Scott-Wesley, Marshall Done for Season

ATHENS – Georgia fans got the news they didn't want to hear Sunday evening.

Coach Mark Richt confirmed fears that both running back Keith Marshall and receiver Justin Scott-Wesley both had season-ending injuries during the Bulldogs' come-from-behind 34-31 overtime win at Tennessee.

Richt said receiver Michael Bennett, who's season ended last year with an ACL tear the week of the South Carolina game, will have his knee scoped on Tuesday to determine Bennett's status the rest of the season.

Marshall was filling in for injured starting running back Todd Gurley. The Bulldogs were forced to use third- and fourth-string true freshmen J.J. Green and Brendan Douglas against the Vols. Green ended the game with 129 yards and Douglas added a touchdown.

Scott-Wesley's injury is the second time this season the Bulldogs have lost their top pass catcher. Malcolm Mitchell went down in the first quarter of the first game of the year. Scott-Wesley had scored Georgia's game-winning touchdown a week before against LSU and had a critical touchdown in the fourth quarter of Georgia's win over South Carolina in September.

Georgia is hopeful that Jonathon Rumph will recover soon from a nagging hamstring injury to play receiver. Richt said Saturday after the win that Gurley was still day-to-day, and that there was a 50% chance he would play against #25 Missouri this week.

Richt said that Tramel Terry "would be available" but was uncommitted about his status for this season. "I am not counting him out," Richt said. "But I just don't know."

Richt was also non-committal on playing true freshman running back A.J. Turman for the season of the season. "We like the two freshman running backs who are playing for us."
