Georgia Bulldogs defensive lineman Abry Jones is running again at practice as he tries to return to action in time for the 2013 Capital One Bowl. Jones is still limited from contact, according to Marc Weiszer of Dog Bytes Online. Jones had surgery on his ankle after injuring it against the Kentucky Wildcats on Oct. 20 and missed the rest of the regular season.

Other Bulldogs that were limited at Tuesday's practice included wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell with a strained groin, linebacker Mike Gilliard with a strained hamstring and wide receiver Rhett McGowan with a sprained wrist. Those that missed practice for the Bulldogs include nose guard John Jenkins with a concussion, running back Richard Samuel IV with a separated shoulder and wide receiver Tavarres King with a strained hamstring.

The Bulldogs play the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Capital One Bowl at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla. on New Year's Day. Kickoff for the game is scheduled for 1 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on ABC.
