ATHENS — “Urgency” sounded like the word of the day, Georgia coaches urging the players to perform at peak levels during the practice on Tuesday.
Bulldogs quarterback Jake Fromm appeared to be spot on. Fromm was whistling passes through a 12 mph wind, the benefit of a dry football seeming to make all the difference.
Fromm was 9-of-12 passing for 35 yards in the 21-0 win over Kentucky. The Bulldogs QB said after the game that a wet football and inclement weather had affected the game plan significantly.
The No. 10-ranked Bulldogs (6-1, 3-1 SEC) play No. 7 Florida (7-1, 4-1) in Florida at Jacksonville’s TIAA Bank Field on Nov. 2.
Both Georgia and the Gators are idle this weekend.
Georgia coach Kirby Smart said he’s hoping to get some players back healthy this week.
Cornerback Tyson Campbell would be at the top of the list.
Campbell was working at full speed in drill work with the second team on Tuesday. Campbell is looking to come off the turf toe ailment that’s sidelined him since the second half of the Arkansas State game on Sep. 14.
Cornerback Tyrique Stevenson was going through drill work with first team players after seeing extensive action against Kentucky last Saturday.
Smart has said the competition is deep at cornerback behind Eric Stokes, with DJ Daniel and Tyrique McGhee also working atop the depth chart.
Junior Solomon Kindley was back working with the first team at left guard. It’s worth noting Cade Mays and Trey Hill were both snapping the football from center during the media viewing portion of practice.
Mays has played every position on the offensive line this season except center.
Receiver Lawrence Cager, sidelined since the second half of the 20-17 overtime loss to South Carolina on Oct. 12, was not seen at practice. Cager has been playing with a separated shoulder this season, and he suffered a rib injury that sidelined him against the Gamecocks.
