Hicks to Stay at TE; "Knows" FB

ATHENS - Georgia finally confirmed on Thursday that fullback Merritt Hall has been medically disqualified “by the UGA sports medicine staff for recurrent concussions.”

The junior sustained a concussion last week in practice and has multiple concussions in high school and at Georgia, the school said.

Meanwhile, while Richt likes what he’s seen from Detric Bing-Dukes after his move from inside linebacker, Quayvon Hicks remains an option at fullback.

“If need be, Quayvon can do it as well,” Richt said. “I don’t think we’re going to move Quayvon back to fullback right now anyway. But him being in there as a tight end, he can easily shift to a fullback position and know what to do. He’s maintained a lot of that knowledge of what the fullback position’s about. We think he can still play some fullback snaps without changing rooms and changing his coach.”
