Georgia freshman defensive back Rico McGraw’s status for Saturday’s game against Alabama remains unclear, head coach Mark Richt said during his Sunday teleconference.
McGraw underwent an arthroscopic procedure to repair an injured meniscus a couple of weeks ago. McGraw missed both the South Carolina and Southern games as a result.
Asked about McGraw’s status, Richt said that while he’s improved, he doesn’t know whether he’ll be available against Alabama.
“He’s moving along in the right direction but I don’t know if it will be quick enough for him to play or not,” Richt said.
For the season, McGraw has five tackles and one quarterback hurry.
McGraw was Georgia’s top option at the star position to start the year. Since he’s missed the last two games, junior Quincy Mauger has manned the star and freshman Johnathan Abram has played safety. Defensive back Reggie Wilkerson has worked into the mix, too.
