SEC championship game: Ed Orgeron expecting D’Andre Swift to he healthy enough to play

The status of Georgia running back D’Andre Swift’s injured shoulder was a hot topic Friday around Mercedes-Benz Stadium with both the Bulldogs and LSU on hand for practice and coaches’ press conferences. Tigers coach Ed Orgeron said his team has been planning on seeing Swift, and also aware of the depth UGA has behind Swift.

On the other hand, UGA coach Kirby Smart once again kept his cards close to the vest regarding Swift’s status. Eye witness accounts of Swift at the Bulldogs’ walk-through didn’t yield much more information either.

Swift’s condition will be the opening topic on the final edition of Road to Atlanta, recorded live from downtown Atlanta Friday night. In addition to hearing from Orgeron and Smart on Swift, UGA fans can also watch…

  • SEC Network analyst Marcus Spears reflect on his history against UGA while playing for LSU
  • ESPN College Game Day host — and former UGA great — David Pollack evaluates whether the Bulldogs are ready for its major test against LSU
  • Former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Tim Tebow discusses the challenge UGA signal caller Jake Fromm faces minus his two top receivers during the first half Saturday
  • ESPN College Game Day host Rece Davis explains why he believes LSU’s a lock for the Playoff even if it loses to the Bulldogs
