    First, the bad news. Freshman tailback Sony Michel may be out for up to six weeks with a separated shoulder. It’s not known whether or not surgery will be needed. The Bulldogs have Brendan Douglas at the ready to replace Michel.

    Wide receiver Jonathon Rumph, who has been dealing with a foot injury, still isn’t ready to go. Coach Richt isn’t sure about when he will be able to return either, but it could be as early as next week at Missouri.

    The other freshman running back, Nick Chubb, is still dealing with his broken thumb, but has been able to get playing time in. His hand looked more like an actual hand rather than a stump last week.

    Junior tailback Keith Marshall still isn’t far enough along to return to the field this week, according to Richt, which means the tailback rotation will start with Todd Gurley, then Chubb and then Douglas.

    Senior cornerback Damian Swann suffered a broken thumb against Tennessee, but looks to be ok to play against Vanderbilt this week, having a hard cast up to his forearm.

    Two players that haven’t been seen in over a year are wide receivers Malcolm Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley, both of whom look to make their return against the Commodores. With the tailback injury situation a bit shaky, it will be good to have extra hands in the wide receiver corps.

    Wide receiver Chris Conley was in a non-contact jersey at practice this week, but will likely be fine for Saturday’s game.

    Offensive lineman Kolton Houston was back in practice this week after suffering a minor shin and ankle injury.

    Hopefully that will be the end of any injury reports for this week and the Dawgs can start to heal up as they head into a tough part of the shchedule.

    UPDATE: It’s now being reported that safety J.J. Green is questionable for the game against Vandy with a leg injury.
