Florida Atlantic Vs. Georgia: Blake Tibbs Could Play In 2012

Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Blake Tibbs has yet to play in a game this season, which means he is still eligible for a redshirt. Head coach Mark Richt and his staff have not decided if they will use Tibbs this season:

"He's one guy who hasn't played a snap yet, but before it's over, he might and he might not," Richt said.

Richt compared Tibbs' situation to Chris Conley's in 2011. Conley did not play in the team's first three games last season, but appeared in the final 11 contests after injuries forced Georgia's hand. Georgia has been hindered by injuries in the early stages of 2012, but those have primarily been on the defensive side of the ball.

Florida Atlantic Vs. Georgia: Bulldogs Looking For Improvement From John Theus

Georgia spoiled Missouri's SEC debut over the weekend, but the win didn't come without some issues for the Bulldogs. Freshman offensive lineman John Theus after battling an ankle injury all week, committed three false start penalties in the contest and also missed some assignments, according to offensive coordinator Mike Bobo:

"He went through some adversity in the game the other night. A couple of missed blocks and missed assignments. The guy continued to play hard and play physical. We've just got to get him out to practice this week so he can get better."
