UAB Week: Thursday Practice Report

Posted Sep 14, 2006

ATHENS ­ The 10th-ranked Bulldogs concluded a week of practice with a workout of nearly two hours on Thursday at the Woodruff practice fields.

³It was the usual Thursday,² said head coach Mark Richt. ³We had good work and good concentration. I though we threw the ball well and caught it well and had few mistakes.²

On the injury front, Richt said both DT Ray Gant (ankle) and OT Michael Turner (ankle) are doubtful for Saturday¹s game. Receiver/punt returner Mikey Henderson (hamstring) will miss his second straight game, but OG Seth Watts (knee) will play.

Richt said freshman quarterback Matthew Stafford looked good in practice on Thursday, as he will be making the first start by a true freshman QB for the Bulldogs since Quincy Carter in 1998. Redshirt freshman QB Joe Cox may also play against UAB.

³We¹d like to get Joe in there. That¹s all I can say for certain. I¹d like him to play in the first half, but we¹ll see,² said Richt.
