ATHENS — Georgia sophomore receiver Michael Chigbu was not seen during the media viewing period of Tuesday’s practice, which could mean a number of things.
It could be a new injury. Or Chigbu could have been taking care of off-field obligations. Or he might have been out there but for some reason was not with the receivers. Head coach Kirby Smart is due to address the media after practice.
Senior receiver Reggie Davis continues to practice in a black non-contact jersey. He missed the Auburn game with a shoulder injury. Davis was participating in throwing drills, as he did last week in practice, but as the media left Tuesday Davis came off and headed towards the athletic training area.
Meanwhile, two other key players are still not practicing.
Junior guard Isaiah Wynn and sophomore defensive lineman DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle were working on the side away from the rest of the team. That’s what they were doing on Monday too.
Wynn sprained his knee in the Auburn game. Hawkins-Muckle has missed the past two games with a high ankle sprain.
In Wynn’s place, Dyshon Sims is still working with the first team at left guard, as he did after Wynn’s injury during the game. The rest of the first team remains the same.
The second team offensive line during Tuesday’s media viewing period was (left to right): Kendall Baker, Pat Allen, Billy Seward, Solomon Kindley and Aulden Bynum.
O-line coach Sam Pittman was getting on his unit early in drills, unhappy with them not finishing the drill.
“I’m tired of seeing you guys stop at the second level!” Pittman yelled at one point.
But later Pittman was more complimentary, giving Allen praise.
Finally, another injury note: Inside linebacker Natrez Patrick continues to practice in a black non-contact jersey, as he did last week before missing the Auburn game with a shoulder injury. He was not with the first team during a drill; Reggie Carter and Roquan Smith were the first-teamers.
