ATHENS - Although senior Ken Veal is closer to 100 percent healthy than he's been all year, freshman Ray Gant still will start on the defensive line against LSU, defensive line coach Rodney Garner said.

has made 12 tackles and quite an impression on Coach
"He's definitely earned a lot of playing time," Richt said. "I'd imagine he's going to be in there quite a bit if he keeps playing like he has been. He's got some fundamental issues he needs to improve on, but what has got him all the playing time is his effort."
Gant also has five quarterback pressures.
INJURY UPDATE: o Safety
(leg) and defensive end
(thumb) will travel to Baton Rouge and dress out for the game but neither is guaranteed playing time.
"If (Curry) plays and how much is very hard to say," Richt said. "Marcus is in the same boat."
Starting wide receiver
(hamstring) and starting running back
(leg) won't make the trip because there is no chance they would play, and SEC schools are only allowed to take 70 players on the road. Tight end
(ankle) is also out, but he will make the trip because he's a senior, Richt said.

THIS AND THAT:

of Cordele will start practicing again in mid-October, Richt said. Pannell has missed a year and a half due to shoulder injuries. Defensive lineman
(shoulder) is also expected to return to contact work in mid-October.
QUOTABLE: "We've faced adversity off the field in the offseason and in camp, but... we've never had anybody really steal the momentum of a game away from us. I'm certain it will happen Saturday, and I'm eager to see how the guys will react to it." - Richt.
