Blog: Georgia Monday practice report (Videos of OLBs and Safeties)

The injuries in the secondary are the obvious big concern less than two weeks from the Clemson game, but the receiver corps is banged up, too.

On a day safety Tray Matthews was out, there were four receivers practicing today in non-contact jerseys for today’s full pads practice.

Malcolm Mitchell, the team‚Äôs top receiver, wasn‚Äôt at practice at all. Update: Georgia lists him as out with of practice with “knee swelling.”

The receivers in non-contact: Chris Conley (shoulder), Rantavious Wooten (hamstring), Reggie Davis (knee) and Rhett McGowan (ankle).

Matthews has dealt with hamstring and shoulder injuries. He’s practice in non-contact jerseys some days, but he wasn’t out there at all today. Not sure if he’s had a setback or not. Cornerback Sheldon Dawson is still practicing in non-contact with a shoulder injury. Linebacker Tim Kimbrough (knee) is also in non-contact.

OK, now for some videos.

Here is defensive coordinator Todd Grantham working with the outside linebackers:

And here are the safeties (minus injured Matthews)”

Now, more injury updates.

Nose guard Chris Mayes was practicing in a non-contact jersey. That’s a sign he’s getting closer to returning from a concussion.

And offensive left tackle Kenarious Gates was back after being out Friday with a strained neck. Safety Shaquille Fluker (lumbar strain) was in non-contact.

As far as position battles, Christian LeMay went third ahead of Brice Ramsey at quarterback. J.J. Green continues to run at No. 3 tailback ahead of Brendan Douglas, but they could be used situationally behind Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall.
