Georgia Vs. LSU 2011: Isaiah Crowell Practicing, Expected To Play Saturday

Georgia's running game is expected to get a boost on Saturday with the return of freshman Isaiah Crowell to the lineup. Crowell missed last week's win against Georgia Tech and all but three plays against Kentucky with an ankle injury. Running backs coach Bryan McClendon said that Crowell has been a full participant in practice this week. 

"I thought he looked good, he came out there and ran around good. He did everything in practice."

The news isn't as good for Richard Samuel who has missed the last four games after ankle surgery. Samuel didn't practice on Monday or Tuesday and is doubtful to play in the game on Saturday. 

Defensive end DeAngelo Tyson hasn't practiced this week due to a sprained ankle but has not been ruled out of Saturday's game just yet. Defensive line coach Rodney Garner went so far as to call Tyson probable. 

"I think there's a chance that we're going to get DeAngelo back," Garner said. "I'd say he's probable moreso than not. 

Freshman offensive lineman Dallas Lee returned to practice this week after missing four games with a broken bone in his leg. Offensive line coach Will Friend said that there is a chance that Lee could play on Saturday.
