ATHENS, GA (AP) - Georgia coach Mark Richt hasn't announced a starting tailback for Saturday's game at Missouri, even though freshman Todd Gurley rushed for 100 yards on just eight carries in his college debut.

Gurley says he expects Ken Malcome to remain the top guy on the depth chart. Malcome started the opener against Buffalo, rushing for 32 yards before he went out with an injured left hand.

Malcome is not listed on Georgia's injury report and should play against Missouri. Richt says the Bulldogs will likely spread around the playing time, as they did in the first game. Another freshman, Keith Marshall, ran a team-high 10 times for 46 yards.

Cornerback Malcolm Mitchell (sprained left ankle) remains limited at practice. Offensive tackle John Theus (sprained left ankle) did not practice Tuesday.
