Abry Jones injury: Georgia DE back in the mix

Kevin C. Cox

The senior defensive end will see action for the Bulldogs for the first time since late October when he plays in the Capital One Bowl.

Georgia Bulldogs senior defensive end Abry Jones is back in action for the first time since October, as the Bulldogs staff deals with the absence of star lineman John Jenkins.

Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald reports that Jones worked on the scout team on Thursday in preparation for Georgia's Capital One Bowl matchup against the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Jones amassed 14 tackles in his first six games of the 2012 season before he was knocked out of action by an ankle injury that required surgery. Last year, Jones rolled up 47 tackles and four sacks for Georgia, starting all 14 games for the Bulldogs..

Jones' return comes at just the right time for the Bulldogs, who will be without Jenkins because of academic reasons. Jenkins had recorded 50 tackles in 2012, good for ninth-most on the team; he also had two sacks and two forced fumbles. Jones and the Bulldogs will have their hands full trying to slow down a Nebraska rushing attack that ranked eighth in the country with 254.5 yards per game this season.
