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‚Äôs tailback rotation will shake out on Saturday against Georgia Tech?
‚ÄúI don‚Äôt know the answer to that,‚Äù Bulldogs coach Mark Richt said today. ‚ÄúI really don‚Äôt know the answer to that. We‚Äôve got to sort through it. It‚Äôs just not cut and dry. I don‚Äôt even know who‚Äôs going to start. I don‚Äôt even know who‚Äôs going to play 100 percent. We‚Äôre working our way through it.‚Äù
This could be largely gamesmanship before the rivalry game Saturday.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôll know more by the end of the week,‚Äù Richt said. ‚ÄúI don‚Äôt know what I‚Äôll announce. Right this second, I don‚Äôt know exactly how it‚Äôs going to come out.‚Äù
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‚Äôs full pads practice after being limited to two carries against Kentucky due to a sprained left ankle.
‚ÄúI think there‚Äôs a chance he plays,‚Äù Richt said.
That‚Äôs less upbeat than Sunday when Richt said director of sports medicine Ron Courson ‚Äúis pretty confident that he‚Äôll be healthy enough to go.‚Äù
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.
‚ÄúThat‚Äôs a good question,‚Äù Richt said. ‚ÄúI don‚Äôt know that answer right now.‚Äù
