1. Georgia frosh running back impressing?
Pending health, the top two at running back for the Bulldogs is set. Todd Gurley is the starter with Keith Marshall backing him up. After that, it is really up in the air because of the impressions that both freshman running backs are making so far in camp. This past weekend in a scrimmage, the Nick Chubb and Sony Michel combined for 73 yards on 12 carries in limited time. With sophomore J.J. Green’s move to the secondary, there is a spot open now behind the top two, with the competition including Chubb and Michel as well as sophomore Brendan Douglas. Carries will be limited because the Bulldogs will want to feed Gurley as much as possible, but there should be plenty of carries to go around.

There are always two sides of the coin when it comes to injuries. Obviously, nobody wants to see any player get hurt, especially if that player is crucial to the success of your team.
On the other hand, an injury can allow for other players to thrive that we may not have known about if the injury did not take place. Regardless, injuries are a part of college football and they will always take place.
Here are some key players that should return to the field in 2014 after suffering an injury last season.
1. Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss
While much of the attention went to other star freshman like receiver Laquon Treadwell and defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, tight end Evan Engram was quietly putting together a solid rookie campaign with 20 receptions and three touchdowns through the first seven games. Unfortunately, an ankle injury sidelined him for the remainder of the season, leaving just two walk-ons to try and replace the production lost with Engram’s injury. The position was eliminated at that point and Ole Miss went more to a three-wideout look with two backs. With Engram back, Ole Miss will line him up in the slot and will be a matchup problem because of his wide receiver-like size and speed. Big things are expected from Engram in 2014.
