Georgia Bulldogs Football: Keith Marshall says he's been physically cleared


One of the important pieces in the Georgia Bulldogs offense, running back Keith Marshall, has reportedly been cleared for all physical activity and contact, according to a report from Dawgs247.com.

Keep in mind, all of this is coming from the lips of Marshall and not from the Georgia coaching or medical staff, so there is nothing official yet as to Marshall’s ready status.

Marshall spoke to 247Sports Georgia insider Gentry Estes about his ongoing recovery from a torn ACL suffered against Tennessee last season.

“I feel good,” he said. “They’re still being smart with everybody that was hurt. But I feel good. I don’t think I’ll have any limitations going into camp (in August).”

Right now the coaching staff is going to continue to monitor the progress of Marshall as well as other players who suffered season-ending injuries last year.

The tandem of Marshall and teammate Todd Gurley (or the duo formerly known as “Gurshall”) is regarded as one of the best in college football, and will be the bell cow for the Georgia offense this season under the leadership of a new quarterback.

The fortunate thing for the Dawgs that is if Marshall is still suffering some lingering effects of the ACL surgery, there are two young backs joining the ranks of the Bulldogs backfield this season, top recruits Sony Michel and Nick Chubb. Coach Mark Richt can also depend on Brendan Douglas and J.J. Green., who both filled in admirably last season during Marshall’s extended absence and when Gurley was on the shelf.

    J.J. Green was moved to the defensive backfield.

    • Michael Collins

      Yes he was, but he’s still available as a RB should the need arise. Same thing happened when they moved Mitchell to the secondary.
