ATHENS — It looks like the injury to Georgia tailback D’Andre Swift, whatever it is, will not be long-term. Or even past this week.

Swift, who was absent from practice on Tuesday, is expected back as soon as Wednesday’s practice, head coach Kirby Smart said after Tuesday’s practice.

“He’s getting some medical things checked on,” Smart said, not specifying further, but adding: “He should be fine.”

Swift hurt his ankle in Saturday’s scrimmage, and was absent from practice on Tuesday. He has been impressive in preseason practice so far, contending for at least some role on the offense, either at tailback, or in the slot, and also on special teams.

Meanwhile, long snapper Trent Frix is out right now with a hamstring injury. He should be back soon, Smart indicated. The backup snapper is former baseball player Nick Moore.
