Georgia HC Kirby Smart said that sophomore RB D'Andre Swift is dealing with ankle sprain and/or contusion.

Smart told reporters that the team is hopeful that Swift will be available for practice action later this week. The Bulldogs are currently off on bye, affording the sophomore back plenty of time to get healthy before an Oct. 27 date with Florida.

The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard views Georgia junior WR Riley Ridley as a "slightly more raw Michael Thomas."

Ledyard writes that while Ridley is not quite as polished at this stage of his development as Thomas at a similar point, he sees them as being on a "similar plane as prospects." The analyst is intrigued by the forward steps Ridley has taken in development since signing on with the Bulldogs, highlighting that the 6-foot-1, 198-pound junior's route-running "has made major leaps this season." Concluded Ledyard, "Growth isn’t linear for everyone, but Ridley’s improvement over his time at Georgia is a good indicator that his best may also be yet to come in the NFL." He believes Ridley could draw consideration as the top receiving prospect in the pool come the spring.

Georgia senior LB D'Andre Walker (undisclosed) practiced on Tuesday.

Walker (6'3/251) was injured in Saturday's upset loss to LSU. Looks like it might be no great shakes, there, as The Athletic's Seth Emerson passes along that the senior linebacker "look[ed] fine" during Tuesday's practice session. If Walker has any issues later in the week, we'll pass along word. The Bulldogs are currently off on bye -- they'll play Florida in two weekends -- giving him plenty of time to rest up.

Georgia sophomore RB D'Andre Swift ran for 72 yards on 12 carries and caught two passes for 21 yards in a 36-16 loss to LSU on Saturday.

Swift (5'10/208) ended up out-touching Elijah Holyfield by six. The sophomore has still yet to rush for 75 yards in a game this year, quite the disappointment for a player we expected to break out in a big way this fall. Georgia is on bye next week. They host Florida in two weeks.
Oct 13 - 7:10 PM

Georgia sophomore QB Jake Fromm went 16-of-34 for 209 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in a 36-16 loss to LSU on Saturday.

Fromm couldn't buy a completion early as LSU jumped out to a 16-0 lead at halftime. He may have been marginally better in the second half, but that's about all the positivity we can muster. Georgia fans must be wondering why Justin Fields didn't attempt even one pass. We're definitely headed for an interesting week of quarterback controversy in Athens. Georgia has a week to lick its wounds before it hosts Florida.

Georgia sophomore DL Devonte Wyatt (leg) did not make the trip with the team for Saturday's game at LSU.

With Wyatt (6'3/301) ruled out the Bulldogs will be down three defensive linemen, with David Marshall and Daquan Hawkins-Muckle also remaining in Athens due to injury. The sophomore's appeared in five of Georgia's six games to date, accounting for six total tackles (four in the win over Middle Tennessee). Wyatt's absence means more reps for freshman nose tackle Jordan Davis.

Georgia junior DT David Marshall will not play in Saturday's game at LSU due to a foot injury.

Marshall (6'3/256) was considered to be doubtful for Saturday's showdown in Baton Rouge, so this development isn't a surprise. Georgia's defensive line depth takes a hit as a result of the junior's absence. The Bulldogs won't play again until Oct. 27 against Florida, which would give Marshall additional time to get back to full strength.

Georgia received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 S Lewis Cine.

Cine (6'1/180) was considered a Georgia lean, but was also considering schools like Penn State, Auburn, Arizona and Tennessee. It's another big get for the Bulldogs, as Cine is ranked as the third best safety in the country in 247 Sports' composite rankings. Reports indicate that he can make plays on the football in the passing game, but also can help as a defender in the box. The Bulldogs have the third ranked class in the country, ranking only behind fellow SEC schools Alabama and Texas A&M.

Georgia redshirt sophomore G Solomon Kindley has been diagnosed with a mild knee sprain.

Kindley (6'4/335) was carted off the field in the first quarter of Saturday's win over Vanderbilt, but Bulldogs HC Kirby Smart passed along on Monday that the redshirt sophomore had avoided any structural damage. Sighs of relief. Smart indicated that the team should have a better idea as to a return timetable later in the practice week. Consider him questionable for Saturday's game against LSU.

Georgia junior DT David Marshall (foot) is doubtful for Saturday's game against LSU.

Marshall (6'3/256) works as a depth cog for the Bulldogs. With a bye week coming up after this weekend's showdown with the Tigers, he'll have some additional time to rehab upcoming.
Oct 9 - 7:29 PM

Georgia junior WR Tyler Simmons (shoulder) returned to play on Saturday against Vanderbilt.

He recorded no stats. Simmons, who suffered the shoulder injury against Missouri, wore a brace that immobilized his shoulder against Vanderbilt. He was called for holding on the Bulldogs’ first punt return.

Georgia sophomore RB D'Andre Swift ran for 50 yards on seven carries and caught four passes for 49 yards with a score in a 41-13 blowout win over Vanderbilt on Saturday.

Once again, the Bulldogs split out the carries, with nine different players getting a carry and six of those getting at least three attempts. Swift (5'10) did solid work with his chances, and scored on a 35-yard swing pass from Jake Fromm where he simply ran past the Vanderbilt defense. There are so many mouths to feed in this offense -- particularly at running back -- but Swift's talent has still been able to be on display. He and the Bulldogs take on LSU next Saturday.
Oct 6 - 11:27 PM

Georgia sophomore QB Jake Fromm threw for three touchdowns and 276 yards while completing 17-of-23 passes in a 41-13 crushing of Vanderbilt on Saturday.

Fromm had his first ever game without a touchdown in the win over Tennessee on Saturday, so he made up for it with a three-score effort against the hapless Vanderbilt defense. He showed his usual accuracy and touch on the football, and he showed off his underrated arm strength on a 75 yard pass to Terry Godwin. The sophomore signal-caller improves his TD/INT ratio to 12/2, and his completion percentage remains over 70 percent. The first real test of the year for Fromm and Georgia comes next Saturday against LSU.
Oct 6 - 11:20 PM

Georgia redshirt sophomore G Solomon Kindley (leg) was taken off of the field on a cart during the first half of Saturday's game against Vanderbilt with an apparent right leg injury.

The fact that a cart was needed to take Kindley off of the field doesn't bode well for his prospects regarding a return Saturday night. The redshirt sophomore guard's injury is another hit to Georgia's depth on the offensive line, as the team was already without Ben Cleveland. Kendall Baker replaced Kindley at left guard.
Oct 6 - 8:22 PM

Georgia first baseman Adam Sasser has been dismissed after allegedly making racist remarks directed at freshman QB Justin Fields during Saturday's win over Tennessee.

According to a Facebook post by UGA student Klarissa Gulebian, Sasser was overheard making racist comments toward Fields in the fourth quarter on Saturday while she was taking a phone call. When she returned to her seat, Gulebian's friends told her that others in the vicinity had asked Sasser to stop, and that he at first agreed before starting back into it. She eventually reported him to security, with a guard watching over the section through to the end of the game. Sasser apologized -- without going into specifics as to what, exactly, he was apologizing for -- on social media and said that he had gotten in touch with Fields.
