Ole Miss Week: Sunday News and Notes

ATHENS - Josh Kendall's news and notes from the day after Georgia's 14-13 win over Colorado.

Notable: For the first time this season, Coach Mark Richt acknowledged Sunday that he will consider changing the tailback rotation, which is bad news for Thomas Brown.

Georgia's starter through the first four games had three carries for minus-7 yards against Colorado and now is averaging 2.9 yards per carry. Second-teamer Kregg Lumpkin played most of the fourth quarter for Georgia and led the team with 52 yards on 12 carries. Third-teamer Danny Ware started the second half. … Saturday's comeback marked the largest fourth-quarter deficit ever erased under Richt. … The 25 points Georgia has surrendered in its first four games is its fewest since 1997 (25). The Bulldogs dropped from second to fourth in the nation in scoring defense (6.3 ppg). … Until Saturday, Georgia had never won a one-point game under Richt.

Injuries: Other than quarterback Joe Tereshinski, who is out due to a high ankle sprain, offensive tackle Michael Turner is the only Bulldog who isn't probable for this week's game. Even Turner (ankle) could see the field against Ole Miss after missing the last two games, Richt said. Defensive tackle Ray Gant (foot), wide receiver Mario Raley (elbow) and cornerback Asher Allen (toe) are expected to play, Richt said.
