ATHENS — Georgia football coach Kirby Smart said projected starting cornerback Tyson Campbell suffered an undisclosed injury in Saturday’s scrimmage.
“Tyson got dinged up a bit today,” Smart said, “hopefully he’ll be back.”
The injury, from all reports, was not the sort that would lead to Campbell missing an extended amount of time.
Campbell suffered a shoulder subluxation last season in the fourth game of the season against Missouri. The injury led to Campbell vomiting and coming out of the game against the Tigers, but he was back in the starting lineup the next week.
Smart made it clear there is plenty of competition and depth at the cornerback position entering the 2019 campaign.
Smart said junior college transfer D.J. Daniel has been working with the first team along with Eric Stokes, Tyrique Stevenson and Campbell.
Smart provided injury updates on other Georgia players who were missing or limited in Saturday’s scrimmage.
