Georgia was hit with injuries at every offensive skill position last season.
There were season-ending ACL injuries to receivers Malcolm Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley, tailback Keith Marshall and quarterback Aaron Murray.
Tight end wasn‚Äôt immune to the walking wounded.
Jay Rome missed the final four games with a right foot injury and didn‚Äôt practice this spring after offseason surgery.
With Arthur Lynch now in the NFL, redshirt freshman Jordan Davis from Thomson has a chance to gain playing time at the position after sustaining a knee injury this spring that he called ‚Äúa partial LCL tear.‚Äù
He said he‚Äôs 100 percent now and not limited. Georgia opens preseason practices on Aug. 1.
‚ÄúHeading into August, I‚Äôm just looking to pick back off where I left off,‚Äù the 6-foot-4, 225-pound Davis said. ‚ÄúI‚Äôm pretty confident I‚Äôm learning the playbook pretty well and I just need to get back to my normal self. ‚Ä¶I‚Äôm pretty sure they‚Äôll need me to contribute a little. Depth is always good.‚Äù
Going along the lines of offensive coordinator Mike Bobo‚Äôs plan to use Quayvon Hicks as an H-back after the fullback worked at tight end this spring, Georgia doesn‚Äôt list the tight end position on its depth chart.
It‚Äôs simply the ‚ÄúH‚Äù now.
The scholarship players at the position are Rome, Davis, Hicks and freshman Jeb Blazevich. Freshman Hunter Atkinson left the team early this summer.
Blazevich is ‚Äúyoung, but he‚Äôs catching on pretty fast,‚Äù Davis said of the highly-regarded Charlotte, N.C., product.
