Georgia freshman WR Kearis Jackson (hamstring) returned to practice on Thursday.

Jackson (6'0/191) was a four-star recruit -- ESPN 300's No. 26 overall prospect -- in HC Kirby Smart's monster 2018 class. We wouldn't expect him to see significant playing time this season given the depth the Bulldogs possess at receiver.

Georgia sophomore RB D'Andre Swift led the SEC in highest percentage of runs exceeding 10 yards at 22.5% in 2017.

Fellow Georgia Bulldogs Sony Michel (21.3%) and Nick Chubb (18.9%) checked in at second and third. With both Michel and Chubb in the NFL, Swift is inheriting an offense missing 379 carries. Because of the expected volume and Swift's talent, Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks Swift as the No. 15 player -- and the No. 8 running back -- in college fantasy football this season. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein also lists Swift as the top running back to watch in college football in 2018.

While Georgia senior WR Terry Godwin (knee) was able to practice on Thursday, The Athletic's Seth Emerson passes along that he "didn't look entirely comfortable."

Per Emerson, Godwin's working with a wrap on the back of his left leg as he attempts to overcome the pesky knee injury which has been nagging throughout camp. While he still has time to heal up before the season starts, UGA would almost certainly feel confident in resting Godwin for Week 1 if need be -- the Bulldogs will be playing Austin Peay to open the campaign on Sept. 1.

Georgia freshman TE Luke Ford was involved in a minor motorcycle accident on Thursday morning.

The incident occurred at about 10:30 AM, when Ford lost control of the motorcycle. No other parties were involved in the accident and the freshman tight end was the one who ultimately ended up reporting it to authorities. He did suffer a right foot injury and was subsequently taken into the hospital for treatment. There does not appear to be any serious health issue in play, here, and unless information surfaces to the contrary, the 6-foot-7, 247-pound true freshman should be available for Georgia's opener against Austin Peay on Sept. 1. Ford was the top tight end prospect in the country for the past cycle.

Georgia senior TE Jackson Harris has been ruled out indefinitely due to a foot injury.

Harris (6'6/250) injured his foot during Tuesday's practice. Even if his sidelining ends up costing him significant time, it's not a particularly damaging loss for the Bulldogs. The senior tight end has made just seven catches for his career in Athens to date.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart said there is "no certainty" that junior CB Tyrique McGhee (foot) will miss the home opener on Sep. 1 against Austin Peay with a small fractured foot.

McGhee (5'10/187) suffered a "small fracture in his foot", but Smart claims McGhee will try to play through it as he did last year. McGhee played in all fifteen games with Georgia last year appearing all over the secondary and special teams. He recorded 25 tackles as a sophomore.

Georgia senior WR Terry Godwin (knee) was seen running off to the side on Tuesday.

Godwin (5'11/185) continues to fight his way through a pesky knee injury which has lingered throughout preseason camp. His availability for UGA's opener against Austin Peay on Sept. 1 does not yet appear to be in jeopardy -- though we're working with incomplete information -- but even if this injury does keep Godwin sidelined into the campaign, he can afford to rest against Austin Peay. The competition will ramp up with South Carolina in Week 2.
Aug 15 - 12:20 PM

The Athletic's Seth Emerson reports that the NCAA has approved Georgia redshirt sophomore WR Demetris Robertson's hardship waiver for immediate eligibility this season.

Seismic news coming out of Athens, here. Robertson (6'1/180) ranked as Rivals' No. 8 overall prospect in the 2016 class. He initially signed on at Cal, where he immediately jumped out to a 50-767-7 receiving line his freshman year. That promising beginning to his collegiate career would take a tough turn after he was lost for the 2017 season due to a lower-body injury just two games into the campaign. Robertson announced his transfer intention in June and settled on a move to the Bulldogs in mid-July. With him now eligible for the upcoming campaign, HC Kirby Smart and staff will be able to unleash a loaded, deep receiving corp headlined by Robertson, Terry Godwin and Mecole Hardman. They boast one of the best overall groups in the SEC.

Georgia senior WR Terry Godwin (knee) was held out of practice on Thursday.

Godwin (5'11/185) did practice on Tuesday -- and apparently looked smooth in doing so -- but it would appear that he's still not completely past the nagging knee injury which has been plaguing him in camp. While this is less than ideal, there's been no indication to this juncture that this is anything more than a minor injury.
Aug 9 - 4:06 PM

Georgia senior WR Terry Godwin (knee) practiced without limitation on Tuesday.

Godwin (5'11/185) has been dealing with a left knee injury early in camp, but there would appear to be no cause for frayed nerves in Athens. Bulldogs HC Kirby Smart described the injury as "small" and "minor" on Friday. The senior wideout looked crisp in his movements during Tuesday's session. Godwin posted a 36-639-6 receiving line last season and has caught at least 35 passes in each of his three years on campus to date.
Aug 7 - 5:01 PM

Georgia received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 JUCO DL Jermaine Johnson.

Johnson is considered one of the best defensive lineman in the class in the JUCO ranks, coming from Independence CC in Kansas. If that school sounds familiar, it's the subject of the latest season of Last Chance U; a documentary series on Netflix that explores two-year football. He ranks second among defensive lineman of that ilk in 247 Sports composite ranks, and fourth overall. Johnson was also considering schools like Oregon, Colorado, Louisville and Oklahoma. The Bulldogs remain in the top spot in 247 Sports rankings.
Aug 3 - 5:38 PM

Georgia senior WR Terry Godwin is currently limited with a minor knee injury.

The injury is not considered serious, but Godwin was also nicked up earlier this offseason, so perhaps something to keep an eye on moving forward. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound receiver was kept under wraps in Georgia’s spring game due to knee and ankle issues. Per Pro Football Focus, Godwin had the highest passer rating when targeted of any returning SEC wide receiver a year ago, when he recorded a 38-639-6 receiving line as a junior. Expect the Bulldogs to go easy on their lead wideout early in camp.
Aug 3 - 3:33 PM

According to The Athletic's Seth Emerson, Georgia freshman DB Divaad Wilson (knee) is "progressing well" in his rehab.

Wilson (5'11/172) sustained a torn ACL near the end of March. Just how close he is to on-field work remains to be seen, with his status for Georgia's regular-season opener against Austin Peay on Sept. 1 to be determined closer to kickoff. The defensive back was a four-star recruit in Georgia's monster 2018 signing class.
Aug 3 - 3:27 PM

Georgia sophomore QB Jake Fromm is wearing a precautionary splint on his left (non-throwing) hand.

Fromm (6'2/225) was involved in a pair of odd incidents this offseason, snagging himself in the leg with a fishhook back in May and then upping the ante by fracturing his left hand while sitting on the back of a boat on the Fourth of July. His paw happened to be struck by an errant wakeboarding tow rope. While the Bulldogs are playing it safe with Fromm via the splint, he's not expected to be limited in any fashion during preseason camp. Maybe keep him away from nature.
Aug 3 - 2:24 PM

Georgia freshman RB Zamir White (knee) is expected to be a full participant in preseason camp.

White (6'0/210) tore his ACL in November. The timing actually worked out well for the Bulldogs, as the five-star frosh then had nine months or thereabouts to heal up. He'll be wearing a knee brace in camp, but for all intents and purposes, it would appear that White is now past his injury concern. We envision the Bulldogs using White in a similar fashion to that of D'Andre Swift a year ago. Swift played a complementary role behind Nick Chubb and Sony Michel while still racking up impressive numbers in his own right. Coming out of high school this winter, White ranked as Rivals' No. 10 overall prospect in the 2018 class.
