Monday Practice Report


The Georgia football team began preparations for its game against Tennessee with a 90-minute workout on the Woodruff Practice Fields on Monday.

The No. 5 Dawgs are off to a 4-0 start, including a 2-0 mark in the SEC. On Saturday, the Dawgs will entertain Tennessee in a 3:30 p.m. contest at Sanford Stadium. The game will be televised by CBS. Tennessee is 3-1 overall and 0-1 in the SEC.

"Tennessee has a well-coached team," receiver Chris Conley said. "Their coaching staff is doing a great job over there and they have a lot of athletes. It's going to be a great matchup. This is the kind of game we all love to play. It definitely will be a week where we have to put in a lot of work to prepare ourselves, but we're ready for the challenge."

"It was a good practice tonight," coach Mark Richt said. "It was a beautiful night and everyone's spirits were up. Everybody was working hard. I liked the focus we showed tonight. We've got a big challenge in front of us this week, and it's going to take a great week of preparation. I feel like tonight we got the week off on the right foot."

Richt said the captains for the Tennessee game will be receiver Marlon Brown on offense, end Abry Jones and linebacker Jarvis Jones on defense, and safety Connor Norman on special teams.

The injury report included tackle Watts Dantzler (left ankle sprain, limited, no contact) and Abry Jones (left ankle sprain, out).
