Georgia Loses Marshall, Scott-Wesley For Season

The carnage from the Tennessee game leaves Georgia's offense with two more guys gone for the season.

As feared, Georgia's Keith Marshall is gone for the season after tearing his ACL in UGA's overtime win over Tennessee. He had the look of a guy lost for the season on the sideline, with coaches and teammates coming by to console their morose teammate. Todd Gurley remains day-to-day with his ankle sprain, so it's impossible to tell yet if he will miss more time.

Justin Scott-Wesley also tore his ACL, leaving the Bulldogs' wide receiving corps even more shorthanded after it lost Malcolm Mitchell for the season earlier this year. The good news is that Michael Bennett did not tear a ligament, so he might be able to return later this season. The trainers aren't quite sure what's wrong with his knee, so he'll have it looked at further and will miss the game against Missouri this coming week.

For this coming weekend's shootout with the Tigers, Georgia will have just two guys with double digits in catches on the season—Chris Conley with 20 and Arthur Lynch with 11. If Gurley can't go again, the running game will again lean on freshmen J.J. Green, who ran for 7.6 yards per carry against Tennessee, and Brendan Douglas.
