ATHENS — Georgia’s best cornerback has yet to play this season, but Malkom Parrish might be available when Mississippi State visits on Saturday.
Parrish is expected to try to practice on Monday and to test the foot injury that has kept him out this season.
“We hope to be able to get him back this week, but I can’t tell you anything until after practice today,” Smart said.
Parrish, a two-year starter at cornerback, suffered a broken bone in his foot midway through August. He has missed the first three games of the season.
In Parrish’s absence, senior Aaron Davis started at left cornerback the first two weeks, before shifting to nickelback against Samford, with sophomore cornerback Tyrique McGhee moving into the starting lineup.
Meanwhile, junior receiver Michael Chigbu should be “good to go” after missing the Samford game with an injury, according to Smart.
Junior safety Rashad Roundtree, who has yet to play this season, has been dealing with a concussion, Smart said.
