Quick hits: TB Marshall stays in non-contact jersey

Tailback Keith Marshall continues to practice in a non-contact jersey as he returns from a torn ACL.

“He’s been doing some change of direction things not in a competitive situation,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said. “We don’t really want him to do anything competitive right now, but it’s good to see him moving well.”

Richt said he likes what he’s seen from redshirt freshman tailback A.J. Turman so far. “He looks like he’s in great condition. He’s practiced very hard, and he’s practicing harder, longer than a couple of the other guys, I think, because he’s in really good condition.”

Mike Macdonald, a defensive graduate assistant at Georgia since the spring of 2011, is joining the Baltimore Ravens’ staff as a coaching intern. He helped Georgia with its recruiting efforts after all four defensive coaches left following last season. He first joined the staff in 2010 as a student assistant.
