UGA defensive back tests positive for swine flu
By Tim Tucker
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
STILLWATER, Okla. — Georgia backup defensive back Makiri Pugh did not make the trip to the Oklahoma State game after testing positive for the H1N1 virus, commonly known as swine flu, UGA coach Mark Richt said in his postgame press conference.
“I don’t even know if I’m allowed to say that,” Richt said. “I probably shouldn’t have said that.”
Richt said quarterback Joe Cox tested negative for swine flu.
Richt said it’s not known how long Pugh, a redshirt freshman from Charlotte, will be out of action. “Even with guys who have that H1N1, sometimes it’s a quick turnaround, sometimes it’s not,” he said. “We’ll just have to see.”
Asked if any players other than Pugh and Cox have had flu-like symptoms, Richt said: “I’m not saying anything else about health because I don’t want to get into trouble.”

Moreno expected to be ready for opener
By Bill WilliamsonESPN.com
The Denver Broncos, who lost seven tailbacks to injury in 2008, dodged a potential major problem when an MRI showed that rookie running back Knowshon Moreno has a mild MCL sprain in his knee, a source close to the situation said Saturday. He suffered the injury Friday night in Denver's preseason opener at San Francisco.
Moreno will be monitored carefully and he will likely miss some time as a precaution. But at this point, he should be ready for the Broncos' Sept. 13 season opener at Cincinnati.
Moreno was the No. 12 overall draft pick in April out of Georgia. He is expected to have a major role in Denver's offense. He looked excellent in his limited playing time against the 49ers. He had 18 yards on three carries before leaving for the locker room because of the injury.

Team That'll Surprise
Georgia - It's all relative. Georgia was No. 1 to start out 2008 and came up with a disappointing 9-3 regular season. Now the spotlight is off, with all the attention being paid to Florida and Ole Miss, but don't go to sleep on the loaded Dawgs and don't just assume they'll take any sort of a step back just because it lost Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno to the NFL a year early. Of course, Georgia would likely be everyone's preseason No. 2 team had Stafford and Moreno returned, but it's not far off as is. The offensive line might be the best in America, the defense will be swarming, and the bevy of strong backs are good enough to carry the offense when the passing game isn't working. There will be tests, the season opener at Oklahoma State should be the SEC's best non-conference challenge, but no matter how that turns out, don't be shocked if it's Georgia, and not Florida, winning the SEC title.
