Geathers, Jones may have found new roles with defensive line

With Abry Jones dealing with a sprained ankle, Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham decided to play nose guards John Jenkins and Kwame Geathers together against Tennessee’s base offense. Both started.

“We thought we could take some base snaps off of (Jones) by playing those two guys in base,” Grantham said. “I think it was the right thing to do. Just trying to spread it out a little bit and find ways to reduce the number of plays those guys have to play. We’ll continue to do that as we move forward if we need that.”

Geathers had three tackles, including two for loss. Jenkins had one tackle.

Jones, who had one tackle against the Volunteers, was in a walking boot after practice Monday, but is expected to play Saturday.
