ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia freshman tailback Isaiah Crowell
participated in Friday's practice even though he still wore the green jersey reserved for injured players while he continues to recover from a strained groin.
Running backs coach Bryan McClendon says Crowell "did everything from A to Z" in the practice "and did well." Crowell is expected to start in Georgia's Sept. 3 opener against Boise State.
Another tailback, Richard Samuel, is recovering from a strained quadriceps. McClendon says Crowell would "definitely" be ready if
Georgia's opener was this week.
Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo says another top freshman, Malcolm Mitchell, is making a push to be one of the team's top three receivers. Nose tackle John Jenkins left the practice with a mild left hamstring injury.
