Georgia's Jarvis Jones' status unclear for Kentucky

Georgia star outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, who has yet to practice after spraining his right ankle against South Carolina, isn’t a sure thing to play against Kentucky.


Coach Mark Richt talked more cautiously Tuesday about his availability for Saturday’s game after leaving no doubt two days earlier that Jones would play.

“You know what? We’ll see,” Richt said. “We’ll see. We’re not counting him out yet.”

Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said after practice that Jones is questionable for Saturday.

 LOUISIANA STATE: Sports Illustrated is reporting that former Louisiana State University cornerback Tyrann Mathieu might have violated NCAA rules by promoting a night club while he was still a member of the team.

The magazine reports Mathieu, whose nickname is Honey Badger, appeared in a video made by a group of his friends that goes by the name Era Nation in which he promotes a party at a Baton Rouge club called The Palace on March 10 of this year.

NCAA rules prohibit student-athletes from allowing their names or pictures to be used in advertising the sale of a product or service.

LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette said the school is aware of the promotional material with defensive tackle Anthony Johnson’s photograph, but does not believe he committed a violation.

 MIAMI: Is willing to wait and see if Stephen Morris’ sprained left ankle improves before the Hurricanes choose a quarterback to start on Saturday night against No. 12 Florida State.

Ryan Williams practiced Tuesday as Miami’s presumptive starter, with Preston Dewey as his backup, while Morris spent the day in treatment and unable to do anything on the field.

 TEXAS TECH: A Lubbock County prosecutor says part of the reason a felony burglary case against Texas Tech linebacker Daniel Cobb was dropped is because he agreed to a protective order.

Prosecutor Sunshine Stanek said the alleged victim requested the order and Cobb agreed to it. She declined to detail other reasons the case was dropped.

 MINNESOTA: Coach Jerry Kill is back at work this week after his latest seizure. Kill said Tuesday he’s “going full speed” after the episode after Saturday’s loss to Northwestern.

 RIGHT CALL: The national coordinator of NCAA football officials says replay officials at the Stanford-Notre Dame game were correct to let the call on the field for the last play of the game stand.

Field officials ruled Stanford running back Stepfan Taylor’s progress had been stopped before he reached the ball across the goal line for what would have been a potential tying touchdown on fourth-and-goal in overtime.

There was a video review of the play and the call was confirmed.
