ATHENS — Georgia coach Mark Richt listed Jordan Jenkins and Isaiah McKenzie as questionable for the Florida game.
Richt was asked about the availability of the star players during his time on the SEC’s weekly conference call on Wednesday.
“Isaiah was working yesterday and I think he got a little sore,” Richt said. “I don’t think it’s anything to worry about. My guess, I’d have to probably still say questionable. I’m optimistic right now, but I could say to be honest with you.”
Jenkins, a senior outside linebacker and all-conference candidate, missed the Missouri game and most of the Tennessee game with a groin/hip flexor issue. McKenzie, a sophomore receiver and kick-return specialist, has missed the last two games since aggravating a chronic hamstring injury in the Alabama game three weeks ago.
Richt expects everybody else, except tailback Nick Chubb, to be available against the Gators, who Georgia meets in their annual neutral site matchup in Jacksonville on Oct. 31.
Richt said Chubb continues to rehab his injured left knee and expects him to undergo surgery “within the next week.”
Richt still would not offer a timeline on a return for the Bulldogs’ star tailback but reiterated that they’re “all optimistic” he’ll be ready to play next season.
