Keith Marshall Back, But G Day Unclear

Mark Richt said Tuesday that he wasn't certain if RB Keith Marshall would play on Saturday at G Day.

ATHENS - Georgia tailback Keith Marshall returned to the practice field Tuesday afternoon after being sidelined with a pulled hamstring, but his status for Saturday’s G-Day game remains uncertain.

Coach Mark Richt said Marshall isn’t at 100 percent, “but he did get reps. He got more work than I thought he would.”

Fans haven’t seen Marshall carry a ball at Sanford Stadium since he sustained knee and ankle injuries against Troy in the third game of the season last September. He at least has a chance to take part in a scrimmage for the first time this spring at G-Day.

“Will it be enough to go full speed on Saturday? I don’t know,” Richt said.

Marshall missed the last five practices, including the two scrimmages, with his hamstring injury.

His return is “good for his fellow backs. It takes a little pressure off of them.”

Tailback Sony Michel remains out with a shoulder injury.
