Georgia running back Knowshon Moreno caused some brief panic attacks when he walked out for Friday’s practice wearing a green jersey.

However, coach Mark Richt said his potential Heisman Trophy candidate had no serious injuries. Moreno was held out of contact because his left shoulder was “nagging him.”

“I don’t know if [the green jersey] makes a whole hill of beans,” Richt said. “When we do our [non-tackling contact] drills, it’s hard for him not to get run into, or to bump into somebody going through the line.”

Richt did not know whether Moreno would continue wearing the green jersey for Saturday’s practices, which are both the first for two-a-days and full contact. Georgia running backs coach Tony Ball made the jersey decision after seeeing Moreno favor his left shoulder during pass protection.

“Knowshon is not the type of guy to go to the trainer and say ‘my shoulder hurts a little bit,’ ” Richt said. “[But] he’s fine. He could play today, absolutely.”
