Quick hits: Green in noncontact jersey, but should play in spring game

J.J. Green, the sophomore star nickel back, practiced in a non-contact jersey Tuesday, but Georgia coach Mark Richt said he’s likely to play in the G-Day game. Tight end Jordan Davis (sprained knee) remains out.

… Former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray and tight end Arthur Lynch were at practice Tuesday as they gear up for next week‚Äôs Pro Day workout.

… Richt said Georgia has done more special teams work this spring than in the past.

“We’ve even incorporated more punt team stuff into our scrimmage days, which normally we don’t do that,” Richt said. “We’re doing more drills with the punt team versus the punt return and block team. We did that today to start the practice off, which was really good.”

… Wide receiver Jonathon Rumph was excused from the early portion of practice while finishing up some academic work, Richt said.
