Georgia State will be bolstered by the return of several players for this week’s game against Murray State who have missed all or parts of some of the past few games.
Center Ben Jacoby (knee), injured during the loss to Old Dominion, will return. Saftey Brandon Jones (undisclosed), who has missed the past two games, is healthy. Wide receiver Jordan Giles and tackle Clyde Yandell, who picked up injuries in the recent loss to Houston, should be back, as should running back Donald Russell (knee), who missed the Houston game after suffering a minor injury in practice. Wide receiver Albert Wilson (hamstring), the team’s fastest player, is doubtful.
Bo Schlechter may also punt for the first time since the season-opening win against Clark Atlanta. He has played quarterback but hasn’t been able to punt because of a foot injury.
Drew Little and Kelton Hill will split time at quarterback, but Curry said it hadn’t yet been decided how much either will play. He said that will depend upon situations.
The two split most of the snaps in the loss to Houston. It was the most playing time either had received this season. Schlechter started and played most of the first three games. He has received some snaps in practice this week, according to Curry.
After an outstanding 2010 season in which he passed for more than 2,100 yards with 18 touchdowns, Little is off to a slower start in 2011. He has passed for 240 yards and has more interceptions (4) than touchdowns (0).
