Adams & Turner remain questionable

ATHENS – Georgia's offensive line was without starting guard Chester Adams again Tuesday, but offensive line coach Neil Callaway thinks Adams will be ready to play this weekend.

Adams also missed Monday's practice after being taken to the hospital due to an illness.

"They've checked two or three different things," Callaway said. "We think he'll be fine."

Without Adams and Michael Turner, who remains questionable due to an ankle injury, Callaway would have just one scholarship offensive lineman, center Ian Smith, available on his second team for Saturday's Colorado game. Turner did not practice Tuesday.

Wide receiver Mario Raley, who has a bursa sac injury on his right elbow, was downgraded to questionable.

"If the swelling goes down by (today), he might play in the game," Coach Mark Richt said.

Defensive tackle Ray Gant (foot) also missed practice but was hopeful he would get a clean bill of health from team doctors in time for today's practice.

"I ran around today doing everything I would normally do, and it feels fine," he said.

Gant also thought he would be able to play last week when he was held out.

"I'm a little more optimistic than they are obviously," Gant said.

Wide receivers Mikey Henderson and Mohammed Massaqoui both practiced and are expected to play. Henderson said Monday he didn't think he would return punts, but Richt said Tuesday he might if he feels good enough.

Henderson said he would feel more comfortable not returning kicks.
