According to the Macon Telegraph’s Keith Emerson, Marshall will be held out for the third straight game with his sprained ankle and knee suffered in the game against Troy on Sept. 20.

Marshall has been questionable all week, and Richt mad the news official today that the Dawgs will be without him in the backfield once again.

There is reportedly no structural damage to Marshall’s knee, and the injuries themselves are more contact injury in nature. This means that the trio of Todd Gurley, Nick Chubb and Brendan Douglas will once again be the featured running backs for the big conference matchup against the Missouri Tigers. As for the wide receivers, Georgia got back deep threat and explosive receiver Malcolm Mitchell last week against Vanderbilt. His injured counterpart, Justin Scott-Wesley is still making progress, but its not yet known if he will be game ready for Missouri. Senior Jonathon Rumph had an injury setback, and will likely not play against Missouri either.
