Tailback Michel dressed out for Bulldogs

The freshman tailback was dressed out in full uniform for Saturday’s game against Auburn at Sanford Stadium. Michel was unable to practice the first three days of the week due to an ankle injury suffered in last Saturday’s win over Kentucky. That was Michel’s first game back after sitting out for six weeks with a broken shoulder blade. He had a team-high 16 carries against the Wildcats and finished with 86 yards rushing and a touchdown.

Michel was listed as the third-team tailback on the depth chart for Saturday’s game. Junior Todd Gurley is expected to start in his first game back from a four-game suspension, with freshman Nick Chubb as his primary backup.

Junior Keith Marshall (knee, ankle) was on Saturday’s dress-out roster but did not actually dress out.
