2006 Spring Football: Day 7 News and Notes

ATHENS - News and notes from Georgia's spring practices.

PRACTICE REPORT: The Bulldogs worked out for a little more than an hour under brisk conditions Friday afternoon.

"I don't know what to say other than it was cold and windy, and I was glad to hear that horn blow so I could run in here," Richt said.

Stafford had touchdown passes to wide receiver Mikey Henderson on a 40-plus yard throw and tight end Coleman Watson in a red zone drill. Cox also threw two scores, one to wide receiver Mario Raley and one to tight end Tripp Chandler. Tereshinski had a touchdown pass to Raley as well.

The day was mostly ruled by defense, though, Richt said. Redshirt freshman safety Donavon Baldwin had two interceptions and linebacker Tommy Watkins of Statesboro had one.

Junior defensive end Marcus Howard sat out due to a hyperextended elbow. He hopes to compete in today's scrimmage but could be out a week. Running back Kregg Lumpkin also was in a green, no-contact jersey but is expected to play today.

BETTER FEELING: Mammoth defensive tackle Kade Weston was frustrated last year as he sat out a redshirt season, but he now believes it was for the best.

"Looking back, I think that was the best thing for me," he said. "I still have a lot to do, like catching on to my fundamentals so it becomes like second nature."
