ATHENS — Georgia receiver and kick returner Isaiah McKenzie has yet to practice this week and is questionable for Saturday’s game at Georgia.
McKenzie missed most of the second half of last Saturday’s win over Georgia Southern with a foot injury.
“We haven’t counted him out yet, so we’ll see,” coach Mark Richt said during Wednesday’s SEC teleconference.
McKenzie is the team’s biggest special-teams threat, having returned five punts or kickoffs for touchdowns, tied for the most in school history. He’s also emerged as one of the team’s top offensive threats, scoring an offensive touchdown in each of the past two games.
The outlook is slightly better for freshman defensive lineman Trent Thompson, who missed the Georgia Southern game because of pain in both ankles. Thompson did practice on Tuesday and “seemed like he’s close to being ready,” according to Richt.
“Trent’s closer to being ready than Isaiah,” Richt said, adding that they’re still holding out hope for each to play. “We’re still treating both of those guys and trying to get them going.”
Georgia will practice Wednesday afternoon, then hold a Thursday morning practice before breaking for Thanksgiving Day.
