ATHENS — Mark Richt didn’t have any news Sunday night on two injured Georgia players. But that, Richt hoped, was good news.
Right guard Greg Pyke left Saturday’s win with a knee injury, and James DeLoach left with what appeared to be a lower leg injury.
Richt was traveling back from the West Coast on Sunday so he had not received an official update from head athletic trainer Ron Courson. But Richt thought Courson would have let him know if either case was serious.
“I really don’t know for sure on either one of those guys. I don’t think it was anything that will require surgery or anything like that. I think Ron would have let me know somehow, texted me, tried to get a hold of me if it was something really big,” Richt said.
That could still mean either player, or others injured on Saturday, could miss time, Richt added. He would get an official update from Courson later on Sunday night.
Pyke, a junior, has started all but one game this year at right guard. Dyshon Sims, a sophomore, started the other game and subbed in for him when he was hurt.
DeLoach, a senior, has emerged as a strong contributor on the defensive line.
