Marshall nicked up, "fine," will practice Tuesday

AUBURN, Ala. -

Nick Marshall is expected to back at practice full-speed on Tuesday after limping noticeably through much of the fourth quarter on Saturday.

Offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said it was just the normal "bumps and bruises" of playing a hard game.

Marshall ran for a season-high 140 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries in the Tigers' 30-22 win over then-no. 24 Ole Miss. Lashlee and head coach Gus Malzahn know Marshall's style of play and their run-heavy gameplan make the injury risk higher, but the quarterback is smart.

"If it's third-and-one or two, or you're on the one yard line, then you have to go get it," Lashlee said. "He's done a good job of getting down or getting out of bounds and getting as much as he can."

Lashlee also described Marshall as "shifty" and said since he doesn't run much between the tackles, he hasn't taken a lot of hard, direct shots.
