ATHENS — Nick Chubb was missing for a second straight Georgia practice, at least during the media viewing period.
Chubb, who sprained his ankle last Saturday at Ole Miss, was not seen during Tuesday’s practice, a day after not being seen on Monday. Head coach Kirby Smart and teammates had expressed optimism in Chubb being able to play against Tennessee, but at minimum this means Chubb isn’t 100 percent ready to go.
Sony Michel, who would be in line for a much larger role if Chubb can’t go, was going first in a play polish drill. For what it’s worth, the order following him was Elijah Holyfield, Brian Herrien and Brendan Douglas.
Meanwhile, it looks like an in-game change from last Saturday is carrying over to this week.
Deandre Baker was getting first-team reps at cornerback during Tuesday’s practice. So was Malkom Parrish, who Baker replaced during Saturday’s game.
The odd man out is Juwuan Briscoe, who was also yanked at Ole Miss. In fact Briscoe didn’t go in when the second-team secondary went in during the media viewing period. Instead it was freshmen Tyrique McGhee and Mecole Hardman at cornerback. Briscoe was in a regular jersey and did not appear hurt.
Also of note: Aaron Davis was the first-team safety, rather than Quincy Mauger, who was with the second team. Those two have been going back and forth this season.
The first-team nickel back remains Maurice Smith, with the second-teamer being Rico McGraw.
Two other notes:
- Brice Ramsey was again working just with the specialists during the media viewing periods. Only Jacob Eason and Greyson Lambert were participating in a throwing drill. Ramsey, who has had a wrap on his right throwing hand since last week, was throwing on Monday, but not Tuesday. He did not make the trip to Ole Miss.
- And there was again no apparent change in the first team offensive line.
