ATHENS — Reggie Carter, who has battled shoulder problems this season, was out again at Wednesday’s practice.
It’s a setback for Carter, who missed the first game, then made the trip to Vanderbilt. Coach Mark Richt acknowledged it was the shoulder again that caused him to miss Wednesday’s practice.
“It comes and goes,” Richt said.
Carter had a good start to his career, becoming the top reserve inside linebacker as a freshman, and at one point in the 2014 preseason was listed ahead of Ramik Wilson on the depth chart. Carter ended up starting one game when Wilson had an equipment problem. Carter and fellow junior Tim Kimbrough were expected to have an edge to start in 2015.
But the shoulder problem has come this year as Georgia welcomed in transfer Jake Ganus and freshmen Roquan Smith, Natrez Patrick and Juwan Taylor. And standout linebacker Leonard Floyd has played extensively at inside linebacker.
