Offensive lineman Chris Burnette (68) injured his left thumb against Florida, though he expects to play on Saturday against Ole Miss. Center David Andrews sat out of practice on Monday due to a left knee contusion.

Center David Andrews didn’t practice Monday due to a left knee contusion, according to Georgia.

Right guard Chris Burnette practiced in a cast on his left hand after injuring the thumb against Florida.

“The cast keeps me from moving it around,” Burnette said. “Nothing big.”

He injured the thumb when he fell on it on Georgia’s first offensive play. On that same play, fullback Merritt Hall sprained his right ankle.

“I didn’t realize Merritt got hurt because I was looking at my thumb and I was like, ‘Dang,’” said Burnette, who expects to play Saturday.

Hall didn’t practice Monday, according to Georgia.

Another fullback, freshman Quayvon Hicks, practiced in a limited capacity after being out with a concussion. Linebacker Chase Vasser (sprained shoulder) didn’t practice, according to the injury report
