Dawgs Hopefull on Keith Marshall's Return

ATHENS - Keith Marshall may not have shown it in an actual game for some time, but the tailback still is a threat as a ballcarrier.

“He can definitely still go,” Thomas Brown said.

The former Georgia running back worked with Marshall on the practice field for the first time this spring after arriving from Wisconsin.

“One thing I talked to him about in the spring was trying to overcome the mental adjustment of being injured,” Brown said. “I’ve been there before (tearing an ACL in 2006). I understand sometimes coming back as a running back you’re thinking about what you’ve done before to be injured or are thinking about reinjuring something.”

Marshall sustained a torn ACL in 2013, did not play after the third game last season after sustaining ankle and knee injuries and missed practice time in the spring with a pulled hamstring.

The 5-foot-11 Marshall is healthy now, according to Brown, and in the 215 to 217 pound range now.

“He looks good, is around good and has a great attitude,” Brown said. “He’s in better shape in my opinion than he was in the spring.”
