Abry Jones injury: Bulldogs hopeful DE can return for bowl game

Kevin C. Cox

Jones missed a significant portion of the regular season after undergoing ankle surgery, but there is a chance he'll be healthy enough to play against Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl.

Georgia Bulldogs defensive end Abry Jones missed his team's first bowl practice Wednesday, but head coach Mark Richt said the senior hasn't been ruled out for the game.

"I know his intention is to rehab and get ready to play," Richt said. "He was making progress towards that goal. Do I know whether he’ll be ready to or not? I don’t know that. We’ve not counted him out by any means."

Jones suffered an ankle injury in October and underwent surgery shortly thereafter, ending his season. He had 17 tackles prior to the injury, including one for a loss. He started all 14 games for Georgia in 2011, finishing that year with 48 tackles, including four sacks. He appeared in more than 40 games over the course of his Georgia career.

The Bulldogs are up against the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the 2013 Capital One Bowl, which is scheduled for Jan. 1.
