Chick-fil-A Bowl: Dec. 14 Practice Report

Posted Dec 14, 2006

ATHENS - The Georgia Bulldogs began preparations for the upcoming Chick-fil-A Bowl, working out for almost 90 minutes here Thursday.

The Bulldogs will practice in Athens through the 21st before taking a three-day holiday break and then will reconvene in Atlanta on the 25th. Georgia faces 14th-ranked Virginia Tech on Dec. 30 at the Georgia Dome.

Earlier Thursday in Atlanta, Georgia head coach Mark Richt took part in a head coaches bowl media luncheon and indicated that junior place-kicker Brandon Coutu could possibly return for the bowl. Coutu, a first team All-SEC selection and third team AP All-American in 2005, missed the final seven games of the regular season due to a torn hamstring.

After practice, Coutu was asked about his status for the game and said time will tell if he is able to play. He said he attempted 10 "half-kicks" on Monday and Wednesday and kicked a soccer ball much of Thursday's practice.

"I'm just easing in to it right now, not rushing anything," said Coutu. "I feel like the injury has healed and now I have to strengthen the muscle. I haven't ruled anything out, each day we'll see how it feels."
