Georgia freshman WR Kearis Jackson took reps at running back in practice.

Something to keep an eye on going forward, as Jackson (6'0/191) got a rep at tailback and rushed for six yards on his one carry in the second half of last Saturday's blowout of Middle Tennessee State. It sounds weird to say it, but Georgia probably has more depth at receiver than running back at the moment. If Jackson, a top-200 prospect in this past class, wants to see the field this year, diversifying his usability portfolio beyond receiver is a great idea.

Georgia senior WR Terry Godwin (calf) practiced on Monday.

Godwin has barely played for the Bulldogs, as he's dealt with the calf injury the last two weeks. Being able to practice this early in the week is a great sign for the senior wideout, and means he has a great chance to play against Missouri this Saturday.
Sep 17 - 5:20 PM

Georgia sophomore RB D'Andre Swift (groin) was able to practice on Monday.

Swift was limited to just four carries for 12 yards in the win over MTSU on Saturday, and it reportedly was due to Swift nursing a groin injury. The fact that he's already practicing is a good sign that he'll be ready to go against the Tigers, but the depth in the Georgia backfield could see him in a timeshare. It's a situation to monitor going forward, and we'll have any updates that come out on his status.
Sep 17 - 5:16 PM

Georgia sophomore T Andrew Thomas (ankle) was not present during the media portion of Monday's practice.

Thomas (6'5/320) was held out of Saturday's game against Middle Tennessee State, and is not off to a good start in his chances of playing against Missouri on Saturday. If Thomas can't go, Cade Mays will likely get the start at tackle against the Tigers. We should have more on this as the week progresses.

Georgia senior CB Deandre Baker "allowed" negative yards when targeted against Middle Tennessee State.

Baker (5'11/185) also had an interception. The elite corner has allowed a 33.7 passer rating when targeted this season and is well on his way to being a Day 1 or Day 2 NFL Draft pick. Before the season, Pro Football Focus listed Baker as the top cornerback of the 2019 class after not allowing a touchdown in 372 snaps as a junior.
Sep 16 - 4:25 PM

Georgia redshirt sophomore C Ben Cleveland didn't allow a single QB pressure on his 26 pass-blocking snaps against Middle Tennessee State.

Cleveland (6'6/335) is a big, bad dude for the Bulldogs. Not only did he not give up a pressure on Saturday, but he hasn't given up a single QB pressure on all 52 pass-blocking snaps on the season. A former four-star recruit who has matured after using his redshirt, Cleveland is a lineman to watch for down the road.
Sep 16 - 3:18 PM

According to Pro Football Focus, Georgia sophomore QB Jake Fromm wasn't pressure on any of his passing attempts against Middle Tennessee.

Fromm only had 12 attempts and was playing a lesser CUSA squad, but it was still an impressive outing for the Bulldogs offensive line. He also completed all three of his passes thrown for 10-yards or more including a 65-yard touchdown. Georgia hasn't been tested so far this season with easy wins over Austin Peay, South Carolina and Middle Tennessee. They will take on Drew Lock and the Missouri Tigers next week on the road, a game that should provide their hardest test to date.
Sep 16 - 9:15 AM

Georgia junior RB Elijah Holyfield rushed for 100 yards on eight carries in Saturday's 49-7 win over Middle Tennessee.

Holyfield (5'11/215) led the Bulldogs on both the carry and yardage fronts in Saturday's victory, while starting back D'Andre Swift had just four carries for 15 yards, here. Games like this are the perfect sandbox for HC Kirby Smart to play around with options and we wouldn't read too much into Swift's limited load. Holyfield has now rushed for an even 200 yards and two touchdowns through three games played. Missouri shows next on the Bulldogs' schedule.
Sep 15 - 4:11 PM

Georgia sophomore QB Jake From completed 10-of-12 passes for 128 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 49-7 win over Middle Tennessee.

Fromm has barely had to break a sweat through three games this season, as the Bulldogs have opened with breezy wins over Austin Peay, South Carolina and now Middle Tennessee. The sophomore signal-caller has thrown just nine incompletions in 46 pass attempts this year. All three of his touchdown passes came in the first half of Saturday's contest. A road date with Missouri shows next on the schedule for Fromm and friends.
Sep 15 - 3:35 PM

Georgia freshman WR Kearis Jackson (hamstring) returned to action against South Carolina in Week 2 after sitting out the opener.

Jackson (6'0/191) was bothered by a hamstring injury during preseason camp, and the Bulldogs kept the four-star freshman on the sidelines against Austin Peay on Sept. 1 just to be safe. He didn't catch a pass in what was his collegiate debut against the Gamecocks over the weekend. Jackson ranked as Rivals' No. 172 overall prospect in the 2018 class when he signed on with the Bulldogs as part of HC Kirby Smart's monster recruiting haul over the winter.

Georgia announced Thursday morning that Saturday's game against Middle Tennessee State has been moved up from 7:15 p.m. ET Saturday to noon ET Saturday due to Hurricane Florence.

The university's press release stated that the decision came "[a]fter extensive evaluation involving the uncertainty of weather conditions on the East Coast, and consideration of all constituencies involved including fans, support staff, and law enforcement." The game will be now televised on ESPN News. UGA-MTSU is the 11th game this weekend that has been impacted by Hurricane Florence.
Sep 13 - 12:25 PM

Updating a previous item, Georgia HC Kirby Smart said that if sophomore T Andrew Thomas (ankle) does not practice by Thursday, "it's probably not looking good" for his availability on Saturday.

Thomas (6'5/320) should be considered questionable for this weekend's showdown with Middle Tennessee after being lifted from Saturday's win over South Carolina due to an ankle injury. He has yet to practice this week. True frosh T Cade Mays will draw the start at left tackle versus the Blue Raiders if the Dawgs don't feel comfortable with Thomas' progress.

Georgia sophomore T Andrew Thomas (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against Middle Tennessee.

Thomas (6'5/320) required assistance to leave the field in the third quarter of Saturday's blowout of South Carolina. He has not practiced early in the week due to that injury concern. We should be able to pass along a more substantive update as to his availability for this weekend in the coming days, but it's not sounding great at this juncture. Should he be unable to man his customary left tackle spot along the line versus the Blue Raiders, true freshman Cade Mays -- who took over for him on Saturday following the injury -- would likely draw the start.
Sep 11 - 6:23 PM

Georgia sophomore S Richard LeCounte III made seven tackles and was given a 82.9 grade in coverage by Pro Football Focus.

LeCounte III (5'11/176) was on the field for 70 snaps and he made them count. The sophomore safety didn't miss a single tackle and one of his seven tackles was a run stop. With Georgia also lining up with stud J.R. Reed, the Bulldogs have one of the best safety pairings in college football. They will suffocate Middle Tennessee next Saturday.
Sep 9 - 3:09 PM

The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard said Georgia junior WR Mecole Hardman is "the kind of player the NFL has shown the desire to find."

Hardman is coming off a 6/103/1 game against South Carolina. Ledyard said he "wheels most receivers can only dream of" and "he acceleration after the catch just destroys pursuit angles." Most of his catches were bubble screens including a 37-yard catch and run. A popular preseason breakout candidate, Hardman is up to 8-166-2 through two games and figures to continue his success against Middle Tennessee State next weekend.
