ATHENS — Georgia got a bit healthier for Wednesday’s practice, at least when it came to two notable players.
Outside linebacker Leonard Floyd was back and practicing without limitations, after being absent from Tuesday’s morning session. (And possibly the afternoon session, which was closed to media viewing.)
Receiver Terry Godwin was also back, wearing a green non-contact jersey. Godwin missed a few days with a shoulder injury, per a source.
There were some other notable names still missing:
– Inside linebacker Tim Kimbrough, who had been getting first-team snaps last week, continues to be out.
– Receiver Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring) was also out, as expected. Coach Mark Richt has said he expects McKenzie to return in plenty of time for the season, which begins three weeks from Saturday.
– Freshman defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter was also not seen at practice.
– And senior defensive back Kennar Daniels-Johnson was also absent.
Meanwhile, outside linebacker Davin Bellamy is practicing with his right hand wrapped in a club. Senior defensive lineman James DeLoach has also been practicing with his hand in a club.
Finally, the daily quarterback analysis, albeit based on the short media viewing period: Faton Bauta appeared to be taking his turn as the No. 1 quarterback. The only play that stood out to this reporter was when Bauta and Brice Ramsey threw on the same deep-ball drill: Both completed their passes, but Malcolm Mitchell had to slow down to catch Bauta’s heave, while Reggie Davis was able to catch Ramsey’s pass in stride.
