Tennessee Week: Wednesday Practice Report

ATHENS - The No. 12-ranked Georgia Bulldogs continued preparations for their Southeastern Conference clash with Tennessee by holding a two-hour workout Wednesday.

The Bulldogs (4-1, 2-1 SEC) face the Volunteers (2-2, 0-1 SEC) Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Neyland Stadium on CBS. Georgia coach Mark Richt said Wednesday's practice went well.

"We've have had two really good days, they did a nice job out there again," said Richt. "It helps to have nice, cool weather too."

With junior middle linebacker Marcus Washington slated to miss at least the next two games due to injury, Richt indicated a couple of younger players in freshman Rennie Curran and redshirt freshman Darryl Gamble will be seeing more action.

"Rennie and Gamble have a much better shot for playing time now," said Richt. "We've got to have a few more guys play when you know somebody is going to be out because you don't want to run out of gas. Gamble can play all over while Rennie is more ready to play now too."

Richt complimented Tennessee's offense, saying they have a good scheme, a good offensive line with veteran backs who know how to block and a quarterback who gets rid of the football quick.

"We may not get sacks but we'll have to be able to hurry him a bit and disrupt routes," said Richt.

Richt added Georgia didn't help its defense in last year's loss to the Volunteers when it had four turnovers and a blocked punt that went for a touchdown.
