Off Week: Tuesday News and Notes

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

REMEMBER ME?

Kiante Tripp started the first three games of the season for Georgia at left tackle, but the sophomore had virtually disappeared from the Bulldogs' depth chart prior to Anderson's injury.

Tripp found his way into the lineup on several series against Auburn last week, however, and Richt said he looked good despite the limited role.

"He didn't play a lot, but he did well," Richt said. "I'm not going to promise, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him to get a few more reps during the game because he did well."

STAYING OR GOING?

It may not be a firm commitment given the smirk on his face, but Georgia cornerback Asher Allen insists he's sticking around for another season of college football, despite being listed as one of the top junior corners in the country.

"I'm just chillin'," Allen said. "I've got to enjoy college. I'm just really, really enjoying it."

HEALTHY ENOUGH

Tight end Tripp Chandler missed three games earlier this season with a shoulder injury and was sidelined for much of the Auburn game last week with a knee injury, but Richt said he expects the senior to be out on the field when the Bulldogs play their final home game against Georgia Tech in two weeks.

"I don't think he has any injury that would keep him from playing," Richt said. "He'll be ready to play in the game, but I'm not positive whether he'll be able to practice full speed (today)."
