Troy Week: Tuesday News and Notes

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

BAILEY QUESTIONABLE: Senior Sean Bailey, who leads Georgia in receiving with 22 catches for 334 yards, is questionable for Saturday's game with a left knee injury. Bailey did not know the seriousness of the injury Tuesday evening, he said, but was planning to talk to the team's doctors later in the evening.

"There's a little clicking, and it just feels real tight," he said. "It's gotten better every day, but that first night I could barely walk on it."

Bailey didn't practice Tuesday.

PUNT RETURN STILL IN LIMBO: It's still a mystery who will start at punt returner for the Bulldogs, and it will be until Saturday, mainly because assistant coach Jon Fabris coordinates that unit.

Mikey Henderson is the third-leading punt returner in the SEC, but Thomas Flowers has started the last two games while Henderson nurses a hamstring injury.

"There's no guy you say, ‘Hey, he's the starter or whatever,'" Fabris said. "Sometimes you don't even decide until after pre-game warm-ups who will get the first one."

Henderson wants to return to the starting lineup, and he would help his chances if he would tell the team's trainers he is 100 percent healthy.

"Anytime (he says) it's less than 100 percent, you have a hard time letting the guy go," Richt said. "If he gets to that 100 percentile, he'll have a better chance of playing than if he's at 95 percent."

ATTA BOY: Richt has taken calls from friends on Florida State's coaching staff this week regarding his team's first quarter celebration against the Gators, but he declined to pass on what they said.

"Florida State and Florida play later, so I won't say," he said.

STAT OF THE DAY: Troy's game notes point out that Georgia assistant coaches are 2-3 all-time against the Trojans.

"Our coaches kind of got called out there a little bit," Richt said.
