Two Key Georgia Defensive Players Miss Wednesday’s Practice
The Georgia Bulldogs took to the indoors Wednesday as they practiced for their game with Missouri this Saturday.
With temperatures approaching 90° and high humidity in Athens, the Indoor Practice Facility is proving to be a wise investment.
Junior defensive tackle Trenton Thompson and graduate linebacker Reggie Carter, who each did not play against Vanderbilt, were not on the practice field.
Thompson sprained the MCL in his knee two weeks ago during the Tennessee game. Carter also left the Tennessee game with an injury. Both would be starting if healthy.
Inside linebacker Natrez Patrick, in the second week of a four-game suspension, also won’t suit up for the Dawgs on Saturday, although he participated in practice. Junior Juwan Taylor, who has seven tackles this season, started in place of Patrick and Carter against Vandy. Freshman linebacker Monty Rice, 10th on the Dawgs in tackles with 13, also saw considerable action.
Senior outside linebacker Davin Bellamy practiced with his left hand heavily bandaged, much the same way he had it taped against the Commodores. Bellamy believes the heavy bandage (protecting a broken bone) would only be necessary for another week.
Redshirt freshman guard Solomon Kindley, who has been nicked up lately, was practicing at full speed. Seeing Kindley and freshman tackle Andrew Thomas lining up next to each other should make DawgNation smile. Having two freshman on the offensive line in the SEC is rare….having two freshman excel on the line is quite rare.
