Jenkins did not play against Missouri due to a strained hip flexor and saw limited action against Tennessee because of the injury.
Richt said on his radio show Monday night that he thinks Jenkins, wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring) and defensive lineman Chris Mayes (knee) and John Atkins(foot) “will be able to come back and play for us,” Saturday against Florida.
“That’s a good sign,” Richt said.
Jenkins leads the team with seven and a half tackles for loss and is tied for the team lead with three sacks.
The off week for Georgia also allowed starting center Brandon Kublanow time to get better after playing through a sprained ankle.
“I think I’m 100 percent,” Kublanow said. “I got a chance to get some rest, which helped a lot. Feeling good.”
He downplayed the ankle affecting him.
“He definitely looked good out there today,” offensive tackle John Theus said. “He’s back to his normal self, making calls. We didn’t miss a beat.”
Richt said that tight end Jay Rome (ankle), receiver Reggie Davis (thigh) and defensive lineman Trenton Thompson (ankle) also got a chance to get healthier. All are expected to play.
