ATHENS, Ga. – Georgia had one player return to practice Thursday, but another remains out for the Bulldogs.
Georgia sophomore defensive lineman Michail Carter practiced after missing the last four practices, but senior offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn did not.
Carter went through a get off and pursuit drill with the defensive line. He also took part in drills where they worked on striking the blocking sled.
Carter had been dealing with an illness, according to Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart. Wynn, who has been out since Monday, also has an illness, Smart says.
Freshman wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman practiced off to the side. He returned to practice following a hamstring injury, but it appears he may have re-aggravated it.
Other practice notes:
– With the continued absence of Wynn, the offensive line continues with senior Dyshon Sims at left tackle and Ben Cleveland at right tackle. Freshman Andrew Thomas continues to work at first-team left guard. Lamont Gaillard remains at center and Solomon Kindley is at right guard.
– The offensive line order did switch up a little bit on Thursday, with junior Kendall Baker working at second-team left tackle. Junior college transfer D’Marcus Hayes was with the third team at left tackle.
– The quarterbacks and wide receivers were crisp in their routes, throws and catches during defenseless drills. There was not one dropped pass. Specifically, though, you can also tell that the on-field training for sophomore Mecole Hardman is continuing. Before he ran a route out of the slot position, offensive coordinator Jim Chaney asked him to determine what type of coverage he needed to look out for and what to do before coming out of his break.
– The wide receivers ended the media viewing period by going up against defensive backs in one-on-one fade drills. Wide receivers coach James Coley was not pleased with the effort of some of the players and let them know it. Coley was noticeably vocal during the drill.
