Georgia practice report: Updates on Malkom Parrish and offensive line
ATHENS — It’s not that much of a surprise, but it appears Georgia is still at least a week away from getting back starting cornerback Malkom Parrish.
Parrish, who missed the first two games of the season after foot surgery, was categorized as week to week by coach Kirby Smart. Parrish was not seen during the media viewing period of practice on Tuesday.
Smart used the same term to describe the status of quarterback Jacob Eason, who sustained a sprained knee ligament in the opener and sat out the Notre Dame game. Eason spent the game using a crutch, and it doesn’t look as if he will return anytime soon.
Players who were seen at practice were Kendall Baker and Solomon Kindley, who played with the first team. Those two guard spots have been in flux the first two weeks, with Baker, a junior, getting his first start on Saturday, and Kindley, a redshirt freshman, coming off the bench to get his first extended action. Kindley worked with the first team throughout the preseason until he sustained an ankle injury
A few other notes from the media viewing period:
- Freshman Mark Webb was again on defense, working with the cornerbacks. Webb was recruited as a receiver and played that spot throughout preseason and until last week, when he made the trip to Notre Dame as a defensive back.
- Junior reserve safety Rashad Roundtree was not seen. Smart said a couple of weeks ago that Roundtree was dealing with an injury.
- Senior tailback Sony Michel, who got his ankle taped late in the Notre Dame game, practiced in a regular jersey with no apparent limits. (Update: Michel is actually being limited in practice this week but Kirby Smart still expects him to play, he said after practice.)
