Derek Mason “fully expects” Ralph Webb to play on Saturday

The junior RB left Saturday’s game with an apparent ankle injury.

So, we finally got an answer to the question of whether or not Vanderbilt will have something resembling an offense on Saturday at Georgia.

Derek Mason told reporters on this morning’s SEC teleconference that he fully expects Ralph Webb to play on Saturday, though there’s a little wiggle room in that statement: “we fully expect him to play” is not the same thing as “he will play.” Webb left the Kentucky game on Saturday with an apparent ankle injury, and Mason said that he’s doing well in rehab.

Left unanswered is whether Webb will be 100 percent for Saturday’s game. Webb is still listed as the first-string RB on this week’s depth chart, released yesterday, though it’s fair to say there has been some gamesmanship with the depth charts this season. Still notably absent is linebacker Nigel Bowden, who’s missed the last three games and the coaching staff has been mum about his status.
