Georgia loses RB Keith Marshall, WR Justin Scott-Wesley for season

1 Comment

Georgia’s win over Tennessee on Saturday keeps getting costlier and costlier.

Bulldogs coach Mark Richt confirmed to the media on Sunday that running back Keith Marshall and wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley will miss the remainder of the season due to ACL injuries suffered against the Volunteers.

The speedy Scott-Wesley is currently Georgia’s second-leading receiver with 16 catches for 311 yards and two touchdowns. He’s averaging 19.4 yards per catch this season and is adept at using his track speed to stretch the field. Marshall is Georgia’s oft-used, second-leading rusher with 246 yards and one touchdown. With starting tailback Todd Gurley out due to an ankle injury, Marshall was being relied upon to carry the load. That task will now fall to others, something Richt remarked upon when discussing the injuries.

“We’ve just got to dig deep and give some other guys opportunity, get them repped up and make some plays,” Richt said.

That should mean more work for freshman J.J. Green at running back and freshman Reggie Davis at wide out.  Green played very well against Tennessee, rushing for 129 yards on 17 carries, while Davis is averaging 42 yards on his four catches so far this season.

While these two and others get up to speed, Richt might want to consider ensconcing quarterback Aaron Murray in bubble wrap.

Colorado had already lost one starting inside linebacker to injury.  Now, the Buffs have lost another.

Kenneth Olugbode sustained an unspecified leg injury in the Week 5 loss to Oregon. As a result, Olugbode will miss 4-6 weeks.

At minimum, Olugbode will miss games against Arizona State, Arizona, Oregon State and UCLA, possibly returning for the Nov. 7 game against Stanford. Missing six weeks would see him miss the Stanford and USC games, returning, Nov. 21 vs. Washington State.

It’s going to be a big loss,” defensive tackle Justin Solis said according to the Denver Post. “It starts up front with us, the D-line. Not having K.O. out there is a huge loss, but it’s definitely something we accept as a challenge as a D-line. We’re going to step it up while he’s out.”

Olugbode had started all five games this season after starting all 12 games as a sophomore last season. Ryan Severson is expected to take his place in the starting lineup.

Back on September 10, it was announced that Jim Harbaugh had dismissed Logan Tuley-Tillman for “conduct unacceptable for a Michigan student-athlete.”  Now we know what that unacceptable conduct was.  Allegedly.

Wednesday morning, is reporting, Tuley-Tillman was charged with three felonies stemming from a Sept. 4 incident in which he’s accused of filming a sex act with a woman without her knowledge. Tuley-Tillman was officially charged with two counts of capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person and one count of using a computer to commit a crime.

From the report:

Capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person is punishable by up to two years in prison, a fine of no more than $2,000, or both. Using a computer to commit a crime, in this case, would be punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a fine of no more than $5,000, or both.

The incident occurred in the 300 block of Catherine Street Sept. 4. Tuley-Tillman is accused of filming a portion of a sexual encounter with a woman without her knowledge and then transmitting it to his personal device without her permission, according to Ann Arbor police.

Tuley-Tillman was a four-star member of Brady Hoke‘s second-to-last UM recruiting class, rated as the No. 24 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 7 player at any position in the state of Illinois.  He played in one game as a redshirt freshman last season, the season opener against Appalachian State.

This season, he had been listed as the No. 2 left tackle and played in the 2015 opener.
