Keith Marshall, Chris Burnette expected to play against Georgia Tech

As expected, Georgia running back Keith Marshall and offensive lineman Chris Burnette are in uniform and are expected to play in today's game against Georgia Tech.

Both players have been nursing shoulder injuries with Burnette sitting out the last two games. Marshall didn't take part in the contact portion of practice earlier this week but Mark Richt indicated that it was just precautionary. Marshall has rushed for 654 yards and six touchdowns this season as a freshman for Georgia. He has combined with fellow freshman Todd Gurley to give the Bulldogs one of the top rushing duos in the country.

Burnette's return will give Georgia some more depth up front along the offensive line. The Bulldogs haven't announced starters but there is a good chance that he returns as the starting right guard.
