Post So Joe Cox is injured after all

Friday September 11, 2009

Yesterday’s declaration that Joe Cox will start Saturday’s game was supposed to be the final word on rumors about Cox’s status, but Cox himself has now admitted to ESPN’s Joe Schad that Cox has an injured throwing shoulder.

The rumors about Logan Gray starting might’ve been shot down, but Cox’s health was always the key part of the story. And now, after countless dismissals and Mark Richt joking around about resting Cox during the week, we learn that there’s a legitimate injury story here.

Whether Cox is able to perform and is still the best option going forward is of course still in question and up to the coaching staff, but maybe now we can see that there was more than a shred of truth to the talk of getting Logan Gray ready to lead the #1 offense.
