Richt post-practice

Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo will call plays from the field again. Bobo had considered going back up to the press box, but dealing with the young quarterbacks was evidently a big factor in staying on the field.

Head coach Mark Richt said the defensive staff has also decided on who will be where on gamedays, but he wasn't sure on specifics.

- Meantime, the Bulldogs have broken into scout team work, for Louisiana-Lafayette. That’s a bit earlier than they normally would.

“This camp seems a little longer than normal," Richt said. "I think we’re ready to start focusing on someone other than our own team.”

They started earlier than they ever had, in order to accommodate the lack of more two-a-days.

That doesn’t mean everybody on the scout team now will be in the future, Richt added.

- Injury updates: If you’ve been hurt, you’re basically expected to return the week of the opener. In fact, inside linebacker Akeem Dent’s prognosis has improved again to where he could see live action in practice next week. Richt said the staff was “100 percent certain” Dent will practice the week of the opener.

- ILB Mike Gilliard (hamstring) is also very close. Cordy Glenn (mononucleosis) is targeted for the last week, along with Ben Jones (knee).

- Receiver Logan Gray is out 7-10 days after spraining his ankle. That’s a setback for a guy converting from quarterback who’s had a good camp.

- Richt wasn’t sure safety Nick Williams’ injury. Williams got hurt early in practice, but returned later in a green jersey.

“Whatever it was it wasn’t too severe because he was going full-speed in the end,” Richt said.

- True freshmen who will play: Safety Alec Ogletree almost certainly, while his brother Zander could also play because of his value on special team. CB Derek Owens will play too, especially on special teams.
