(UPDATED):Todd Gurley placed on indefinite suspension by Georgia.

Major bad new out of Georgia. The school has suspended tailback Todd Gurley in what's described as "an alleged violation of NCAA rules." Few details are available.

UGA released the following statement.

" University of Georgia tailback Todd Gurley has been indefinitely suspended from competition by the UGA Athletic Association during an ongoing investigation into an alleged violation of NCAA rules.
"I¹m obviously very disappointed," said UGA head football coach Mark Richt. "The important thing for our team is to turn all our attention toward preparation for Missouri."

This pretty much jeopardizes Gurley's chances for Heisman Trophy, and could derail the rest of UGA's season.

UPDATED 5:59 PM: Bruce Feldman is reporting that Guley's suspension may involve accepting "extra benefits" from "memorabilia brokers."
