Where Has Starting Left Tackle Isaiah Wynn Been Lately?
Kirby Smart met with the media on Tuesday and provided some answers regarding a few of Georgia’s injured players.
By now you have most likely read that Georgia’s starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn has been missing from practice the past few days. The reason for his absence was unknown, but head coach Kirby Smart has provided us with some answers.
“A little bit of an illness,” Kirby said regarding the senior lineman’s absence from practice.
Kirby added that sophomore defensive lineman Michail Carter has also been sick this week.
“So we’ve held them out the last two days, and just kind of took their helmets from them so they couldn’t go,” Kirby said.
Entering the spring, Wynn (Saint Petersburg, Florida) was named UGA’s starting left tackle after spending the majority of his time at Georgia at the offensive guard position. Wynn will be an important piece to offensive line coach Sam Pittman’s front wall this season. He and center Lamont Gaillard are the only two returning starters from last year’s line…and as David Andrews taught us, leadership is everything on an offensive line.
Dyshon Sims has been filling in for Wynn at left tackle the past two days.
Also of note, freshman wide receiver JJ Hollomam has suffered “a little hamstring twinge,” according to Kirby. It does not look to be serious, but he is being held out of practice for the time being.
