Abry Jones injury: Mark Richt uncertain if injured DE can contribute

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt does not know if injured defensive end Abry Jones will be able to contribute in the Capital One Bowl against the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Wednesday, or if he'll play at all.

A week ago, Georgia Bulldogs defensive end Abry Jones believed that he would be ready to play in the Capital One Bowl on New Year's Day. Now, its not so certain that he will. Jones has been recovering from ankle surgery after suffering an ankle injury that has kept him out of the last six games.

Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt says that he does not want to play Jones if he's not able to contribute at a good enough level on Wednesday:

He's been working really hard to get back to where he could play. Just what kind of condition is he in and just how quickly can he move. We don't want to put him out there if he's really not ready to play full-speed Georgia football, you know? I'm not 100 percent sure how much he will play."

Jones is likely to be a game-time decision, with how he performs during warm ups a likely indicator as to whether or not he will play in Wednesday's game.

The 2013 Capital One Bowl between the Bulldogs and the Nebraska Cornhuskers will be played at the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla. Kickoff for that game is scheduled for 1 p.m. and the game will be televised on ABC.
