Troy Week: Wednesday News and Notes

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

BAILEY IN MIX: Senior wide receiver Sean Bailey still plans to play but for how long this week and for how much longer this season is anybody's guess.

Bailey, Georgia's leading receiver with 22 catches for 334 yards, has torn meniscus cartilage in his left knee but will try to put off surgery until the end of the season.

"It being my senior season I don't want to go get surgery and miss it so I'm going to play and put it in the Lord's hands," Bailey said. "If it's meant for me to make it through the season I will, and if not I will get the surgery."

Bailey will start against Troy if he can practice today, wide receivers coach John Eason said, but Eason doesn't expect him to be able to handle his normal workload. Demiko Goodman, Kris Durham and Kenneth Harris will get more snaps with Bailey limited, Eason said.

TWO MORE RECRUITS: After receiving two more verbal commitments for the recruiting class of 2008, Georgia is almost done with its class more than three months before national signing day.

"That's just about it unless somebody bails out," Richt said.

Georgia will try to finish off its class with two offensive tackles, Richt said.

On Wednesday, Heard County running back Dontavius Jackson and Westside of Augusta athlete Sanders Commings made verbal commitments to Georgia.

Jackson, who is ranked the nation's No. 12 running back by, also was being recruited by LSU, Alabama, Clemson and Penn State.

Commings is rated as a three-star prospect at cornerback by, but he could play several positions in college. He chose the Bulldogs over South Carolina, Florida and Auburn.

Jackson and Commings give Georgia commitments from 24 players. None of Georgia's commitments are binding until players sign a letter of intent in February. Teams are allowed to bring in 25 new players each August.
