Tuesday's practice came and went with little new information on the status of wide receiver Fred Gibson.
The junior pulled a hamstring during a late kickoff return Saturday in the win
over Middle Tennessee State, and had treatment Sunday and Monday. Gibson ran
some more on Tuesday and didn't practice. Richt and receivers coach John Eason
said at least he hasn't digressed. Richt reiterated that it's still a
"Fred jogged. jogged a mile (Monday), that was it," he said. "He
was fine jogging. We didn't want him to take off into a sprint because it was
tender. ... Right now, we're being cautious."
Gibson didn't practice but resumed treatment during the Bulldogs' workout. Richt
said Gibson would need to practice Thursday to be effective Saturday, but
cautioned against rushing things.
"Fred's never pulled a hamstring before," Richt said. "Usually a
guy that pulls a hamstring, when it begins to heal, it feels good. Then he goes
full speed and re-injures it. You almost need it to feel good for a few days
before you really cut it loose."
