ATHENS — Georgia got a couple of starters back on the practice field on Tuesday, though neither cornerback Tyson Campbell nor Solomon Kindley was was plugged in with the first team units.
It was Campbell’s first practice back since injuring his right foot in the first half of the Bulldogs’ 55-0 win over Arkansas State on Sept. 14. Campbell appeared to be testing his right foot, running in place.
Freshman cornerback Tyrique Stevenson was also receiving counsel from trainers. Stevenson did not appear to have a serious injury.
Junior college transfer DJ Daniel played in place of Campbell against Notre Dame and continued to work with the first team on Tuesday.
Kindley, who suffered an ankle injury the second quarter of Georgia’s 23-17 win over Notre Dame on Sept. 21, was working with the second team offensive line during the media viewing portion of practice. Kindley did not appear full speed.
Junior Justin Shaffer, who replaced Kindley against the Irish, continued to work with the first team.
There was a businesslike tempo in Tuesday’s practice. The players moved purposely from one drill to the next, inside and outside.
Coach Kirby Smart splits the practice time for the offense and defense between the air conditioned indoor facility and the outside fields.
Temperatures in Athens during Tuesday’s practice ranged from the low- to mid-90s, with a heat index approaching 100.
Quarterback Jake Fromm looked particularly sharp during his indoor session.
Fromm and the UGA QBs were throwing an array of routes to receivers. The Bulldogs are expected to dial up the pass game when Tennessee overloads the box and presents single coverage.
Georgia is a three-touchdown favorite over the Vols in Saturday’s game, which kicks off at 7 p.m. and will be televised by ESPN.
The all-time series between the programs is tied at 23-23-2. The Vols are 12-11-1 against UGA all-time in games played in Knoxville.
