ATHENS — The tailback position appears to have taken another depth hit, but this one doesn’t look long term.
Shaquery Wilson, a converted wide receiver, was not participating in Tuesday’s practice during the media viewing period. Instead the sophomore athlete was on an exercise bike, wearing a brace on his left knee. He could be seen later working on the side, stretching.
Wilson is dealing with a bone bruise and is “day-to-day,” head coach Kirby Smart said after practice.
“He’s going to be fine,” Smart said. “It’s really just a painful injury.”
Wilson did have his helmet on, so it was possible he would participate in practice later on a limited basis.
Georgia is already without junior Sony Michel, who is sidelined with a broken arm. Starter Nick Chubb is practicing but continues to recover from major knee surgery last October.
During drills at Tuesday’s practice, Chubb was first in line for tailback reps, followed by Brendan Douglas, Tae Crowder and Elijah Holyfield.
