With Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones’ status for Saturday’s game against Kentucky in doubt, freshman outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins is preparing to earn his second start.
“I’ve been thinking on it just in case (Jones doesn’t play),” Jenkins said. “I’m trying to get ready. If he is out, I’m going to hurry up and get some sacks to get to his level and get passed him before he gets back.”
Jenkins started against Florida Atlantic in place of Jones, who sat out with a groin injury. Jones’ status for Kentucky this Saturday is in the air, as the All-American has not practiced since suffering a sprained ankle against South Carolina on Oct. 6.
Richt sidestepped questions about Jones’ status on Wednesday.
“I don’t really want the whole world to know what’s going on, either, because somebody has to play us and decide whether they are planning for him or not planning for him,” Richt said.
