Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Jarvis Jones returned to practice on Monday, according to the Athens Banner-Herald.

Coach Mark Richt said on his radio show that Jones, who missed the Kentucky game with a sprained ankle, "looked pretty good. I feel like we'll have a good chance to get him in the game."

Jones was injured during the South Carolina game two weeks ago. Without Jones on Saturday, Georgia squeaked out a 29-24 win over Kentucky.

With No. 3 Florida on the schedule for Saturday, the Bulldogs would like to get Jones back. He has 37 tackles and 5.5 sacks in five games this season. He also has 9.5 tackles for loss and 15 quarterback hurries.

Richt also said he doesn't think defensive end Abry Jones will play against Florida because of a left ankle injury. Abry Jones did not practice Monday.

If Jarvis Jones returns and Abry Jones is out, Cornelius Washington could play defensive end for Georgia.

Jarvis Jones was an All-American last season. He was named a semifinalist for the Butkus Award for the nation's best linebacker on Monday.

Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET for Saturday's game in Georgia.
