After sitting out a week, Georgia star LB Jarvis Jones expects to play against Vanderbilt

Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones is back at practice and expects to play when the fifth-ranked Bulldogs host Vanderbilt on Saturday.

The junior sat out last week's 56-20 victory over Florida Atlantic, allowing him to rest a groin injury. But he made it clear Tuesday that he intends to play against the Commodores.

Jones says he "ready to get out there and just pick up where I left off from."

He strained his right groin before the Missouri game, but played through the pain in perhaps the best performance of his college career — two sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception that he nearly brought back for a touchdown.

Jones won numerous defensive player of the week awards, but Georgia decided to rest him against overmatched Florida Atlantic.
