Athens, GA (Sports Network) - Georgia Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt confirmed Sunday that wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley and running back Keith Marshall will miss the remainder off the season after sustaining ACL injuries in Saturday's overtime win against Tennessee.

Marshall tore his ACL trying to make a catch during the first quarter, while Scott-Wesley went down with the same injury in the third quarter when his knee buckled while covering a punt.

The sophomore Marshall carried the ball 56 times for 246 yards and a score through Georgia's first five games, while Scott-Wesley ranked second on the team in receiving with 16 catches for 311 yards and two touchdowns.

Wide receiver Michael Bennett, who had his 2012 campaign cut short due to a torn ACL, also left the game in the third quarter after injuring the same knee he had surgery on last year.

Bennett will have a scope on his knee to find out the seriousness of his injury, while running back Todd Gurley is considered day-to-day after sitting out Saturday's win with an ankle sprain.
