Earlier on Tuesday, Richt met with the media and gave several updates on the Bulldogs while also discussing Tennessee Tech. He announced that wide receiver A.J. Green will miss this weekend's game and that Caleb King will start at tailback.
"We're not 100-percent certain but the history of this type of an injury by the second week everybody has played to this point, so we don't have any reason to think that he won't," Richt said. "I hope that it is an opportunity for guys to know that they've got to make plays, and they do. Unless Tennessee Tech changes drastically, they challenge you to throw to the wide receivers. Those guys are going to have to make plays, and I'm hoping that they do make plays and gain confidence. In the long run, it may end up being a blessing for us to get some guys some more opportunities."
King will supplant Washaun Ealey, who has started Georgia's previous two games.
"Caleb will start at running back," Richt said. "We're not highly disappointed in Washaun at all. Washaun will continue to play, but Caleb has proved to be the one guy at least between him and Washaun that is much stronger in his pass protection right now. He played a pretty solid football game (against Florida)."
