Freshman running back Isaiah Crowell acknowledged that the ankle sprain that bothered him at the end of the season is no longer an issue but the Bulldogs leading rusher is still taking snaps with the second-team as they prepare for the Outback Bowl against Michigan State.
"I think I need to be more accountable and just handle my responsibilities better, Teammates and coaches are counting on me to do what I'm supposed to do."
Injuries and suspensions have overshadowed a season in which Crowell is still on pace to finish with the third-most rushing yards all time by a freshman. With 44 yards, Crowell will move past Rodney Hampton and trail only Knowshon Moreno and Herschel Walker.
Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo says that Malcome and Crowell are competing for the starting job with Brandon Harton working as the third-team running back. Both Richard Samuel and Carlton Thomas are limited and recovering from injuries although both could figure into the picture in time to play in the game.
