Kentucky Week: Wednesday Practice Report

ATHENS - Georgia practiced for two hours Wednesday as they get set for their upcoming game with Kentucky (6-3, 2-3 SEC) in Lexington.

Head coach Mark Richt said following the workout that the Bulldogs had another good day and at this point feels the team is on the right track.

"The coaches and players have moved on, you have to because the clock is ticking," said Richt. "You've got to get ready, and if you're not, you're in trouble. I'm glad we don't have an open date."

Georgia has had its share of close games with the Wildcats in Lexington. Five of the last seven trips to the Commonwealth have resulted in games where the margin of victory was seven points or less. In 2006, Kentucky posted a 24-20 win over the Bulldogs, their first over Georgia since 1996. Last year in Athens, Georgia registered a 24-13 victory.

Richt provided an update on the playing status of several Bulldogs for Saturday, saying senior defensive end Jeremy Lomax is questionable while sophomore linebacker Darius Dewberry is doubtful and sophomore safety Quintin Banks "will not be ready anytime soon."

"Quintin has done a fantastic job coaching his teammates," said Richt. "He's helping out the safeties like John Knox, he's in to it, trying to lead and help the team win."
