ATHENS, Ga. - Georgia starting offensive guard Kevin Breedlove is listed as probable for the Nov. 30 game against Georgia Tech after suffering only a sprained knee, instead of a more serious injury, Saturday at Auburn.
Georgia coach Mark Richt feared Sunday that the one bit of bad news from his team's win over Auburn might be losing Breedlove to a knee injury.
In his weekly Sunday teleconference and again Sunday night on his call-in radio show, Richt said he feared Breedlove, a four-year starter, may have suffered a significant knee injury. The fear was Breedlove had suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament and would not play again this year.
Instead, Georgia director of sports medicine Ron Courson said Monday that Breedlove "should be fine" for the game against Tech. Breedlove was found to have a "grade one plus" sprain of his medial collateral ligament in his left knee.
With an off week this week, Breedlove is expected to return next week and be able to play against Tech.
