Blog: Georgia practice report: Day 4 (with videos)

It’s a rare Sunday practice for Georgia.

Safety Tray Matthews is out there wearing a green non-contact jersey for an undisclosed injury. He was going through some early drills, but wasn’t in shoulder pads.

If this was a game week, that would be cause for major concern. Georgia doesn’t play its first game for nearly four weeks still.

Players gets Sundays off during the season.

Not the coaches. During the season, they review film and work on the next week’s opponent.

“We’re going to go every single day and I’d love to say we take Sundays off for football but we don’t,” coach Mark Richt said before preseason camp. “Players do, but the coaches don’t.”

Richt had at one time given coaches Sundays off, too, but that just ended up increasing their workload for the rest of the week.

Also in non-contact jerseys today: linebacker Davin Bellamy (shoulder) and receiver Michael Erdman (strained hamstring).

Josh Dawson was with the outside linebackers for the second straight day after working at defensive end.

Interesting to see Christian Robinson now working with the inside linebackers as a graduate assistant. Robinson worked with freshman Ryne
Rankin in one drill, telling him, “I want to see some contact.”

Again, Georgia is asking that video does not include any practice audio. So we bring you the Georgia outside linebackers with Todd Grantham, accompanied by a song called “Rodd and Todd” in honor of Grantham.

And we bring you the Bulldogs offensive line, with some Blind Melon.

And we’re going with some electronica called “Passing Melody” for this passing drill.
