Grantham: Harvey-Clemons will go full speed at practice Wednesday

Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said safety Josh Harvey-Clemons made it through Tuesday’s practice without any setbacks on a foot injury he suffered against Vanderbilt. He said Harvey-Clemons, who was in a non-contact jersey Tuesday, will go full speed today depending on how he feels before practice begins.

“I think the key will be how he feels [today] relative to how much work he got [Tuesday] because he did pretty much everything we would ask him to do in a practice,” Grantham said. “… But right now it’s on target for him to be able to help us and contribute.”

When Harvey-Clemons went down against Vanderbilt, defensive back Damian Swann moved into the nickel and Sheldon Dawson came in at cornerback. Grantham said if Harvey-Clemons is healthy for Saturday’s game, Swann will move back to cornerback.

“I think Damian plays the nickel well,” Grantham said. “… If Josh is back, we’ll continue to let Josh play that role and play cinco outside. But there’s nothing to say that moving forward we couldn’t switch that.”
