Rundown: Tamburo, Rambo, Samuel & More

ATHENS - A few quick hitters from Georgia's practice Monday.

1. Former Boise State quarterback Michael Tamburo, who transferred to Georgia this offseason, is currently running the scout team offense.

"I'm pretty comfortable with the offense," Tamburo said. "I know it. I know where to go with the ball or whatever. I mean, pretty much I'm just trying to do what the coaches are telling me because they've seen it on film and know the looks they want. I don't get involved with what they want me to do, but I do have a good idea of what to look for."

2. Richard Samuel missed practice Monday, but coach Mark Richt called Samuel the projected starter for Saturday's game against Boise State.

"Anybody who would be a projected starter and knows what to do, you'd wait until game time to decide on guys like that," Richt said. "Hopefully we don't have to wait that long on him. He's been the projected starter. Today he's still our projected starter until we find out something different."

3. Safety Bacarri Rambo's absense from the starting lineup has some questioning his status for the Boise State game. When asked if Rambo was suspended for the game, Richt said:

"I'm not going to address that. At the appropriate time if anybody is like that, I'll let you know."

4. Wide receiver Marlon Brown returned to practice Monday after missing a week with an ankle injury. Despite the time on the sideline, Brown said he feels poised to breakout this season. His hard work to improve began before spring practice, he said.

"Forget spring, I'm talking about winter, man," Brown said. "I worked hard in January in the weight room, just watching more film of me last year and got in the training room and started stretching some more. I've gotten more flexible. I'm ready, man."

5. John Jenkins, Bruce Figgins and Ken Malcome (no-contact) returned to practice Monday. Branden Smith (foot) and Brandon Harton (unknown) did not go, but Richt said he expected everybody to be able to play against Boise State.
