2005 Fall Camp: Day 19 News and notes

Posted Aug 28, 2005

ATHENS - News and notes from Georgia's final day of Fall Camp.

Danny Verdun Wheeler, who aggravated an existing ankle injury in Friday’s practice, Ray Gant (knee) and Dannell Ellerbe (shoulder) are expected to be back at practice Monday, Richt said.

True freshman wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring) is not, which would greatly decrease his chance of playing in the first game and perhaps at all this year.

“It will be difficult but not impossible” for him to play against Boise State, Richt said. “It may be too difficult even if (he does return Monday). He has, to his credit, paid attention to what to do.”

GLORY DAY: Bryan McClendon rarely, if ever, thinks about Oct. 18, 2003. He promises.

That’s tough to believe considering it was his most productive day as a Bulldog. The senior from Mays High School started and caught six passes for 108 yards against Vanderbilt. That’s one more catch and 59 more yards than he had in the entire 2004 season.

“I’ve never really thought about that day,” McClendon said.

Despite the lack of opportunity last season, McClendon, who has 21 career catches for 301 yards, is confident he can have a breakout year this season. He and Sean Bailey will start for the Bulldogs.

“I see the coaches have been real pleased with me (this fall), and I see the quarterbacks have been real pleased with me,” he said. “I’ve been getting some pretty good looks this fall, but who knows what will happen when the games come.”
