RBs Marshall, Harton return to practice from injury

As expected, tailbacks Keith Marshall (hamstring) and Brandon Harton (sprained MCL) practiced for the first time this spring.

Georgia running backs Keith Marshall (4) and Brandon Harton (20) both returned to practice on Tuesday after missing the beginning of spring ball due to injuries.

They weren’t in non-contact jerseys but didn’t do a lot in the competitive part of practice, offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said.

“It was good to get them out there and go through some pass skel stuff and then go through some thud stuff at the end and do some blitz pickup against the defense,” Bobo said. “If we had to play today, they could have went. Hopefully they’ll go full-go on Thursday. We’ll see.”

Marshall, the team’s second leading rusher, sustained his injury running track, but missed only three practices.

Offensive tackle John Theus (foot surgery) jogged on the side in a non-contact jersey.

“Felt good to be back on the field today,” Theus tweeted on Tuesday night.
