Georgia fans will not be treated to any further exploits of “Gurshall” in 2013, unfortunately. Already having been bitten badly by the injury bug, the Bulldogs lost two more star offensive players for the season. Running back Keith Marshall (one half of formidable duo of “Gurshall,” along with Todd Gurley) and wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley are both done for the year after sustaining torn ACLs.
#UGA RB Keith Marshall and WR Justin Scott-Wesley are out for the rest of the season with torn ACLs, Mark Richt said.

Making matters worse, the team may also be without receiver Michael Bennett for an extended period of time as well. After missing nearly the entire 2012 season with a torn ACL himself, he will be undergoing arthroscopic surgery after suffering another knee injury. He will at least miss Saturday’s game against Mizzou and could easily miss more time.
“We’ve just got to dig deep and give some other guys opportunity, get them repped up and make some plays,” Richt told reporters.
Marshall rushed for 246 yards on 56 carries with a touchdown this year after collecting 749 yards and eight scores as a freshman last season.
Scott-Worley’s year ends after tallying 311 yards, second-most on the team.
Top receiver Malcolm Mitchell was also lost for the season earlier in the year.
