Andrews 'vital' for offense

ATHENS - Center David Andrews is planning on returning to practice Wednesday after spraining his left ankle on Georgia’s second offensive series against Florida.

“David is vital for our offense,” offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said Tuesday night. “Just more of leadership of him being in there, a guy that kind of holds everybody together. Hunter (Long) did a nice job and Hunter’s preparing to play right now and will be ready if his number is called and we’ll have all the confidence in the world of him."

Andrews, a third-year starter, returned to the game as he played through the injury and shared snaps at center with Long.

“Hunter was next man up and didn’t really change our play-calling,” Bobo said.

 

Rome expected to play after not seeing action against Gators

 

Tight ends Jeb Blazevich and Jordan Davis played against Florida, but redshirt junior Jay Rome did not see action despite making the trip.

Asked if he was fine health-wise, tight ends coach John Lilly said:  “I think he’ll be ready to play this week.”

“It’s kind of how the game went,” Bobo said.

Rome has eight catches for 36 yards and a touchdown after dealing with a foot injury that cut his 2013 season short.

"We just felt like the other guys were more prepared to play,” Richt said. “He'll be okay. He is banged up and a lot of guys are sore right now, but we plan on him being in the game (Saturday).”
