Hurd, a Beech High School graduate, had season-lows of eight carries and 16 yards in Saturday's loss at SC while sophomore John Kelly was the team's leading rusher with 94 yards on 14 carries.
"I think it's the combination of a long football season, (he's) been contemplating that".
"With that being said, we're going to move on, focus on this week and play a great ball game".
Hurd's averages of 3.7 yards per carry and 64.4 yards per game were career lows.

Jones said he met with Hurd on Monday morning and discussed the situation.
