Richt says Cox to stay as UGA's starting QB

By  | 

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia coach Mark Richt has announced that
Joe Cox will continue as starting quarterback for the Bulldogs.

Richt released a statement Monday saying staff members
unanimously decided that Cox gives the team its best chance to win.
Still, he said sophomore Logan Gray will get some playing time at
quarterback this week.

There were questions about Cox' position after he was booted
from a 41-17 loss to top-ranked Florida on Saturday after throwing
three interceptions. Gray also struggled, throwing an interception
that was returned for a touchdown.

Richt said A.J. Green suffered a pulmonary contusion Saturday
and will not play in this week's game against Tennessee Tech. He
said Clint Boling is probable with a knee contusion and Justin
Houston is doubtful after suffering a hyper extended elbow.
