Tennessee Week: Monday News and Notes

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

INJURY UPDATE: Middle linebacker Marcus Washington, who is third on the team with 23 tackles, will miss at least this week's game and possibly the Oct. 13 game against Vanderbilt due to a separated shoulder, he said Monday. Washington was injured against Ole Miss.

Safety Kelin Johnson, who suffered a concussion and right shoulder injury against Ole Miss, doesn't expect to see any contact in today's practice but said he definitely will play against the Volunteers.

Offensive lineman Scott Haverkamp did not practice Monday, a fact which became clear when he didn't show up for post-practice interviews. Offensive line coach Stacy Searels won't allow Haverkamp to speak to the media until he is able to practice. The junior started the first three games of the year at guard but has missed the last two games due to an ankle injury.

BROWN HONORED: Senior running back Thomas Brown was named the SEC's offensive player of the week Monday after his 180-yard, three-touchdown performance against Ole Miss on Saturday.

Brown, who averaged 11.2 yards per carry, became the first Bulldog to rush for more than 150 yards in a game since Verron Haynes in 2001. Brown needs 299 more yards to move into the school's top five all-time in rushing yards. His eights touchdowns (six rushing, two receiving) tie his single-season best set his freshman season.

NASHVILLE NIGHTS: Georgia's Oct. 13 game against Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn., has been scheduled for 6 p.m. and will be televised by ESPN2.
