According to Pro Football Focus, Georgia junior LB Roquan Smith has the most tackles of any player who hasn't missed a tackle among draft-eligible linebackers.

Smith (6'1/225) has made 29 tackles this year, and has yet to miss on a single tacke attempt, according to PFF. He also has 21 "stops" this year; with a stop constituting a win for the defense. Smith is one of the main reasons the Georgia defense has been so impressive in 2017, and would be one of the top inside-linebackers in the class if he were to declare.

Georgia junior DT Trenton Thompson (knee) practiced on Tuesday.

Thompson (6'4/307) has missed each of Georgia's last two games due to a knee injury suffered against Vanderbilt at the end of September. The Bulldogs are off on bye this week, giving the junior plenty of time to mend before he and his crew take on Florida on October 28. His playing-status for that contest will be determined closer to that kickoff.

Georgia junior WR Terry Godwin (ribs) practiced on Tuesday.

Godwin sustained an injury to his ribs in the second quarter of Saturday's win over Missouri. Subsequent X-rays returned negative and that he is already back to practicing is a strong sign that this injury is not one that is expected to linger. Georgia is off on bye this weekend.

X-rays on Georgia junior WR Terry Godwin's injured ribs came back negative.

Godwin exited stage left in the second quarter. After the game, Bulldogs HC Kirby Smart said that the junior wideout "should be fine." He'll have an extra week to rest up before Georgia puts their 7-0 record on the line against Florida on October 28, as the team will be on bye this coming weekend.

Georgia senior RB Sony Michel rushed for 86 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries in Saturday's 53-28 win over Missouri.

The Bulldogs pounded the ball down Missouri's throat on Saturday, rushing for a total of 370 yards. D'Andre Swift led the team with 94 yards on the ground, followed by Michel's 86 and Nick Chubb's 70. For his part, the 5-foot-11, 208-pound Michel is now up to 492 yards rushing and six touchdowns in six games played.

Georgia freshman QB Jake Fromm completed 18-of-26 passes for 326 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 53-28 win over Georgia.

The Bulldogs have largely kept Fromm from having to handle an extensive amount of work in the passing game -- they haven't needed it much -- but he was unleashed on Saturday (albeit against Missouri's awful defensive unit). With his 326 yards passing, Fromm secured the first 300-yard passing performance of his young career. He's now thrown for 1,162 yards with a 12/3 TD/INT ratio in seven games. We don't expect Georgia's offense to suddenly morph into a heavy passing attack, but Fromm has more than impressed when asked to since taking over for an injured Jacob Eason at the beginning of the season.

Georgia junior WR Terry Godwin left Saturday's game against Missouri due to a possible rib injury.

Godwin was injured in the second quarter and was subsequently taken to the locker room for examination. At this juncture, the severity of the injury is unknown. Riley Ridley and Michael Chigbu would see additional work for the remainder of the game if Godwin is unable to return.

Georgia redshirt freshman G Solomon Kindley (ankle) should be available for Saturday's game against Missouri.

Kindley (6'4/330) has been dealing with ankle issues on-and-off throughout the season, most recently being forced out of last weekend's win over Vanderbilt. He'll continue to play through these minor aches and pains unless they become more serious. The redshirt freshman has started three games at right guard for the undefeated Bulldogs this season.

NFL media draft analyst Lance Zierlein believes Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb has seen his draft stock rise from his strong start to his 2017 season.

Chubb (5'10/235) looked hesitant at times in 2016 as he returned from his knee injury, but Zierlein says that three different NFL evaluators have told him he looks like a different player so far in 2017. He notes that Chubb looks "much more explosive as an interior and outside rusher. He also looks much lighter on his feet while eluding tackle attempts." The previous knee injury will cause concern for some, but Chubb has run like a top 100 selection so far.

Georgia redshirt senior LB Reggie Carter (undisclosed) did not practice on Tuesday.

Carter was injured in Georgia's Week 5 win over Tennessee and did not play in this past Saturday's showdown with Vanderbilt. There remains no concrete timetable for his return to action, but the team was hopeful that he could play against the Commodores, so the redshirt senior is not necessarily too far off. Georgia takes on Missouri on Saturday.

Georgia junior DT Trenton Thompson (knee) did not practice on Tuesday.

Thompson has been nursing a knee injury sustained against Tennessee two games ago. He did not play in Saturday's win over Vanderbilt. While Bulldogs HC Kirby Smart said that the 6-foot-4, 307-pounder was "able to do a little bit [on Tuesday]," the junior defensive lineman remains a serious question mark for this weekend's upcoming tilt against Missouri.
Oct 10 - 8:43 PM

Georgia HC Kirby Smart said that sophomore QB Jacob Eason had a "really good practice" on Tuesday.

"He's got to stay in tune to it, he's got to battle and fight, and I think he's done that," Smart said. Eason has not started a game since he went down with a knee injury in the season-opener. While he has been practicing for the past few weeks, freshman Jake Fromm looks to be more or less entrenched as starter at this juncture. With Georgia sitting at 6-0, we don't expect them to switch horses in midstream unless Fromm begins to truly falter. Fromm was still taking snaps ahead of Eason in practice on Tuesday.
Oct 10 - 7:27 PM

Georgia junior LB Roquan Smith led the team with seven tackles in Saturday's win over Vanderbilt.

Smith (6'0/203) also had a pass breakup in the victory. He has paced the Bulldogs in tackles each of the last two weekends. For the campaign as a whole, the junior linebacker has logged 45 total tackles. He has recorded at least six tackles in each of Georgia's five games this season.

In the latest release of the AP Top-25 poll, Georgia saw a bump from No. 5 to No. 4.

The Bulldogs slide into the top-four courtesy of their win over Vanderbilt on Saturday, one which saw them improve to 6-0 on the season. The back half of the top-10 might be the most intriguing segment of the new AP release -- TCU, Wisconsin, Washington State, Ohio State and Auburn now occupy spot Nos. 6-10. Miami sits just outside that lot at No. 11. One somewhat low-key riser to watch would be Notre Dame. The Irish moved up from No. 21 to No. 16 via their win over North Carolina on Saturday. And their one-point loss to Georgia back in September is looking more and more respectable as the season draws on.
Oct 8 - 2:17 PM

Georgia freshman QB Jake Fromm completed 7-of-11 passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 45-14 win over Vanderbilt.

As has tended to be the case this season, Fromm was not tasked with a ton in the passing game. He excelled when called upon, though, particularly on a 47-yard rocket of a deep ball to Terry Goodwin for a third-quarter touchdown. Jacob Eason has returned to health from the knee injury he sustained in the season-opener, but this looks to be Fromm's show until further notice. The 5-0 Bulldogs will tango with Missouri in what should be a breeze of a contest next Saturday.
