Theus, Houston compete for playing time on O-line

Georgia’s John Theus figured Kolton Houston would find a place in the offensive line mix once he was cleared to play.

Turns out it’s at Theus’ right tackle position, where they are sharing first-team practice reps.

“Everybody wants to play every down, there’s no doubt about that,” Theus said. “A competitor is going to want to play every down, but then you sit back and look at it, if you’ve got a rotation going, whether you’re in 20 percent of the reps or 80 percent of the reps, you’re fresher.”

Theus said he wouldn’t’ be surprised to play both right tackle and right guard against Clemson. He is getting first- and second-team reps at right guard to spell starter Chris Burnette, who’s coming back from shoulder surgery.
