LB Jones sits out while nursing ankle sprain

Georgia can take it slow during the bye week with linebacker Jarvis Jones after he sprained his right ankle against South Carolina.

Jones missed his second straight day of practices on Wednesday when the Bulldogs had a physical, full-pads workout, and he may not go today, Richt said.

“We just want to get him rested up 100 percent,” coach Mark Richt said. “He probably could have played this week. It’s just that time of the year where we’re allowed to let a guy get to the point where hopefully he’s not even sore anymore.

“…He’s definitely one where we’re going to allow to get as healthy as possible before we get going again on Kentucky on Monday.”

Georgia treated the practice “like spring football,” Richt said with live scrimmaging.

That was taking a risk doing it midseason, Richt said, but there were no major injuries.

Richt said one player got the back of his foot stepped on but thinks the player will return by Monday. Another player dislocated his finger.

“It was not a quarterback,” said Richt, who did not want to identify either player. “It was not a receiver. He’s a guy that usually doesn’t catch the ball.”

With season-opener nearing, Richt remains quiet on personnel moves
