"We're cross training him," Garner said. "It's a chance to make us more athletic."
CONFIRMATION: Brandon Miller's move back to strongside linebacker got a little more official Tuesday.
"Brandon really has played more Sam lately," Richt said. "If it happened today, we'd probably play (Dannell) Ellerbe at (middle) and Miller at (strong side). He is the guy who is physically dominant. He quite frankly is throwing our tight ends around. Brandon is thrashing everybody right now."
Miller is taking the new move in stride.
"I had a good time learning" middle linebacker, he said. "There may come a time when I have to move back and play (middle) so if I do, now I'm more equipped."
INJURY UPDATE: Redshirt freshman safety Reshad Jones expects to be back full speed at practice today or Thursday. He has missed the last two days due to a bruised knee. Even missing two days is tough on Jones, who is struggling to master Georgia's defensive schemes, defensive coordinator Willie Martinez said.
"There's so much information thrown at us during the fall," Jones said. "I'm really on the sideline watching and learning, just trying to learn everything I can while I'm out."
"We were able to help three young men who have been busting their tails for us," Richt said.
