Keith Marshall, Justin Scott-Wesley Out For Season; Michael Bennett Out For Missouri Game

Running back Keith Marshall and wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley are both out for the remainder of the 2013 season, head coach Mark Richt announced on his radio show Sunday evening.

Richt also said that wide receiver Michael Bennett will have a scope on his right knee on Tuesday to determine the extent of the damage. It’s the same knee that Bennett tore the ACL in last season. He will definitely miss the Missouri game this weekend.

“It’s sad. It’s sad for our players,” Richt said. “You see them work so hard to get in position to play for Georgia, you know? To realize their dreams to play in big games, play for championships and all that. You know how much work they put in and how hard they play and you look forward to working in practice, the off-season then in one play like that it’s taken away from them. It’s heartbreaking. I don’t know what hurts more, the pain of the injury or knowing they won’t be playing any more for awhile. I feel bad them.”

Todd Gurley, Georgia’s leading rusher, did not play on Saturday due to an ankle sprain suffered last week vs. LSU. Richt said that Gurley is 50-50 to play on Saturday against Missouri.

That means that the bulk of the carries this weekend will go to freshman J.J. Green and Brendan Douglas.

Wide receiver and JUCO transfer Jonathan Rumph continues to nurse a strained hamstring and is doubtful for the Missouri game. Due to the injury, Rumph has yet to get into a game despite impressing in Fall practice.

Georgia’s four primary receivers are now Chris Conley, Rantavious Wooten, Reggie Davis, and Rhett McGowan. Others that will get looks include Kenneth Towns, Blake Tibbs, Tramel Terry, and Uriah LeMay. Terry’s status is uncertain because he is recovering from an ACL tear suffered at the Shrine Bowl in December.

No. 7 Georgia (4-1, 3-0 SEC) hosts the No. 25 Missouri Tigers (5-0, 1-0) on Saturday at Sanford Stadium. The game will be televised by ESPN at noon.
