Georgia defensive back Tyrique McGhee has a broken bone in his foot, Kirby Smart said Wednesday.

ATHENS — Georgia football coach Kirby Smart said junior defensive back Tyrique McGhee has a “small fracture in the fifth metatarsal” in one of his feet as a result of the injury he suffered in Saturday’s scrimmage.

Smart said he hasn’t ruled out McGhee for the Bulldogs’ opener against FCS Austin Peay at 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 1 at Sanford Stadium.

It would seem likely, however, that Georgia might want to be cautious about bringing McGhee back too quickly if this is a recurring injury.

Smart disclosed that senior reserve tight end Jackson Harris suffered a foot injury on Tuesday that will sideline him indefinitely.

Highly touted redshirt freshman outside linebacker Robert Beal has what Smart described as “an undisclosed injury.”

Receiver Terry Godwin (knee), linebacker Nate McBride (undisclosed) and receiver Kearis Jackson (hamstring) have yet to return to practice full-go, but are doing conditioning drills.
