ATHENS, Ga. College Jerseys . -- Georgia running back Nick Chubb has been cleared to play in the 18th-ranked Bulldogs season opener against No. 22 North Carolina inside the Georgia Dome on Saturday.Hes been cleared, coach Kirby Smart said during his weekly news conference Monday. Its a situation where hes scrimmaged and done live things. Had a lot of practices where hes carried it more than five or seven times. We feel good about Nick, he feels great, and hes ready to go. He wont technically be on a pitch count by any means.Chubb has been ahead of his rehab schedule for months since he damaged several knee ligaments when he went down awkwardly on his first carry against Tennessee in October. The junior, who has rushed for 2,294 yards and 21 touchdowns in less than two full seasons of work, will return from his horrific knee injury less than a year later.He averaged an SEC-high 8.1 yards per carry last season and had a string of 13 straight 100-yard rushing games before his injury.Sophomore defensive lineman DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle said he has been impressed with Chubbs quick recovery and thinks hes actually been more physical in preseason practices.Me looking at him, hes ready, Hawkins-Muckle said. ... Hes even more physical than he was before. Nick Chubbs always been a hard runner. ... Hes an even harder runner [now].While Chubbs status for Saturdays game is confirmed, backup Sony Michels availability is still up in the air. The sophomore is recovering from a fractured left forearm he suffered over the Fourth of July weekend. Smart said that doctors have not cleared Michel to tackle live, leaving his availability for Saturday unknown.The situation is day-to-day, and were getting updates every day, Smart said. Hes doing more. Hes practiced.Georgias depth chart lists senior Brendan Douglas, who has 715 career rushing yards, or Chubb as the starters for Saturdays game.Sophomore wide receiver Terry Godwin Jr.?said Chubbs return makes the Bulldogs offense more formidable for opposing defenses, but it will also help open up a passing game that features a host of unproven players.The defense that were going play against, theyre always going to fear the run, knowing that we have someone back there thats going to dominate the run, Godwin said.As for who will be the first person throwing the ball for the Bulldogs this weekend, thats still unknown. Smart said senior Greyson Lambert and true freshman Jacob Eason are taking the most reps in practice, and the starting job will come down to those two. Junior Brice Ramsey has performed well in practice, Smart said, but the other two have distanced themselves from him of late. Ramsey is also listed as a punter on Georgias depth chart.Smart anticipates the quarterback situation sorting itself out before Saturday, but he hasnt ruled out possibly playing both Lambert and Eason against the Tar Heels.Well see how it goes, Smart said. First thing we have to do is figure out whos taking the first snap before we worry about the next guy coming in. I think itll reveal itself in the next couple of days, and well continue to get those guys reps and get both of those guys ready to play.Eason, who was the No. 1-rated quarterback in the 2016 recruiting class by ESPNs RecruitingNation, has seen his number of first-team reps increase over the past month and is pegged as the future at the position. Smart made it clear that he isnt opposed to starting the true freshman right out of the gate if he proves to be the Bulldogs best option.Were going to play the guy that gives us the best opportunity to win, Smart said. Weve stayed firm on that the whole way through. I have no reservations about a guys age. If youre old enough to play, then youre old enough to start. If youre good enough to play, then youre good enough to start.Said Hawkins-Muckle of Eason: Hes maturing faster than hes had to, but I feel like when he gets in and gets his opportunity, hes going to get the job done.Smart also announced that suspended defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter is still undergoing treatment for substance abuse stemming from two alcohol-related arrests this year, including an arrest on a DUI charge in July. Smart said Ledbetter is practicing and working out with the team.Freshman defensive lineman Julian Rochester is available to play Saturday, Smart said. Rochester was arrested along with now-dismissed defensive back Chad Clay in April on felony charges of possessing a weapon (BB gun) in a school zone and second-degree criminal damage to property. Cheap Authentic Jerseys . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year. MLB Jerseys . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. https://www.cheapjerseysjustwholesale.com/ . The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynchs famous "beast quake" touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game. Jarryd Hayne is back and hes got that 2009 feeling all over again.Hayne erased any doubts about how long it will take him to warm to the task as he kicked a brilliant field goal to seal a nail-biting 19-18 NRL win over Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Stadium on Saturday.The victory ensures the Titans will finish the weekend inside the top eight and with three rounds remaining they are shaping as a real dark horse of the premiership.Hayne proved he was ready to be the sides X-factor and he knows all about helping a side coming from the clouds.Seven years ago Hayne struck form, the likes of which the competition hasnt seen since.He guided the Eels from third last with eight rounds remaining all the way to the grand final.And Hayne said there was no ceiling on how high the Titans could go this year.Once our attack starts to flow, our defence is at a high standard, I think thats what will put us in good stead, Hayne said.Were in a bit better position than where we were at at Parra back in `09, weve still pretty much got to win the last two out of three ggames. NHL Jerseys. If we can get a rhythm in attack, anythings possible.Hayne returned to the NRL last week after he failed to make the Fiji Rugby Sevens squad for the Rio Olympics and might have been asking himself what could have been after watching the side claim gold.However rather than be bitter at his missed chance at an Olympic medal, he attributed his memorable field goal to the skills he learnt during his brief stint in rugby.After Titans halfback Ash Taylor and Tigers five-eighth Mitchell Moses both missed two attempted one-pointers, Hayne stepped up to the plate with eight seconds on the clock and iced the game.As soon as I got the ball I just sort of went back into my mode when I was at the Fiji Sevens of kicking field goals - that was just to take your time and get the drop right, he said.Thats probably the biggest thing. If you look in the replays you see I take an eternity to get the ball good, thats why. ' ' '
