Georgia defensive back Tyrique McGhee had an interceptions and a pass break-up in the Bulldogs' win in Jacksonville in 2018, but he didn't travel to this year's game on account of a foot injury.

Georgia football coach Kirby Smart reveals more injuries

ATHENS — Georgia coach Kirby Smart revealed why defensive back Tyrique McGhee didn’t travel to Jacksonville, explaining the senior has aggravated a foot injury.

“Tyrique is dealing with his foot again, his foot tweaked on him during the off week and he’s had surgery done on that foot,” Smart said. “We’re having to be really careful with him. He didn’t travel to Florida and it’s not 100 percent.”

The No. 6-ranked Bulldogs (7-1, 4-1 SEC) play host to Missouri 5-3, 2-2) at 7 p.m. on Saturday at Sanford Stadium.

Smart said sophomore linebacker Channing Tindall, who was not at the Florida game or at Monday practice, is also dealing with an injury.

“He actually got hurt in the Kentucky game, he’s been beat up a bit,” Smart said. “We think he’s going to get back here soon. I don’t know if it will be this week but it should be the next.”

Smart explained why senior defensive linemen Michael Barnett and David Marshall didn’t play in the 24-17 win over Florida last Saturday.

Barnett, Smart said, has an undisclosed “nagging” injury.

Marshall didn’t play because of the style of game the Bulldogs’ battle turned into. Marshall is better known for his run-stopping ability, and the Bulldogs have some talented pass rushers on the defensive line.
