ATHENS – Caleb King had waited close to three years for his chance to be a starting tailback again.
When the opportunity finally arrived, a hamstring injury set him back another six weeks.
The time off was tough, but when King finally returned to action last week against Arkansas, he said the wait was well worth it. "Of course I've got some rust," King said. "That was my first game in a long time that I've played that much. But I'll feel better going into this next game."
King's 11 carries were just one shy of his career high, and he estimates last week's game was the most he's been on the field since an injury ended his senior season in high school in September of 2006.
