The Georgia Bulldogs haven’t had the season they would have hoped for so far. The team lost two straight games, essentially knocking them out of contention for the College Football Playoff.
Two weeks ago, the team defeated Missouri in a dismal 9-6 effort, but they did so without starting linebacker Jordan Jenkins. He wasn’t able to practice during their bye week, but College Football Talk reports that he returned to practice on Monday.
Jenkins missed the Missouri game with a groin strain, his first absence in his four-year career. He was feeling well enough to return for a huge game against the Florida Gators coming up this Saturday.
“Jordan definitely gets us riled up for a game,” outside linebacker Davin Bellamy told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. “He’s a great player also, and seeing him make a play kinda makes everyone else make a play. So we’re kinda glad to have him back.”
Jenkins has recorded 29 tackles, with a team-high 7.5 for loss, and three sacks this year. Having him back on the field will be a huge boost for the Bulldogs this weekend.
