Georgia Bulldogs running back Keith Marshall was one of the many unfortunate injury casualties for the team during their 2013 run. During the game last season against Tennessee, Marshall went down with a torn ACL and missed the remainder of the season, with 2014 to look forward to.
The only thing is, there might not be a 2014 season for Marshall neither, as the Macon Telegraph is reporting that Marshall could receive a redshirt this season, according to running backs coach Bryan McClendon.
“Right now the plan is to see how far along he is, and then do what’s going to be best for him,” McClendon said. “That’s going to be priority No. 1. To do what’s best for him. And that way, I think everybody will be able to sleep good at night.”
With Todd Gurley back for his junior season this year, while it would be nice to have the depth at running back with Marshall active, it’s not exactly a necessity. So if the Georgia coaching staff does see it in his best interest to sit out one more year, then that’s what they will apparently do.
