Off Week: Tuesday News and Notes

ATHENS - News and notes from Georgia's off week practices.

Defensive tackle Gerald Anderson (concussion) won't return to practice until Monday no matter how quickly he progresses. He watched the first part of Tuesday's practice and is still considered probable for the Oct. 8 Tennessee game.

Tailback Kregg Lumpkin, who had 36 yards on six carries against Mississippi State, practiced in a green, no-contact jersey due to a slightly separated shoulder. He is probable for the Tennessee game. Linebacker Olaolu Sanni-Osomo is still out due to a strained hip flexor

SERENDIPITOUS SCORE: Not only is Danny Ware not the first option on the play he scored a passing touchdown against Mississippi State, he's not an option at all.

"He's nowhere in the thought process," Shockley said.

Ware lined up in the right slot, and his job on the play was to run a post simply to clear out the right side, while Shockley ran a bootleg to the left. However, on Saturday, Shockley was forced back to his right and saw Ware wide open in the end zone just before he tucked his head to scramble.

"Every time we ran that play in practice, (Ware) came back saying, I''m open, I'm open,' and I'd say, ‘Danny, you're not even in the progression.'"

ANOTHER HONOR: For the third consecutive week, Georgia has an SEC lineman of the week, but this time it's a defensive lineman. End Quentin Moses was recognized by the conference Tuesday for his two-sack performance against Mississippi State on Saturday. Moses, who know has four sacks this year, also had a pass deflection in the game.

Bulldog offensive linemen Dennis Roland and Dan Inman were honored the previous two weeks.
