“To see him out there is special just because we know how much he loves the game and the impact that he can have,” Theus said. “If he’s able to play or not this week or not, it doesn’t matter. As long as we see him out there (at practice), it’s pretty cool to see.”
Tailback Keith Marshall (ankle) didn’t practice “and is not quite ready right now.” Wait on Missouri kickoff time/TV The kickoff time and TV network for Georgia’s Oct. 11 game at Missouri won’t be determined until after this weekend’s games. CBS is using a six-day option for its game selections for that date. CBS has a doubleheader with games at noon and 3:30 p.m. ET.
CBS picks first for its 3:30 game and ESPN then makes selections for games at 6 p.m. ET and 9 p.m. ET before CBS chooses its 12 p.m. game. The game remaining will be on the SEC Network at 7:30 p.m.
Besides Georgia-Missouri, games behind held are Auburn-Mississippi State, Ole Miss-Texas A&M, LSU-Florida and Alabama-Arkansas.
This and that
Richt on his call-in show fielded a question about if Georgia might rotate quarterbacks. The Bulldogs rank 111th in the nation in passing behind starter Hutson Mason. “I think anything’s possible, but I’m not going to sit here and start trying to tell the whole world what we’re going to do before we even talk to our players about how we’re going to rotate things like that.”
Tailback Sony Michel, Richt said, won’t need surgery for his injured left shoulder that is expected to keep him out a while.
