Georgia coach Mark Richt said tailback Todd Gurley, who has been battling a sprained ankle he suffered against LSU, wouldn‚Äôt be full speed at Tuesday‚Äôs practice. ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs definitely progressing, but do I think he‚Äôll run plays with even the scout team? I don‚Äôt know if he will.‚Äù Gurley wasn‚Äôt seen during the media viewing period on Tuesday, neither was safety Tray Matthews (hamstring). ‚Ä¶ Richt said the coaches are planning to redshirt safety Shaquille Fluker after he transferred from East Mississippi Community College. ‚ÄúYou get to the point where you decide who you‚Äôre going with, so to speak, and he just wasn‚Äôt ready at that time. I know we had some injury issues along the way and by the time we settled on who was in there and making the plays and getting the reps he wasn‚Äôt one of them.‚Äù ‚Ä¶ Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said he expects linebacker Ramik Wilson (knee contusion) to practice today. ‚ÄúWe‚Äôll just have to see how it is,‚Äù Grantham said. ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs played enough snaps that he‚Äôs got a pretty good idea what we‚Äôre doing. Taking a few snaps off him is really not an issue.‚Äù Grantham was unsure of Matthews‚Äôs status for today, saying that the safety ran a bit at Tuesday‚Äôs practice. ‚Ä¶ About 500 tickets were returned by Kentucky for the Wildcats‚Äô game at Sanford Stadium on Nov. 23. Those tickets can be purchased online or by calling the ticket office.
