2008 Fall Camp: Day Seven News and Notes

ATHENS - David Hale's news and notes from Georgia's fall camp.

BLACK AND BLUE: Richt said wide receiver Mohamed Massaqui was bothered by a sore knee, but said the injury was not serious, and Massaquoi did participate in Monday's scrimmage on a limited basis.

Defensive end Jeremy Lomax is suffering from a turf toe injury, Richt said, and did not scrimmage with the defense Monday. Running back Knowshon Moreno, who has been battling a sore shoulder, also missed Monday's action.

With safety Quintin Banks out with an MCL tear, his potential replacements showed signs of progress, Richt said. Redshirt freshman John Knox tallied four tackles and freshman Bacarri Rambo racked up six stops and a pass break-up during Monday's scrimmage.

JUST FOR KICKS: Freshman kicker Blair Walsh is off to a good start in his effort to win the starting kicker job, replacing the departed Brandon Coutu.

Walsh hit all three of his kicks in Monday's scrimmage, including field goals from 36, 37 and 38 yards.

"One of the field goals Walsh made was in the one-minute drill," Richt said. "We needed a field goal to win that drill, and we were in range, and he made it."

Sophomore Andrew Jensen, Walsh's primary competition for the starting job, also converted on his lone attempt, a 36-yarder.

EXTRA POINTS: Senior cornerback Ramarcus Brown led all Georgia defenders with 10 tackles in the afternoon scrimmage… Freshman wide receiver A. J. Green continued to impress coaches by hauling in three catches for 28 yards early in the scrimmage, but sat out the latter part of the action with a hip flexor injury… Stafford finished the scrimmage 11-for-21 for 108 yards and an interception, but also led the first-team offense on three scoring drives… Back-up quarterback Logan Gray completed 12 of 22 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown.
