Keith Marshall Injury: Georgia RB Leaves Game vs. South Carolina
Georgia running back Keith Marshall left the Bulldogs' home encounter with the South Carolina Gamecocks in the second half with an injury as his team clutched onto a lead late.
According to ESPN's David Ching, the training staff appeared to be looking at Marshall's knee:

Prior to leaving the game, Marshall had carried the ball seven times for 58 yards as the primary backup to starter and Heisman candidate Todd Gurley. Marshall had also reeled in two receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown.
Marshall acts as important depth on a roster with only sophomore Quayvon Hicks behind him on the depth chart ready to see significant action. In Georgia's opening loss against Clemson in Week 1, Marshall tallied 43 yards and a touchdown as the second-best option on the roster.
Freshman Brendan Douglas started to see action against the Gamecocks in Marshall's absence, but over the long-term the Bulldogs are going to need Marshall at 100 percent.
