Gibson, Thomas look doubtful for UAB game

ATHENS, Ga. -- Receiver Fred Gibson and fullback Jeremy Thomas probably won't play Saturday when No. 4 Georgia hosts UAB.

Gibson is still bothered by a bruised knee that kept him out of last week's victory over Vanderbilt. He didn't practice Tuesday.

"I keep asking him if it's getting better," coach Mark Richt said. "He says it's getting better."

Thomas probably will be held out after suffering his second concussion of the year. He was hurt playing on special teams in the Vandy game.

"I'm still having headaches. I'm still a little foggy," Thomas said. "I don't want to sit on the sidelines, but your head is pretty important. I don't want to mess with that."

Richt also announced the captains for Saturday: quarterback David Greene, safety Sean Jones, defensive end David Pollack and reserve cornerback Mike Gilliam.

Gilliam, a captain for the first time in his career, will lead the special teams after recording two solo tackles on punt coverage against the Commodores.

Greene will be the offensive captain, while Jones and Pollack will serve as defensive co-captains.
