LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Running back Rafael Little should be able
to start against Georgia after making significant progress from a
back injury, coach Rich Brooks said Thursday.
Little, who was injured Saturday against Vanderbilt, was able to
practice for the first time in a week. Brooks had listed him as
questionable on Wednesday.
Two other Wildcats running backs, Tony Dixon and Alfonso Smith,
remain questionable with other injuries, Brooks said.
Little leads the team in rushing with 752 yards and has three
touchdowns. He has rushed for more than 100 yards in all five games
in which he has been available for the entire game but has missed
three games and parts of two others because of injury.
The Wildcats (7-3, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) will try to beat
the Bulldogs for the second straight year Saturday in a game that
could have major bowl implications for both teams.
