Georgia freshman RB D'Andre Swift (undisclosed) returned to practice on Thursday.

Swift (5'10/208) sat out three practices due to what HC Kirby Smart referred to as "some medical things." The four-star frosh has potential as a running back, receiver and kick-returner.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Seth Emerson reports that Georgia senior CB Malkom Parrish broke his foot in practice.

Parrish sat out Wednesday's practice due to an undisclosed injury. Per Emerson, he will have to undergo surgery to repair a broken foot. There is no concrete timetable for his return, but this will likely keep him out of action for at least the next two weeks. Aaron Davis -- who took reps at corner, rather than his usual safety spot on Wednesday -- Tyrique McGhee and highly regarded true freshman Deangelo Gibbs could all potentially see work in place of Parrish during the regular season if this injury sidelines him into September. He was a 12-game starter a year ago.

Georgia senior CB Malkom Parrish did not practice on Wednesday due to an undisclosed injury.

At this juncture, it is unclear the extent of Parrish's injury. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound senior was a 12-game starter for the Bulldogs last season and recorded 49 tackles while picking off two passes and defending eight.

Georgia sophomore WR Mecole Hardman has seen work in the Wildcat formation in practice.

While Hardman has seen practice reps in the Wildcat, HC Kirby Smart downplayed the significance of those reps. Said Smart, "Maybe if we lose a quarterback we have to do that. Maybe if Mecole does a good job, it’s something that somebody has to defend and the more things you give somebody to defend, the more challenging it is." Hardman (5'11/176) began his career at Georgia as a cornerback before shifting to wideout this offseason. He has been seeing first-team reps out of the slot during preseason camp.

Georgia freshman RB D'Andre Swift (undisclosed) is expected to return to practice this week.

"He’s getting some medical things checked on," said HC Kirby Smart, adding that "he should be fine." Among those "medical things," Swift suffered an ankle injury during practice on Saturday. The 5-foot-10, 208-pound true freshman was a four-star recruit for in the most recent cycle and provides a nice level of versatility. He could see time at running back, receiver and kick-returner this season, depending on what Georgia needs from him.

Georgia senior G Isaiah Wynn is dealing with an illness.

Given that HC Kirby Smart is not ruling him out to take part in Saturday's scrimmage, this illness does not look to keep Wynn down for long. The 6-foot-2, 280-pounder started 12 of 13 games at left guard last season.

Georgia freshman WR Jeremiah Holloman (hamstring) returned to practice on Wednesday.

A tweaked hamstring had shelved him for the the past week. The four-star early enrollee will resume fighting for a starting gig.

Georgia senior WR Shakenneth Williams (undisclosed) applied for a medical exemption.

On the whole, this piece of news is more about the team than the player. Williams, rarely used during his time on campus, missed the spring with an undisclosed injury. He hasn't kicked it yet. Applying for this exemption, which would render him medically disqualified, would allow Williams to stay on scholarship while not counting against Georgia's limit of 85. In essence, it opens up a scholarship for the Bulldogs while ending Williams' playing career.

Georgia signed JUCO sophomore WR/KR Ahkil Crumpton.

Crumpton has drawn comparisons to Isaiah McKenzie. "We combed the country looking for an elite returner," HC Kirby Smart said. "We didn’t feel like we had an elite returner. We really don’t have any experienced guys. We lost two guys. Isaiah had done it so long and we weren’t expecting to lose him. So when that situation arises you try to fix your roster as best you can." The 5-foot-8, 160-pound Crumpton was at Los Angeles Valley College last year. "He’s fast. He’s special," LAVC head coach Mike White said. "The fans will love him too. He’s a great kid. He’s got an awesome personality. He’s humble too."

Georgia received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 LB Caleb Tannor.

Tannor (6'3/225) had whittled the field down to Auburn and Georgia, with the Bulldogs ultimately coming away victorious. While he did not officially announce until Monday, the linebacker told Rivals that he had been "committed to Georgia silently" for several weeks. Rivals ranks him as the No. 30 prospect in the state of Georgia for the 2018 cycle.

Uncommitted four-star 2018 LB Caleb Tannor is deciding between Georgia and Auburn for his pledge.

"I had a good trip to Georgia last weekend and I will be at Auburn Saturday. That will be my last visit before I commit to one of them," said Tannor. The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder is considering making his pledge before the end of July. Rivals ranks him as the No. 30 prospect in the state of Georgia for the 2018 cycle.

Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb said that he has no concerns regarding the season-ending knee injury he suffered midway through the 2015 campaign.

"I’m healthy. I was healthy last year, I didn’t have any injuries, but I wasn’t 100 percent (either). But the rehab is over with now. I’m back doing my normal thing," Chubb said. He rushed for 1,130 yards and eight touchdowns last season. If the 5-foot-10, 228-pounder can put up 1,166 yards rushing during the coming campaign, he would tie former Arkansas RB Darren McFadden for the second-most career yards in SEC history. And if you really want to dream big, 1,835 yards would tie him with Herschel Walker for the most in conference history. Chubb is aiming to be a top-10 draft selection next spring.

Georgia five-star 2019 verbal WR commit Jadon Haselwood will visit Ohio State.

Rivals analyst Adam Friedman notes that Haselwood shares similarities as a player with blue-chip WR Trevon Grimes, whom the Buckeyes inked up with on National Signing Day this past February. Friedman also passes along that Oklahoma could receive a visit from the 6-foot-3, 175-pounder at an undetermined date down the road. Scout.com ranks Haselwood as the No. 13 overall prospect for the 2019 cycle.

Georgia received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 TE John FitzPatrick.

FitzPatrick (6'6/232) made his presence felt at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in Atlanta earlier this offseason, with the title outlet referring to him as a "go-to guy" and noting that "his hands were a strength much of the time." On Rivals' 2018 master list, FitzPatrick ranks as the No. 216 overall prospect for the cycle. Bulldogs HC Kirby Smart has shown a knack for scooping up intriguing tight ends during his year-plus at the helm in Athens, as sophomore TE Isaac Nauta is already looking like a potential rock star.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart compared Georgia junior LB Roquan Smith to C.J. Mosley.

Smart made the comparison after being asked if Smith is similar to former first-round pick Rolando McClain, whom Smart coached at Alabama. "If I had to draw a comparison to anybody, it would probably be closer to C.J. Mosley athletically, the ability to cover and move in space," Smart said. Smart, of course, also coached Mosley while with the Tide. Smith, the No. 10 player in the ESPN 300 coming out of high school, had 95 stops last season.
