Green from RB starter to DB starter?

ATHENS - Georgia’s starting tailback for last year’s game at Vanderbilt was J.J. Green.

Green could be starting against the Commodores Saturday at safety after his first start on defense against Tennessee.

Green broke up a pass to Marquez North in the second quarter, but left the game with a bruised leg but he said he practiced Monday.

“I think I played well, but just certain alignment adjustments and certain backpedalling instead of flipping (need to be better),” he said. “Most times I backpedaled the whole time instead of doing what coach taught us but I was about 20 yards deep so I didn’t think I had to open up.”

Green had three tackles in the game.

Richt described Green’s showing as “not bad. He made a couple of plays. He tackled relatively well. He’s a coachable guy, he’s a smart guy. I don’t think there were many crucial, critical errors that he made at all. So he got his feet wet.”
