Two players listed as starters for the Black team defense were out with injuries.
Star/nickel back J.J. Green (ankle) and safety Tray Matthews (hamstring) were scratched before the game.
Matthews missed time as a freshman due to hamstring issues and Georgia coach Mark Richt said he pulled a hamstring again.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs had some chronic hamstring issues, which we probably need to reevaluate what we‚Äôre doing with him and how we train,‚Äù Richt said. ‚ÄúThere‚Äôs something going on. He‚Äôs probably got to take some more ownership too. … He might need to spend a little more time with flexibility stuff in the offseason than maybe another guy might have to.‚Äù
Matthews indicated an injury wasn‚Äôt a big issue when asked why he didn‚Äôt play Saturday.
‚ÄúCoach (Jeremy) Pruitt wanted me for the regular season,‚Äù he said.
Matthews was one of three defensive players who were arrested prior to spring practice on theft by deception charges for ‚Äúdouble-dipping‚Äù university issued tuition checks.
Defensive linemen Jonathan Taylor (three tackles) and James DeLoach (one tackle) both started for the Black Team.
The other player arrested, receiver Uriah LeMay, caught a 41-yard touchdown pass for the Black Team.
Richt has not announced any suspensions yet for the players.
Redshirt sophomore walk-on Clay Johnson had five catches for 75 yards to lead the Black Team. ‚ÄúI was just trying to play football,‚Äù the Calhoun High product said. ‚ÄúI was just out there trying to get open and hoping the ball would come my way and knew I had to make the catch when it came.‚Äù … Tight end Jordan Davis, who has been sidelined with a sprained knee, didn‚Äôt play.
