While early-season injuries aren’t the way Brendan Douglas hoped to make himself a household name at Georgia, he certainly relishes the opportunity to showcase what he can do at this level.
Aside from a costly red zone fumble against Missouri last weekend, he finished the game with 113 all-purpose yards on 20 touches—adding to his prowess as a legitimate receiving threat; an element to the Georgia offense that took a legitimate hit with the loss of Keith Marshall.
Looking ahead to Saturday, I expect to see Douglas continue to make a hefty contribution to the receiving game (after his big catch and run at Tennessee, you could almost see the week he had against Missouri coming to fruition) as it’s not yet known how effective Jonathon Rumph will be in his first official game of the season.
“Jonathon Rumph is practicing. I don’t think there’s much doubt he’ll play, but he’s really not played for us yet. By the end of the week, we’ll see how comfortable he is and how comfortable we are with what he knows and if we think he can execute. He was here in the spring, which is great that he’s been here all this time, but he doesn’t have a lot of reps early in his career. As a junior college guy, he’s still young with us, so we’re just not sure how many plays he’ll play, but we want to get him going, that’s for sure.” (Mark Richt, from his Tuesday Press Conference, 10/15/13)
