ATHENS — Georgia football coach Kirby Smart indicated tailback D’Andre Swift is 100 percent, and receiver Terry Godwin is expected to practice on Monday.

Left tackle Andrew Thomas, however, is still on the mend.

“Andrew, we’re hoping will be able to get more active a bit more,” Smart said at his Monday press conference. “We don’t know if he’ll be able to practice today.

“Terry is OK, Terry should practice today, he does have a (shin) contusion, but I think he’ll be able to go today.”

Thomas missed the Bulldogs’ 49-7 win over Middle Tennessee on Saturday on account of the ankle injury he suffered on the first play of the second half at South Carolina.

Godwin didn’t play in the second half, leaving the field at halftime with his lower left leg heavily bandaged with ice taped to it.

Smart said Godwin may have hurt his shin in the game, but Godwin has also dealt with a calf strain and knee injury that kept him out most of fall drills

Swift didn’t play after the second series of the game, but Smart indicated at the time that at least part of the reason was Georgia wanted to rotate running backs.

Smart reiterated there was no injury situation where Swift was concerned, putting an and to any speculation.

“We expect to be 100 percent at the running back position,” Smart said Monday, “like we were Saturday.”
