Sanders, Mauger good to go for Saturday

ATHENS - Georgia’s secondary had a couple of players practice in non-contact jerseys Wednesday, but Richt expects them both to be ready Saturday.

Freshman Dominick Sanders sustained a bruised shoulder in practice Tuesday. Safety Quincy Mauger has practiced this week non-contact after sustaining an injury in Saturday’s game, Richt said.

“They’ll both play,” Richt said.

Sanders has started every game this season. He has 15 tackles, an interception and two pass breakups. Mauger, a sophomore who has started two games, had two interceptions against Missouri and has 17 tackles and a pass breakup.

  This and that

Tailback Keith Marshall is doubtful for Saturday’s game, Richt said, but has progressed in practice this week after missing three games with a sprained ankle and sprained knee.

J.J. Green is “learning quickly” again after returning from safety to tailback this week. “I think he can help us in a pinch,” Richt said. “The more he proves what to do the better chance he has of getting in there.” Richt said Green realizes the move to offense “is a short-term deal,” and is fine with it if it can help the team win.

Arkansas still had 2,400 tickets remaining for Saturday’s game on Wednesday. “Hopefully we can get that taken care of,” coach Bret Bielema said.
