ORLANDO, Fla. — There seemed to be less optimism from Georgia coach Mark Richt on Sunday about how much defensive end Abry Jones would be able to contribute — of if he’ll contribute at all — in the bowl game. Jones is trying to return after missing the last six games following ankle surgery.
“I don’t know how much he’ll go,” Richt said. “I wouldn’t say he’s just flying around right now. He’s been working really hard to get back to where he could play. Just what kind of condition is he in and just how quickly can he move. We don’t want to put him out there if he’s really not ready to play full-speed Georgia football, you know? I’m not 100 percent sure how much he will play.”
Richt said a decision may be made on if Jones will play during pregame warmups.
