Georgia football coach Kirby Smart updates injuries, many ‘day-to-day’
ATHENS — Georgia coach Kirby Smart indicated none of the injuries his players are dealing with are of the season-ending variety.
The No. 3-ranked Bulldogs (4-0) have a bye this week coming off a 23-17 win over Notre Dame last Saturday night.
Left guard Solomon Kindley (ankle) did not practice on Tuesday, but Smart said he is day-to-day after getting knocked out of the Notre Dame in the second quarter.
“Solomon didn’t practice today, but he’ll be day to day,” Smart said. “We think he’ll be fine.”
The Bulldogs’ starting cornerbacks, Eric Stokes (knee) and Tyson Campbell (foot), are also working their way back toward being back at 100 percent.
Stokes was injured on the second defensive play Saturday night and missed most of the game before putting himself back in late in the fourth quarter, even at less than 100 percent.
“Eric was not able to go today, we think he’s going to be fine,” Smart said following Tuesday’s practice. “He was a little sore, he jogged (Monday), he ran today, but he wasn’t able to practice.
“Tyson is working out, training, running but not able to practice.”
Defensive end David Marshall is still bothered by the lisfranc injury he suffered last season and was limited to what Smart said was “10 or 11” snaps against the Irish.
“David has had his foot injury, it has bothered him all year,” Smart said. He’s played but it continuously bothers him, so we’re trying to help him out with that and relieving him a little bit.”
Kearis Jackson, who suffered a broken hand in the Aug. 31 opener at Vanderbilt, continues to work with his hand wrapped in a small club.
The defensive line was pushing through drills with Julian Rochester (knee) running with the second group.
Rochester has yet to play this season after undergoing knee surgery last January, but he could be back for the next game.
Georgia returns to action against the Vols in a 7 p.m. kick on OCt. 5 in Knoxville at Neyland Stadium.
