Isaiah Crowell limited with minor groin injury

The hits just keep coming to an already injury depleted Georgia team.

This time it's prized recruit and possible starting tailback Isaiah Crowell, who is dealing with a minor groin injury according to head coach Mark Richt. Columbus Ledger-Enquier beat writer Seth Emerson reports that the injury has sidelined Crowell for Friday's practice and made him day-to-day the rest of camp.

How big is this injury? Considering that the team's top two rushers from last season, Washaun Ealey and Caleb King are both no longer with the team, Crowell was expected to compete for significant playing time for the opener against Boise State.

Journeyman Richard Samuel entered camp as the number one running back but with Crowell limited, the depth at the position is perilously thin. Redshirt freshman Ken Malcome is the lone back behind Samuel with Carlton Thomas expected to return following his suspension for the Boise State game.
