Blog: Tailback plans? `We’re working our way through it’

UPDATE: Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said that Carlton Thomas will play. He said he expects Isaiah Crowell will also be able to play.

Wondering how Georgia’s tailback rotation will shake out on Saturday against Georgia Tech?

“I don’t know the answer to that,” Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said today. “I really don’t know the answer to that. We’ve got to sort through it. It’s just not cut and dry. I don’t even know who’s going to start. I don’t even know who’s going to play 100 percent. We’re working our way through it.”

This could be largely gamesmanship before the rivalry game Saturday.

“We’ll know more by the end of the week,” Richt said. “I don’t know what I’ll announce. Right this second, I don’t know exactly how it’s going to come out.”

Georgia says Isaiah Crowell will be in a non-contact jersey (Update: nope, he was in a regular jersey for limited time we saw) for today’s full pads practice after being limited to two carries against Kentucky due to a sprained left ankle.

“I think there’s a chance he plays,” Richt said.

That’s less upbeat than Sunday when Richt said director of sports medicine Ron Courson “is pretty confident that he’ll be healthy enough to go.”

Carlton Thomas, suspended for the Kentucky game for violating a rule, practiced yesterday, players said.

With Thomas and Crowell out, Brandon Harton and Ken Malcome got the work against Kentucky.

Richt was asked if Thomas will play against Georgia Tech.

“That’s a good question,” Richt said. “I don’t know that answer right now.”
