Marshall also missed the entire 2016 season after suffering an elbow injury in the team’s third preseason game.

While at Georgia, Marshall tore his ACL in the same knee. He fully recovered and had the fastest time in the 40-yard dash at the 2016 NFL Combine, and the Redskins drafted him in the last round of the 2016 draft.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden had just indicated to reporters that Marshall looked good in preseason camp before his injury.

Marshall rushed for over 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns during his time at Georgia. Patella tendon injuries are difficult to come back from, but hopefully Marshall will be able to recover and return to the field next season.
