Georgia running back Keith Marshall was knocked out of the Bulldogs' game against Tennessee midway through the first quarter on Saturday, and he will miss the rest of the game, CBS reported.

Marshall was tackled after an incomplete pass from Aaron Murray with under six minutes left in the first period. The tailback was helped off the field before his leg was attended to on the sidelines. CBS' Tracy Wolfson reported that Marshall will miss the rest of the game.

CBS cameras showed Marshall in tears on the sidelines. Marshall was the Bulldogs' No. 1 tailback option against the Vols as Todd Gurley continued to nurse an ankle injury suffered last week against LSU. Marshall had rushed 51 times for 213 yards and a touchdown coming into Saturday's game, and he'd managed five carries for 33 yards before going down against Tennessee.
