"I felt a little better today after I got a little used to the club,'' Foster said of the cast he wears on the field to protect his surgically reparied right wrist.
"It's kind of heavy so it tends to drop, and I've had to get used to that,'' Foster said.
Foster, a senior, started nine games last season and was again expected to serve as a co-starter with senior Kareem Marshall at split tackle this season. He returned to practice Tuesday about four weeks earlier than at first projected when he suffered the injury in a car accident the first week of August.
"Everything is go right now. I don't see any setbacks. ... We'll just play it by ear. We're not going to just throw him in there all at once.''
Added Coach Mark Richt: "(Foster) is gaining confidence. I don't know how game-ready he is for a game like this. Hopefully he'll continue to get more confidence as the week goes on.''
