Georgia HC Kirby Smart said that junior RB Nick Chubb (ankle) will be evaluated over the course of the practice week.

While Smart expressed optimism that Chubb might be able to play against Tennessee on Saturday, he wouldn't commit to it outright. Said Smart, "He’s gonna continue to rehab really hard. We’re obviously hopeful he’ll be able to do something. But we won’t know more until later in the week." The 5-foot-10, 228-pounder tweaked his ankle against Ole Miss on Saturday. After rushing for 222 yards against North Carolina in the season-opener, Chubb has managed an even 200 yards combined against Nicholls State, Missouri and Ole Miss.

Georgia freshman QB Jacob Eason completed 16 of 36 attempts for 137 yards and one interception in the school's 45-14 loss to Ole Miss.

This was easily Eason's worst performance of his young career. He received zero help from his receivers. In fact, Georgia dropped three consecutive passes early in this game, partially resulting in the 31-0 halftime deficit.
Sep 24 - 4:17 PM

Georgia junior RB Nick Chubb left Saturday's game with a sprained ankle after taking 12 carries for 57 yards in the school's 45-17 loss to Ole Miss.

Who knows how significant the sprain is, and Chubb exited when Ole Miss already had a large lead on the scoreboard. The Bulldogs used four running backs in this game, and will likely continue to use at least three in each game moving forward. Chubb's rebound from major leg injuries last year has been very impressive.

Georgia HC Kirby Smart confirmed that sophomore DE Jonathan Ledbetter remains suspended and will miss Saturday’s game against Ole Miss.

It's the fourth straight game Ledbetter has missed because of his alcohol-related suspension. Ledbetter, who seven games as a true freshman in 2015, has acknowledged that he has "a problem" with alcohol and will "continue to receive additional treatment for this disease."
Sep 21 - 4:41 PM

Georgia freshman QB Jacob Eason completed 29-of-55 passes for 308 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 28-27 win over Missouri.

Eason was the only quarterback to take a snap for the Bulldogs in this one. Given the way he played, we might not be seeing Greyson Lambert again this season barring an injury. The 6-foot-5, 207-pound Eason was far from perfect on the evening, but it was a stellar showing overall considering this was just the third game of his collegiate career. Missouri held a 27-21 advantage into the final minutes of the contest on Saturday, but Eason brought the Bulldogs back, ultimately hooking up with Isaiah McKenzie on a perfectly thrown 15-yard scoring pass with 1:36 remaining. The five-star frosh will head to Oxford next weekend as Georgia looks to topple Ole Miss.
Sep 18 - 12:33 AM

Georgia HC Kirby Smart indicated that junior RB Sony Michel will see an increased workload against Missouri on Saturday.

"Everything [Michel] can do he’s clear to do," Smart said, adding that "we want him to start playing a bigger role." Michel received a total of five touches (three carries, two receptions) in Saturday's win over Nicholls. That was his first game action of the season, as he suffered a fractured left forearm courtesy of an ATV accident over the Fourth of July weekend. The 5-foot-11, 208-pounder makes for one of the better backup options in the country.

Georgia junior TE Jeb Blazevich indicated that redshirt senior QB Greyson Lambert has a better grasp of the four-minute offense than freshman QB Jacob Eason.

"I think he has the experience and he can command in the huddle and he just knows exactly where everybody's supposed to be," Blazevich said. "He's been in that spot numerous times so he's used to it, he's comfortable with it." Eason was given the starting nod for Saturday's game against Nicholls State after he showed an impressive bit of moxie in the second half against North Carolina in the season-opening win. Georgia HC Kirby Smart said during his weekly news conference that the starter for this weekend's game against Missouri has not yet been determined.

Georgia HC Kirby Smart said that freshman QB Jacob Eason and redshirt senior QB Greyson Lambert will compete in practice to start against Missouri on Saturday.

Lambert and Eason have both made starts for the Bulldogs this season, with Eason completing 11-of-20 passes for 204 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's weirdly close win over Nicholls. Said Smart, "[The starter against Missouri will] be based on how practice goes. That'll work itself out over the course of the week." The 6-foot-5, 207-pound Eason possesses far more upside than Lambert, but Smart is clearly reticent to simply hand him the keys to the offense. At least at this juncture.

Georgia sophomore DE Jonathan Ledbetter will not play against Missouri on Saturday.

Ledbetter was suspended for the first two games of the season following an arrest on suspicion of DUI over the summer. In mid-July, Smart indicated that he might sit for more than just that pair of contests. That has come to pass. The 6-foot-4, 251-pounder has been receiving treatment for his issues. It is not yet known when he will return to action. Georgia's next three games will come against Missouri, Ole Miss and Tennessee.

Colorado State senior QB Faton Bauta completed 6-of-17 passes for 82 yards in Saturday's 23-14 win over UTSA.

Bauta took over at quarterback for an ineffective Nick Stevens in last week's loss to Colorado and handled starting duties from the word "go" on Saturday, but he has done little to impress with the increased responsibility. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Georgia transfer averaged just 4.8 YPA in the low-scoring win over UTSA. Look elsewhere -- like almost literally anywhere else -- for fantasy intrigue.
Sep 10 - 9:53 PM

Georgia junior RB Sony Michel carried the ball three times for three yards and caught two passes for five yards in the school's 26-24 win over Nicholls.

It was Michel's return to the field after undergoing surgery to repair a broken arm suffered in an off-field ATV accident. Freshman running back Brian Herrian ran ahead of Michel in this game.
Sep 10 - 3:37 PM

Georgia freshman QB Jacob Eason completed 11 of 20 attempts for 204 yards, one interception and one touchdown in the school's 26-24 win over Nicholls.

Eason's 66 yard touchdown throw traveled 12 yards in the air, then Isaiah McKenzie did the rest. Eason looks comfortable inside of structure, hanging in the pocket and keeping his eyes up. His interception, however, was in the redzone and is absolutely a mistake that cannot be made. Georgia faces Missouri next.
Sep 10 - 3:32 PM

Georgia junior RB Nick Chubb rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in the school's 26-24 win over Nicholls.

He added a 12 yard reception. Chubb's six yard touchdown was a toss right with clean blocking in front of him. The ultra talented running back had a magical opening week, rushing for 222 yards and two touchdowns against UNC. Not so much in this game, as Chubb also fumbled. Georgia needed 16 points in the third quarter to pull this one out.
Sep 10 - 3:23 PM

The Telegraph's Jason Butt reports that Georgia junior RB Sony Michel (arm) has been medically cleared for live-contact.

The offshoot of this clearance is that Michel could play against Nicholls State on Saturday. He has been on the slow mend from a fractured left forearm suffered in an ATV debacle over the Fourth of July weekend. With the 5-foot-11, 208-pound junior returned to the fold -- and freshman RB Elijah Holyfield recovered from an ankle injury -- Georgia's running back stable is once again loaded behind Nick Chubb. Last season, Michel rushed for 1,136 yards (5.2 YPC) and eight touchdowns while catching 26 passes for 270 yards. Much of that production came after Chubb tore up his knee in October, of course, but Michel still figures to be an integral part of the offense even with Chubb back to destroying the universe.

Sep 9 - 3:34 PM

Georgia HC Kirby Smart indicated that he expects freshman RB Elijah Holyfield (ankle) to play against Nicholls State on Saturday.

"We hope to get him some work this week," Smart said during his weekly radio show. Holyfield tweaked his ankle during Georgia's second scrimmage of August and was held out of Saturday's season-opening win over North Carolina -- though his sitting was due to the fact that the injury prevented him from receiving adequate practice reps, rather than the injury itself. Nick Chubb is locked in as a starter (and then some), but the 5-foot-11, 204-pound Holyfield should be able to knock out some carries against a cupcake opponent this weekend. He wouldn't hold fantasy intrigue unless Chubb went down injured.
