With top fullback Merritt Hall sidelined with an undisclosed injury, freshman Detric Bing-Dukes from Tucker worked at fullback in Monday morning‚Äôs Georgia football practice.
Whether the powerful Bing-Dukes is being looked at for the position beyond preseason camp remains to be seen.
‚ÄúIt was a fast change,‚Äù freshman tailback Nick Chubb said. ‚ÄúIt was great to get him in the (running backs) room with us.‚Äù
The 6-foot, 230-pound Bing-Dukes switched between fullback and inside linebacker on Monday, Chubb said. Coaches weren‚Äôt available to comment.
Georgia isn‚Äôt providing injury updates so far this preseason so there was no word on the nature of Hall‚Äôs injury. He was on the field in a non-contact jersey but not practicing.
The Bulldogs previously moved Quayvon Hicks from fullback to the tight end position before spring practice.
