Ankle injury shouldn’t keep WR Conley off the field against Nebraska

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Georgia should have its leading receiver available against Nebraska, but how long Chris Conley will be able to go remains to be seen.

Conley sprained an ankle in practice in Jacksonville leading up to the game, but returned on Monday for the Bulldogs’ final workout.

“I think he’ll attempt to play,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said. “I don’t know how long it will last, but I think he’ll play. He’s a tough kid.”

Conley has 42 catches for 605 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games this season. He missed two with a sprained ankle. He rang up 136 receiving yards and two touchdowns on just two catches in last year’s bowl win against Nebraska.
