ATHENS — It has been four days, and still no sign of Isaiah Wynn.
Georgia’s starting left tackle was absent at the Bulldogs’ practice again Thursday. Earlier this week, coach Kirby Smart said the senior was out with an undisclosed illness.
With the starter out, senior Dyshon Sims took turns at left tackle during drill work that occurred during a 12-minute media observation period. Also getting snaps there were junior D’Marcus Hayes and junior Kendall Baker.
It was the status quo elsewhere in the offensive line.
Other observations from practice on Thursday:
- Sophomore defensive tackle Michail Carter, who also had been out since last week with an undisclosed illness, was back at full speed and without limitations with the rest of the defensive linemen.
- Freshman wide receiver J.J. Holloman ran on the side under the supervision of sports medicine chief Ron Courson. Holloman has been out since Saturday with a hamstring injury.
- Receivers coach James Coley got onto his charges pretty hard after witnessing too many drops during pass-skeleton work.
- The Bulldogs practiced in full pads again Thursday, the 10th practice of preseason camp. It was an extremely hot and humid day. Georgia’s workout began about an hour earlier than usual.
- Observing practice was Floyd McClendon, a former U.S. Navy SEAL and chief special warfare officer who works as a motivational speaker, according to his LinkedIn profile. The Bulldogs annually have had Navy SEALS speak to the players and consult the team on training and motivation methods.
- Smart was scheduled to be available for a briefing following practice Thursday.
