"With good hope," Drew said. "Any snap is a good snap."
Washington is suspended after his DUI arrest early Sunday morning in Commerce.
Chase Vasser, Reuben Faloughi and Drew are the top candidates to see more playing time. Vasser, who has started two games, has the skill set to drop into coverage while Drew is considered more of a pass rusher.
"We all feel like we're pretty good at pass rushing, but Cornelius is a phenomenal pass rusher," Vasser said of the redshirt junior who has 3 ½ sacks. "That's definitely going to hurt not having him there."
The 6-5, 263-pound Drew, a five-star recruit from Thomasville, has played two games. He has two tackles.
"When the opportunity presents itself, I'm going to take it with two hands and roll with it," Drew said. "One of the strengths to my game is the pass rush game. One thing I think they've wanted to see out of me a little more is the use of my hands, which I believe I've given them the past few days."
"It will be an opportunity for him, certainly" coach Mark Richt said Sunday. "He'll be part of the mix as far as our discussion. …Will Ray be the sole beneficiary of that playing time or a part beneficiary? I don't know."
Boykin banged up
The cornerback practiced in a non-contact jersey Monday, according to Georgia.
Richt said on his radio show Monday night that Boykin got some "teeth wired to keep them in there firm," after his facemask hit his bottom teeth when he landed hard after a third quarter kickoff return.
A teammate also hit Boykin in the back of the head at the end of a punt return, Richt said.
The senior was one of three players given weekly honors by the Paul Hornung Award, which recognizes the most versatile player in college football.
Boykin had six tackles, one for loss, forced a fumble, defected a pass and finished with 88 all-purpose yards coming on 45 yards on three punt returns and 43 on two kickoff returns.
Malcome on his return
For a few hours after he met with Richt last Wednesday to tell him he was leaving the team, reserve tailback Ken Malcome thought about his decision "sitting by the TV light."
He thought: Did he really want to do this?
"You come up here and it's a whole new level," said the redshirt freshman from Decatur. "You're exposed to a lot of things. Things change and things don't go as planned, you just crack, you just pop."
Malcome changed his mind later that night and called Richt, who let him back on the team the next day.
"In my heart, I felt I'm going to be a Bulldog no matter what happens," he said. "I'm back and I know I can play with these guys. I've just got to get healthy."
Upon further review of the TV footage, Richt thinks Isaiah Crowell did not step out of bounds on a 49-yard touchdown run that was whistled back because referees ruled he stepped out bounds.
"If I had to do it again, I would have challenged it or at least asked permission to challenge it but the answer might have been the whistle blew," Richt said
Richt said he will talk to SEC coordinator of officials Steve Shaw today.
For the third time this season, Crowell was named Monday the SEC freshman of the week after rushing for 104 yards Saturday.
"On offense it looks like they found their missing piece and that was a good runner," Tennessee coach Derek Dooley said.
Georgia-Vandy at night
The Southeastern Conference announced Monday that the Oct. 15 game at Vanderbilt will kickoff at 7 p.m ET. The game will be shown on FSN, which airs on Fox Sports South in Georgia.
This and that
Richt said that linebacker Alec Ogletree (foot) isn't ready to return this week. He's hopeful guard Chris Burnette (knee) can play and said cornerback Damian Swann (groin) and receiver Israel Troupe (knee bruise) have "a chance" to play. Receiver Rantavious Wooten (concussion) appears doubtful.
