Abry Jones injury update: Georgia DE out for Capital One Bowl

Kevin C. Cox

Georgia senior DE Abry Jones (ankle) has been ruled out hours before the Bulldogs and Nebraska kick off this year's Capital One Bowl.

Georgia Bulldogs defensive end Abry Jones will miss the team's Captial One Bowl game against the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Tuesday while continuing to recover from ankle surgery, according to Seth Emerson of The Macon Telegraph.

Jones' status for the game has been up in the air for weeks. The senior defender initially thought he'd be able to go, but head coach Mark Richt voiced his concerns on Monday about whether or not Jones would be capable of playing at full speed. Richt previously announced that Jones would be a game-time decision, but the Bulldogs have now decided to rule out Jones well before kickoff.

Jones was injured in the Bulldogs' loss to South Carolina on Oct. 6. In six games this season, Jones racked up 17 tackles. His best year was in 2011, when he accounted for 48 tackles, seven of which resulted in lost yardage, and four sacks.

Georgia and Nebraska will kick off the 2013 Capital One Bowl from Orlando, Fla., at 1 p.m. ET.
