Richt released a statement Monday saying staff members unanimously decided that Cox gives the team its best chance to win. Still, he said sophomore Logan Gray will get some playing time at quarterback this week.
There were questions about Cox position after he was booted from a 41-17 loss to top-ranked Florida on Saturday after throwing three interceptions. Gray also struggled, throwing an interception that was returned for a touchdown.
Richt said A.J. Green suffered a pulmonary contusion Saturday and will not play in this weeks game against Tennessee Tech. He said Clint Boling is probable with a knee contusion and Justin Houston is doubtful after suffering a hyper extended elbow.
