Auburn Week: Monday News and Notes

ATHENS - News and notes from Georgia's practices.

Two other Bulldogs also expressed confidence Monday that they'll be ready to go against Auburn, but, unlike Shockley, they may not start.

Defensive tackle Kedric Golston sat out four of the 20 five-minute segments during practice but only as a precaution.

"I've just got to be smart and not do too much," he said.

Golston hasn't played since the Oct. 15 Vanderbilt game, when he tore the same elbow ligament that requires Tommy John surgery in baseball pitchers. He will play the rest of the year with a brace on his left elbow that keeps his arm from straightening completely.

He said there's no doubt in his mind he'll play, but he indicated Ray Gant may remain in the starting spot.

"I don't know if I feel comfortable taking that from him without getting in the game," Golston said.

Linebacker Brandon Miller, who sat out the Florida game due to a high ankle sprain, participated in every drill.

"I feel a whole lot better," he said. "I don't think I'll be able to start, but I'll be able to back them up."

If Miller doesn't start, Danny Verdun Wheeler will remain as Georgia's starting strongside linebacker.

TV TIME: Jefferson-Pilot has decided to televise the Nov. 19 game between Georgia and Kentucky, which means the game will be kick off at 12:30 p.m. It will be the Bulldogs' second game on JP this year. The first time around, they defeated Arkansas 23-20.
