Keith Marshall just can’t catch a break. The former Georgia and current Washington Redskins running back tore his right patella tendon in training camp on Saturday and will miss the 2017 season, per John Keim of ESPN.
It is another setback for Marshall, who also missed the 2016 season after injuring his shoulder during a preseason game. In 2013, after a fast start to the season playing for the Bulldogs, Marshall tore the ACL in his right knee, missing the rest of the year.
Marshall, the seventh-round pick by the Redskins in the 2016 NFL Draft, was part of an electric backfield that also featured current Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley. During his four seasons in Athens, Marshall rushed for 1,379 yards and 12 touchdowns.
