Randall Cobb – the Kentucky player whom Georgia frets the most — is “questionable” for Saturday’s game in Athens, UK coach Rich Brooks announced Wednesday night.
Cobb sat out Tuesday’s practice and could not complete all of Wednesday’s because of a bruised shoulder sustained against Vanderbilt last week.
Starting at quarterback against Georgia last year, Cobb ran the ball 18 times for 82 yards and three touchdowns, as well as completing 12 of 20 passes for 105 yards. He has been used primarily at wide receiver this season but also takes direct snaps at quarterback and returns punts and kickoffs. He is second in the SEC in touchdowns with 12 (7 rushing, 4 passing, 1 returning) and third in all-purpose yards (148.1 per game).
“He might be the most talented player in the Southeastern Conference today,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said earlier this week. “We know what he did last year. He just about single-handedly beat us himself.”
Despite Cobb’s dazzling game, Georgia managed to win 42-38 in Lexington last year.
By the way, here’s an item I posted Wednesday night on Reshad Jones‘ plan to consider entering the NFL draft after Georgia’s season.
