Georga senior wide receiver Tavarres King is slowly working himself back into playing shape after suffering a hamstring injury during bowl practices on campus.

In an interview with Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald, King said that his hamstring is feeling good and that he took the Christmas break to rest and try to get his hamstring back to 100 percent.

The Bulldogs were scheduled to have their first practice in Orlando Wednesday night, and King said that he wanted to try and be as close to normal as possible, telling Weiszer,

"I got the rest over the break, got my (hamstring) right," King said. "Hopefully I can go out there and do everything I normally do on a practice day."

King has been one of the top targets for quarterback Aaron Murray this year, leading the Bulldogs with 846 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. King is also second on the team in receptions with 39, just one behind team leader Malcolm Mitchell.

The No. 7 Georgia Bulldogs will take on the No. 16 Nebraska Cornhuskers in the 2013 Capital One Bowl in Orlando, FL.
