ATHENS, Ga. – Two key Georgia players missed practice again Tuesday.

Bulldogs quarterback Jacob Eason and cornerback Malkom Parrish were not present during the media viewing period.

Coach Kirby Smart said last week that Eason, who sprained his left knee in the season opener against Appalachian State, would be “week to week” with the injury. He was seen using a crutch while present on Georgia’s trip to Notre Dame this past Saturday.

With Eason likely out again Saturday against Samford, true freshman Jake Fromm likely will get his second career start.

Parrish, a senior, is expected to return in the near future after breaking a bone in his foot in August. He missed Georgia’s first two games so far this season because of the injury. At the time of his announcement of the injury, Smart said Parrish would miss “two to four weeks.”

In Parrish’s absence, senior Aaron Davis has worked in his place; junior Deandre Baker has worked opposite him at the other cornerback spot.

Other practice notes:

– Junior outside linebacker D’Andre Walker went through drills with the other outside linebackers. He was held out for part of last Saturday’s game at Notre Dame for “rest,” per Smart.

– The Georgia first-team offensive line looks the same way it did through practice last week. From left to right, Isaiah Wynn, Kendall Baker, Lamont Gaillard, Solomon Kindley and Andrew Thomas make up the first unit. Though senior Dyshon Sims started at right guard against Notre Dame, Kindley rotated in for playing time at the position.
