Monday Practice Report


After enjoying its bye week, the Dawgs returned to the practice fields on Monday with a two-hour workout in full pads.

“I thought today was great,” coach Mark Richt said. “We challenged them before practice and told them this would be our last day of tackling if we got the job done. We’ll keep tackling the scout team this week, but the 1s vs. 1s and the 2s vs. 2s got the job done.”

Richt was asked about the health status of quarterback Aaron Murray, who participated in Monday’s drills. Murray suffered a bruised knee and bruised sternum in the game with Auburn.

“He practiced and he did a pretty good job,” Richt said. “There’s a difference between practice and playing, so we’ll have to see if he continues to improve.”

Richt announced the captains for Saturday’s game will be Demarcus Dobbs, Akeem Dent, Shaun Chapas and Chad Gloer. Other members of the Dawgs’ senior class will wear the captain “C” logo as well.

The Dawgs were idle last week after 11 straight games. On Saturday, Georgia will host instate rival Georgia Tech. The Dawgs are 5-6 overall, while the Yellow Jackets are 6-5. The game will kick off at 7:45 p.m..
