Injuries Slow Miller and Green

ATHENS – Two South Carolina Bulldogs were sidelined with injuries today.

Prince Miller, a Duncan, SC native, and much-heralded A.J. Green, from Summerville, SC, missed the second day of Georgia's fall camp. Green thought he reinjured a groin after missing some of yesterday's practice, actually had a hip flexor, which Mark Richt said kept him out of the end of yesterday's practice and all of today's.

"A.J.'s injury is nothing serious, but it was enough to take him out today," Richt said. The head coach did say he was impressed with what he saw Monday. "You can see how he can snatch a ball."

Miller, who was replaced in the number one unit by Bryan Evans, was sidelined with a shoulder injury.

"I just came down on it the wrong way," Miller said. "I was trying to intercept a ball and fell on it the wrong way."

"It will not require surgery," Richt said after Tuesday's session. "We predict that he will miss a week."

Miller said he is also one of the candidates to return punts, but indicated that his chances to win that spot may have suffered a blow after the injury.

"There are lots of guys out there trying to get that spot," Miller said. "Me, Asher, Bryan Evans and Carlton Thomas, too."

Oddly enough the two injured Palmetto State players have developed a bit of a friendly rivalry already.

"We've just been going back and forth during the summer," Miller said. "But it's nothing serious. We are just trying to get each other better, and I think we are."
