UGA cornerback Fenteng returns to practice

There was good news on the injury front Thursday with cornerback newcomer Shattle Fenteng taking part in the full pads practice in a non-contact jersey after being out for a few days.

Senior Damian Swann is still expecting the 6-foot-2, 187-pound Fenteng to contribute at cornerback.

“When you get a J.C. guy you don’t expect him to come in and not help,” Swann said. “With his size, with his ability, he’s going to be a very good player and he’s going to be great for us on the back end.”

Georgia hasn’t disclosed the nature of injuries since preseason practices started but Fenteng appeared to have an arm/shoulder issue. Coach Mark Richt said on Wednesday he would not be providing details on specific injuries, but the indication a day later is he may still be willing to give at least some information.

Outside linebacker Leonard Floyd also practiced after shedding the green non-contact jersey.

The tight end group was thin during the opening viewing periods for the media. Jay Rome, coming off foot surgery, was on a stationary bike. Jordan Davis wasn’t spotted.

Receiver Chris Conley and Justin-Scott Wesley (knee) practiced in a non-contact jersey. Inside linebacker Ryne Rankin also didn’t practice.
