ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia senior offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn was back on the practice field — and back at first-team left tackle — on Monday after missing all of last week with an illness.

With Wynn is at practice, true freshman Andrew Thomas received work as the first-team right tackle. He worked as the first-team left guard last week while Wynn was out. Senior Dyshon Sims was the first-team left tackle last week but was with the second-team line Monday.

In addition to Thomas getting work with the starters, true freshman Isaiah Wilson — a five-star recruit — appeared to get work as the second-team left guard. He had been working as the third-team right tackle.

Other practice notes:

* Junior defensive end Jonathan Ledbetter was not on the field during the open media viewing period. Coach Kirby Smart said Saturday that Ledbetter was dealing with an illness and Smart said he expected him back on the field in the next few days.

* Sophomore wide receiver Tyler Simmons was in a non-contact jersey; he has been dealing with a left wrist injury. The team practiced in shoulder pads and shorts on Monday.

* True freshman wide receiver Jeremiah “J.J.” Holloman was on the field going through drills. He has been sidelined twice during camp with hamstring issues.

* Georgia practiced at the indoor athletic facility. There was inclement weather in the area; then again, the decision to practice inside could have made earlier. Smart talked Saturday about how the players were being affected by the high temperatures and practicing inside obviously gets the players out of the heat.
