A.J. Turman emerging as tailback to watch for Georgia
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - A.J. Turman, who has never played in a regular-season game for Georgia, is emerging as a tailback to watch in 2015.
Turman, a third-year sophomore, led the Bulldogs in rushing Saturday for the second straight scrimmage. He ran for 140 yards and two touchdowns to gain momentum for next week's spring game.
With Todd Gurley preparing for the NFL draft, Nick Chubb's carries being closely monitored and Keith Marshall and Sony Michel out with injuries, Turman has benefited from an increased workload this spring.
Turman missed last season with a right foot injury that required surgery. He was redshirted in 2013.
Chubb, the Southeastern Conference's freshman of the year last season, will be Georgia's lead tailback this year. Turman could be moving up the depth chart.
