The Hurricanes will likely get some needed defensive help against Georgia Tech.
UM coach Mark Richt indicated DT Anthony Moten (shoulder), DT Courtel Jenkins (knee surgery), LB Darrion Owens (back from reconstructive knee surgery but apparently had some type of undisclosed issue, per Richt to WQAM on Monday) and CB Adrian Colbert (knee surgery) would all play Saturday at noon.
"Well, there's a difference between pain and an injury,'' Richt said. "Everybody has something. Usually everybody by now has something that hurts a little bit and some guys have things that hurt a little bit more than others. But almost always with those kind of injuries, when the adrenaline pumps and the blood flows in a game you tend to not feel much of anything.
"If the adrenaline is pumping and their blood is pumping and they're hobbling around, then we'll get them out of the game."
Is Adrian Colbert back?
"Adrian has practiced every day for a while now. I don't know if he's 100 percent, but he's 100 percent going to play.''
