ATHENS — There are no limitations on Keith Marshall this spring.

Marshall was working with Georgia’s running backs on the first day of spring practice, and looked fully recovered from the many injuries that have caused him to miss much of the past two seasons.

“Keith has no limitations,” coach Mark Richt said on Tuesday. “He looks good. He’s working on getting into playing shape.”

If healthy, Marshall could give the Bulldogs a formidable running back trio with Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.

Richt and Michel both said Marshall is leaner than in the past, but didn’t have his exact weight.

Marshall has missed most of the past two years with various injuries, but was more highly touted than Todd Gurley entering Georgia in 2013.

Michel, who also missed time last season with injuries, said Marshall is “100 percent, going full speed.”

“He was moving fast, moving good.”

Chubb said: “He’s back. Keith Marshall is back and I’m excited about that. I look forward to Keith having a great year.”

Chubb was the SEC freshman of the year after rushing for 1,547 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2014.

Michel played in eight games as a freshman, rushing for 410 yards and five scores, and Marshall has 1,029 career yards and nine touchdowns.

A.J. Turman, who missed last season with a foot injury, also practiced.
