Bulldogs Finalize Preparations For Tennessee

More Video: Wednesday's Practice Report

Sept. 26, 2012

ATHENS-----Fifth-ranked Georgia conducted a two-hour practice in jerseys, shoulder pads, shorts and helmets Wednesday. 

Georgia (4-0, 2-0 SEC) will play host to Tennessee (3-1, 0-1 SEC) Saturday at Sanford Stadium. Georgia coach Mark Richt started his post-practice media session saying the physical part of practicing for the week is over and that the Bulldogs had a good day.

"I keep bragging about the scout team, I'm proud of them," said Richt. "They did another good job and competed well. I thought our throwing and catching was pretty good today too.

Richt was asked about the availability of some players for the upcoming game including senior starting defensive end Abry Jones (ankle sprain). Richt indicated he should be ready to go.

"Abry has been a steady, reliable performer for us throughout his career, and he has gotten better," said Richt. He's been a captain a few times and has been a leader."

Jones leads the defense with 18 straight starts and has started 24 games in his career. Also, he served as one of the captains this season against Buffalo and Vanderbilt and will for the Tennessee game.

Talk turned to Tennessee's high-powered offense that is averaging 38.2 points a game. Junior Tyler Bray is at the controls, and he already has tallied more than 1,300 yards passing to go with 12 touchdowns through the first four games.

 "We're going to have to disrupt routes, play man coverage some, do some different things to mix it up because we don't want to be predictable," said Richt. "You have to decide how to play it because certain teams may play super deep and allow underneath stuff and go tackle while others may pressure more up front."

Saturday's kickoff will be at 3:39 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised live nationally on CBS.
