Florida Week: Monday News and Notes

ATHENS - Josh Kendall's news and notes from Georgia's fall practices.

MASSAQUOI DEMOTED: Wide receiver Demiko Goodman has taken Mohamed Massaquoi's starting spot, Massaquoi said Monday. Massaquoi dropped two passes and fumbled against Mississippi State on Saturday.

Kenneth Harris, who had four catches for 106 yards Saturday, also practiced with the first team Monday in the spot normally held by A.J. Bryant, but Harris doesn't think he has been promoted, he said.

"I don't think I'm going to be back in the starting role because it's just one game," he said. "I was just filling in."

Bryant didn't attend Monday's practice.

INJURY UPDATE: The injury news is mixed for Georgia. Starting tight end Martrez Milner (turf toe) appears the least likely to return to action this week against Florida. Milner dressed out for practice but did not participate. He expects to dress out for Saturday's game but doesn't know if he'll be effective.

"It's hurting real bad," he said. "I can't cut off my left foot. I'll see how much I can do, but it's too early to tell. Right now, it's killing me."

Offensive lineman Chester Adams (ankle), on the other hand, is expecting to be back near 100 percent for the game, he said.

"The more I practiced, the more it loosened up, so I feel pretty good about it," he said

Cornerback Ramarcus Brown (hamstring) also said he will play and expects to return to his starting role.

SEC HONOR: Quarterback Matthew Stafford was named the SEC's freshman of the week Monday, two days after setting season highs in completions (20), attempts (32), yards (267) and touchdowns (two) during a 27-24 victory. Stafford is the second Bulldog quarterback to be so honored. Joe Cox earned the same recognition for his game against Colorado.

Stafford is now 67-of-125 passing for 849 yards, three touchdowns and seven interceptions this season.

THIS AND THAT: Georgia's Nov. 4 game against Kentucky will not be broadcast on live television and will kick off at 1 p.m. … Florida coach Urban Meyer is 19-2 in games following an open date, which the Gators had last week. … Florida is favored by 14 points.
