Scott Cunningham/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The University of Georgia is doing everything they can to get their Heisman Trophy candidate back on the field as soon as possible.
Georgia officials will apply to the NCAA on Wednesday for the reinstatement of their running back Todd Gurley, who has been sidelined due to an ongoing autograph investigation.
Gurley has been inactive since Oct. 9 and the school is hoping for his return before their game against Florida on Nov. 1, reports ESPN's Mark Schlabach.
"Todd has confirmed his desire to seek reinstatement, and the University fully supports Todd's request," the university said in a statement issued Wednesday. "The University hopes for and expects a prompt ruling by the NCAA so that Todd, his coaches, and teammates can adequately prepare for our next game."
"Todd has taken responsibility for his actions and is ready to rejoin his teammates," Gurley's attorney, William King of the firm Lightfoot, Franklin & White of Birmingham, Alabama, said in the statement. "The University has been great throughout the past two weeks and has done everything it can to support Todd."
