Practice observations

Georgia returned to practice after its week-long Spring Break and one thing jumped immediately to mind - sophomore running back Keith Marshall was back on the field.

Marshall missed Georgia's first four sessions while recovering from a tweaked hamstring he suffered running track.

During the three five-minute periods the media was allowed to watch, Marshall appeared to run without any issues at all, which is obviously good news for the Bulldogs.

Backup running back Brandon Harton was also back after missed the first four workouts with a minor injury.

One more of Georgia's walking wounded also appears closer to getting back.

Starting right tackle John Theus was seen jogging under the watchful eye of trainer Ron Courson and appeared to be moving quite well after undergoing off-season foot surgery.

Initially, coaches were not sure if Theus would be able to practice at all this spring, but it now appears the Jacksonville native could see some time before spring drills come to an end.

In other observations:

Amarlo Herrera and Ramik Wilson continue to work with the first unit at inside linebacker, with freshmen Ryne Rankin and Reggie Carter with the twos.

● Freshman Tramel Terry (ACL) was in green, watching the rest of Georgia's receivers practice under the eye of position coach Tony Ball.

● The Bulldogs had nine players working out with defensive line coach Chris Wilson.

Jordan Jenkins, Josh Dawson, James DeLoach, Brandon Burrows along with walkons Dillard Pinkston and Matt Stagg make up the group of players currently working out at outside linebacker for the Bulldogs.

● Former linebacker Christian Robinson was back at practice watching on Tuesday. Robinson, along with 15 of his former teammates who will be taking part in Georgia's Pro Day on Thursday.
