ATHENS — Georgia football coach Kirby Smart said tailback D’Andre Swift will return to practice on Monday after missing much of last week with a sprained ankle.

“Swift is fine, he should be practicing today,” Smart said at his Monday press conference in Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall. “(Swift) got a lot of rehab last week.”

Smart said offensive guard Ben Cleveland (leg) will still be out, as well as run-stopping defensive end David Marshall (foot).

Inside linebacker Monty Rice (knee) is another player Smart hopes has benefitted from the bye week.

“Monty is still trying to get back to monty with his knee,” Smart said. “He’d lost a step.”

The No. 7-ranked Bulldogs (6-1, 4-1 SEC) play No. 9-ranked Florida (6-1, 4-1) at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday in Jacksonville, Fla.

Smart said last week that left tackle Andrew Thomas has yet to completely heal from the ankle injury he injured at South Carolina and has aggravated twice.

The Bulldogs were missing three defensive linemen in the 36-16 loss at LSU on Saturday, Marshall and nose guards DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle and Devonte Wyatt.

Wyatt returned to practice last week.

Georgia football defensive back Divaad Wilson (knee) has not yet been cleared for contact and continues to progress, Smart said.
