Richt but the kibosh on any chance that junior tailback Keith Marshall, returning from ACL surgery, would redshirt this season.

"Keith's working really hard. I don't think he has any limitations at all in his offseason conditioning," Richt said. "I don't anticipate him having any limitations when football begins."

In other words, barring a setback Marshall will play and at least be Todd Gurley's top backup.

"We're not thinking redshirt at all for Marshall," Richt said.

It was never likely that Marshall would redshirt, but offensive assistants had not ruled it out.
