Update: Coach Todd Graham said at Tuesday's practice that Marshall will indeed miss all of spring practice.
Arizona State senior running back Cameron Marshall underwent surgery last week to address his lingering ankle issues, DevilsDigest.com first reported on their website. He is expected to miss most, if not all, of the remainder of spring practices, but is expected to be back at full strength by the start of fall camp in August.
Even with the ankle injury hampering throughout all of last season, Marshall became the first ASU running back to surpass 1,000 rushing in a season since 2006. His 18 rushing touchdowns in 2011 tied him with Terry Battle and Woody Green for the most in school history. He needs 11 scores this season to surpass Green for the school's career mark of 39.
Marshall is expected to lead a very potent Sun Devil backfield in 2012. With the offense focusing on a run-first attack, Marshall will be joined by heralded incoming recruits D.J. Foster and Marion Grice, as well as redshirt sophomore Deantre Lewis, making his way back from a gunshot wound that kept him out for all of 2011.
