ATHENS — Kirby Smart said earlier in the day that Isaiah Wynn should be able to play this week, and lo and behold, there was the junior back with the offensive line at Wednesday’s practice.
Wynn sprained his knee in last Saturday’s win over Auburn, and was not participating the first two days of practice. But Wynn was with the first team on Wednesday, a good sign for his availability Saturday against Louisiana-Lafayette.
Wynn, who starts at left guard, has started 23 straight games.
The news isn’t as good with a few other players:
- Defensive tackle DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle (ankle) is still on the side, working on his own. The sophomore has missed the past two games an it’s looking like it could be three.
- There was no sign of receiver Michael Chigbu, who has missed two straight practices with a knee issue. Smart termed Chigbu “questionable” earlier in the day.
- Inside linebacker Natrez Patrick, who didn’t play against Auburn because of a shoulder injury, continues to be in a black non-contact jersey. He was working with the second team during one drill.
- Senior receiver Reggie Davis also remains in a black jersey, though Smart has said he’s hopeful Davis can play. Sophomore receiver Jayson Stanley has already been ruled out for a third straight game with a foot injury.
- And one new injury to report: Fullback Glenn Welch, the top backup, was in a black jersey. But Welch was participating in drills during the media viewing period.
