ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia freshman running back Isaiah Crowell was held out of practice Friday with a strained groin.

Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said the injury is not considered serious. Richt added that he didn't know when Crowell would return to practice.

Georgia opens the season against Boise State in Atlanta on Sept. 3.

Crowell was the marquee high school senior to sign a scholarship among Georgia's well-publicized group of freshman recruits. The former Parade All-American ran for over 3,600 yards and scored 58 touchdowns in his last three years at Carver High in Columbus, Ga.
