank the university, coaches, teammates and the Bulldog Nation for their patience and support," said Gurley. "I take full responsibility for the mistakes I made, and I can't thank the university, my coaches and teammates enough for supporting me throughout this process. I'm looking forward to getting back on the field with my teammates."

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
While most of the favorites are well established as the season pushes past the midway point, the week-to-week shuffling among the nation's elite is sure to continue down the stretch, even if the very top of this list remains unchanged this week.
1. Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State (last week: No. 1) -- Despite another outstanding performance from Marcus Mariota, Prescott retains the top spot as the No. 1 Bulldogs enjoyed a much-deserved bye week. Prescott - who has 1,478 passing yards, 576 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns - will have plenty of opportunities to pad his stats in the coming weeks with lesser matchups against Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennessee-Martin ahead, but whether or not he can win the award will come down to a pair of road tests in November at Alabama and Ole Miss, as well as a potential SEC Championship Game.
