Georgia RB Keith Marshall was kept away from contact for the second straight practice, but Mark Richt says he'll play on Saturday.

Georgia Bulldogs running back Keith Marshall practiced in a non-contact jersey for the second consecutive day on Wednesday, according to Dog Bytes Online's Marc Weiszer. However, the freshman tailback is expected to play for the No. 3 Bulldogs against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Saturday.

Marshall has been dealing with a sore shoulder, but head coach Mark Richt told Weiszer that Marshall is "fine," adding that "he'll play."

Marshall is Georgia's second-leading rusher. His fellow freshman Todd Gurley has eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark. Marshall has gained 654 yards on 100 carries with six touchdowns on the season for the 10-1 Bulldogs, who have clinched a spot in the SEC Championship Game but need to get past the Yellow Jackets to keep their national title hopes alive.

Georgia and Georgia Tech will kick off at noon ET on Saturday from Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga. The game will be televised on ESPN.
