Blog: UGA Preseason Practice Day 4

It’s a rare Sunday Georgia football practice today.

Given the window to get in 29 practices before the Boise State game, Georgia is working out today and will go through Saturday before taking next Sunday off.

There were a few raindrops falling when the 15-minute portion of practice open to the media began. Heavier ran was coming down when we left the field. The team should remain out there as long as there’s no lightning in the area.

A few items:

–The players bothered by hamstring injuries remain out: cornerback Brandon Boykin, safety Jakar Hamilton and outside linebacker Cornelius Washington.

–Freshman receiver Malcolm Mitchell was lined up ahead of Israel Troupe at split end and behind Marlon Brown and Michael Bennett. Mitchell caught the couple of balls I saw thrown his way.

–Nose guard John Jenkins is practicing in jersey No. 66. Georgia says it does not have a No. 6 jersey that fits the 6-3, 351-pounder. It did when the team practiced without shoulder pads, but with them on he‚Äôs got to wear 66. A bigger No. 6 jersey is on the way.
