Jones' ankle injury may heal in time for Georgia's bowl game.

Injured Georgia Bulldogs defensive end Abry Jones could return in time to play in the team's bowl game, according to head coach Mark Richt. "Abry's not out. Abry's lost significant time. But we do believe he's got a good shot of playing in the bowl," Richt said.

Jones injured an ankle earlier in the season and had surgery last month. He was initially pronounced out for the season by Richt.

Prior to the injury, Jones had accumulated 17 tackles, including one for a loss, as well as four quarterback hurries. He started all 14 games for the Bulldogs last season, and finished the year with 48 tackles, including four sacks. Over the course of his collegiate career, Jones has appeared in 39 games, making 20 starts. He had 89 career tackles heading into the 2012 season; 2011 was his first as a regular starter for Georgia.

The Bulldogs host Georgia Southern this Saturday.
