ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Quarterback Aaron Murray is spending extra practice time with players promoted from the scout team as No. 7 Georgia tries to compensate for injuries that have forced dramatic changes at wide receiver and tailback.

Last week's 34-31 overtime win at Tennessee was costly.

Tailback Keith Marshall and wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley were lost for the season with knee injuries. Another receiver, Michael Bennett, also hurt his knee and had arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday. Bennett won't play in Saturday's game against No. 25 Missouri.

Coach Mark Richt says tailback Todd Gurley is doubtful to play this week. Gurley is not practicing Tuesday after missing the Tennessee game with an ankle sprain.

Murray says he's working with such freshmen as receiver Reggie Davis and tailbacks J.J. Green and Brendan Douglas.
