ATHENS – The news that Florida quarterback Tim Tebow has an injured shoulder has not escaped Georgia linebacker Marcus Washington.

Washington was blunt Tuesday when he indicated any weakness is fair game on the field. The No. 20 Bulldogs and No. 9 Gators play at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in Jacksonville, Fla.

“He has a dinged up shoulder, and we’re going to try to ding it up a little bit more for him, just to see where he’s at, see if he folds,” Washington said.

Defensive players often are aware of the injury report for offenses they face, Washington said.

“You always have it in the back of your mind,” he said. “It’s never the primary game plan to hurt somebody and take them out of the game, but if you know somebody is injured, you’re going to keep it in the back of your mind as you tackle him.”

It may be hard to target one body part during full speed action, but “you can probably try to drag him down and drive him into that shoulder if you possibly can,” Washington said.

Washington will be returning to his starting middle linebacker spot after missing two games due to a shoulder injury, and he doesn’t think the Gators will have any sympathy on him.

“I expect the same thing” Tebow will get, he said.
