Georgia football coach Kirby Smart had the Bulldogs back to work on Tuesday.

ATHENS — Georgia football coach Kirby Smart said tailback D’Andre Swift has a sprained ankle, but outside linebacker D’Andre Walker was merely cramping up at LSU and carries no injury designation.

Swift was not at Tuesday’s practice, but Smart doesn’t anticipate the injury leading to any missed playing time. Swift has been dealing with a groin injury throughout the season.

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

As for Walker, who left the game, Smart said he’s fine.

“Walker was cramping, but he ended up fine and came back in,” Smart said. “Wyatt (leg) should be back, he was able to practice today.

“David Marshall is doubtful, Hawkins-Muckle is still out.”

The No. 8-ranked Georgia program (6-1, 4-1) plays No. 11 Florida (6-1, 4-1) in Jacksonville at 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 27 in what amounts to an SEC East Division playoff game.

Georgia football defensive back Divaad Wilson (knee) has not yet been cleared for contact and continues to progress, Smart said, and offensive lineman Ben Cleveland (leg) is progressing well.

“Ben is progressing well, he’s running underwater, where it’s not full weight bearing,” Smart said. “But he’s off the crutches and out of the boot.”
