A couple notes for you.
1. Neither center Jay Finch (lower leg) nor guard Will Jackson (neck) practiced again Wednesday. Jackson is expected to return Thursday. Coach Paul Johnson told reporters after Wednesday’s practice that Finch will have to return to practice by early next week in order to play in next Thursday’s game against Virginia Tech.
“We think he’s got a chance,” Johnson said of Finch. “He gets better every day, so we’ll see.”
2. Players will be released after Friday’s morning practice, which will start at 6 a.m, and won’t have to report back until Sunday evening. The team will have practices Monday and Tuesday.
“A lot of guys haven’t been home for 13 weeks,” Johnson said. “Some of them want to go home to see their high schools play. They need to get away a little bit.”
