Tailback Keith Marshall is “a lot further along” in practice than running backs coach Bryan McClendon expected, he said.
The junior is getting treatment at least twice a day after tearing the ACL in his right knee against Tennessee on Oct. 5 and is pushing what he can do at practice.
“I’ve got to scale him back a little bit and tell him, ‘Hey, don’t do that,’” McClendon said. “You’ve got to know when to say when, and that’s what I’m talking to him about.”
Marshall isn’t taking part in contact work but goes through some drills.
Georgia still isn’t ruling out a possible redshirt season for Marshall.
“The plan is to see how far along he is and then do what’s going to be best for him,” McClendon said. “That way I think everybody will be able to sleep well at night.”
