A few more notes: Murray, Thompkins injury updates

Ahhhhh … first pumpkin spike latte’ of the year from Starbucks. Now it’s finally starting to feel like winter.

Here are a few notes to perhaps warm up your Monday afternoon.

- Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray has a bruised sternum and bruised knee, according to head trainer Ron Courson, the team announced. Murray’s status is day-to-day.

Murray’s status bears watching, but I’m not sure it’s anything to get worked up about, especially since the Bulldogs don’t play until next week.

- In more injury news, Georgia men’s basketball star Trey Thompkins hasn’t been cleared to practice yet. He is out for Tuesday’s game against Colorado, and probably for this weekend’s game at Saint Louis.

When asked if next week’s Old Spice Classic was a good target for Thompkins’ return, head coach Mark Fox said it was something “to hope for.” Thompkins has a high ankle sprain.

Fox seemed a bit concerned at Thompkins’ lack of progress the past few days, saying the player has “plateuad a bit.” But that doesn’t mean there’s been a setback.

“If there’s a time of year for it to happen, it’s now,” Fox said. “But we’ve got some tough games on the schedule and we’ve gotta get him back.”

- A.J. Green has been named one of 10 semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation’s top receiver. In seven games this year, the junior has 41 catches for 674 yards and nine touchdowns.

- Georgia’s baseball program signed six more players, including the son of a former major league slugger. Dante Bichette Jr., from Orlando, Fla., is a right-handed hitter, much like his father. Bichette Sr. hit 274 home runs in 14 years in the majors, most notably with Colorado.
