Auburn Week: Sunday News and Notes

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

Notable: Georgia head coach Mark Richt will continue to talk to quarterback Matthew Stafford about finishing his runs, Richt said. Stafford suffered a slightly bruised knee Saturday when he went down awkwardly after a scramble, something he almost always does. "You just want to be a little more compact when you get toward the end of the run," Richt said. "I don't have any problem with him sliding, at least be in a position where he is not so upright." … Georgia is No. 10 in the BCS standings for the second straight week.

Quotable: "This is the case of two teams that started off a little slow and have kind of found themselves. I think it's going to be a heck of a game." – Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville

Injuries: Georgia is hopeful to get former starters Thomas Brown and Kelin Johnson back in time for this game. Brown has been out since the Oct. 6 game against Tennessee due to a broken collarbone. If he can practice with contact Tuesday, he'll likely play. Johnson missed Saturday's game due to a knee injury and is optimistic he'll be back. "We just have to see how he responds," Richt said. Defensive tackle Kade Weston suffered an ankle injury against Troy but is expected to play against Auburn. Redshirt freshman safety Quintin Banks is questionable due to a knee injury, and wide receiver Tony Wilson may miss practice time due to a bruised shoulder. Reserve linebacker Chris Gaunder, a former walk-on, probably won't return until the bowl game due to a knee injury.
