LB Jarvis Jones back at practice, ‘looks pretty good’

Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones returned to practice for the first time since the South Carolina game on Monday night.

Coach Mark Richt said on his radio show that Jones, who missed the Kentucky game with a sprained ankle, “looked pretty good. I feel like we’ll have a good chance to get him in the game.”

Jones, an All-American last season, was named Monday as one of 12 semifinalist for the Butkus Award for the nation’s top linebacker. He has 5½ sacks, 9½ tackles for loss and 15 quarterback hurries this season.

Richt said that he doubts defensive end Abry Jones will play due to his left ankle injury. He did not practice.

Richt said Ray Drew, Mike Thornton and Cornelius Washington could get snaps in place of Jones.

Washington is more likely to play end if Jarvis Jones returns.
