Kirby Smart: Georgia football injury status for Lawrence Cager and Trey Hill

ATHENS — Georgia coach Kirby Smart had positive news on receiver Lawrence Cager and center Trey Hill at his Monday press conference.

“We’re expecting Lawrence to practice today,” Smart said. “And Trey has an ankle (sprain), but he’s going to be able to practice today, as far as we know.

“They are both cleared to practice.”

The No. 5-ranked Bulldogs (8-1, 5-1 SEC) play at No. 13 Auburn (7-2, 4-2) at 3:30 p.m. at Jordan-Hare Stadium (TV: CBS).

Georgia can clinch a trip to the SEC Championship Game with a win over the Tigers, who enter the game coming off a bye week.

Cager aggravated his shoulder injury in the second quarter of the 27-0 win over Missouri last Saturday and didn’t return to the game.

Hill left the game at the end of the first quarter with a left ankle sprain and didn’t return to action.

Georgia cornerback Tyson Campbell saw his first action since the Arkansas State game on Sept. 14. Campbell, a talented sophomore, had been dealing with a painful turf toe ailment.

Smart said outside linebacker Walter Grant didn’t dress for the game because of an undisclosed injury. He described Grant as “day to day.”

Defensive back Tyrique McGhee has been out with a foot injury.
