Florida Week: Tuesday News and Notes

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

KING IN LIMBO: Freshman running back Caleb King will travel to Jacksonville with the Bulldogs and could play this weekend. King has practiced with the varsity rather than the scout team this week so he'll be ready just in case.

Georgia coaches have held out King for the first seven games in hope of redshirting him, but that won't affect the decision to put him in the game this week, running backs coach Tony Ball said.

"We're trying to win games," Ball said. "We've got five, six, maybe seven games we have to get ready to play. That's a whole season for a freshman. We're looking at it from the standpoint of, ‘Can he help us win?'"

King is excited about the prospect of playing, he said.

"If I can help my team just one game, I don't think it's a wasted year," he said.

King is optimistic about the chance he will play, he said.

"I've been in a lot more running with the first or second team this week," he said.

Jason Johnson is listed as the No. 2 tailback after starter Knowshon Moreno, and freshman fullback Shaun Chapas also could play the position.

THIS AND THAT: Brandon Miller (calf injury) will start at strong side linebacker if he is healthy, Richt said. Washington will start in the middle, and Dannell Ellerbe will start on the weak side, Richt said. … Mikey Henderson (hamstring) will be healthy enough to return punts this week, Richt said. … Georgia's Dan Magill and Tim Worley will be inducted into the Georgia-Florida Hall of Fame this year. … Florida has won a school-record eight straight games against Georgia, Tennessee and Florida State.
