ATHENS — If you wear No. 6 for the Georgia football team, you’re also wearing a black jersey at Wednesday’s practice.
Receiver Javon Wims was in a black non-contact jersey, though it did not appear his injury was that serious. Wims was going through drills and catching passes during the media viewing period. He had no obvious injury.
Wims was the team’s leading receiver in last Saturday’s win at Kentucky.
Inside linebacker Natrez Patrick, who also wears No. 6, remained in a non-contact jersey. Patrick injured his shoulder at Kentucky but has been practicing all week.
Receiver Reggie Davis, also dealing with a shoulder injury, also remains in a black jersey, but like Wims was going through drills.
Normally when a player is in a black jersey it’s just precautionary and they have a good chance of playing in that week’s game.
But defensive lineman DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle, who has an ankle sprain, remains in a walking boot. Hawkins-Muckle was on an exercise bike at Wednesday’s practice.
One non-injury note: It seems that Georgia is working in reserves during first-team work early in practice. On Wednesday it was sophomore Jarvis Wilson, working at safety with the rest of the first team. A day earlier it was Johnny O’Neal at inside linebacker.
