Georgia Bulldogs Injury Report vs. Vanderbilt Commodores for Week 4:
Georgia fans rejoice, the injury list keeps getting shorter as the Dawgs prepare for their first true road game of the season against Vanderbilt.
JT Daniels looked fit as a fiddle against South Carolina last weekend and there was no mention this week of any re-aggravation of the oblique injury the kept him out of the UAB game, so all systems are go at the quarterback position.
Darnell Washington and Tykee Smith may both make their highly anticipated 2021 debuts. Head coach Kirby Smart indicated that this was a target return week and they are hopeful that could happen.
Footage from this week’s episode of SEC Inside on the SEC Network chronicling the leadup to and the in-game action between South Carolina and Georgia included a practice clip that should give Georgia fans optimism about Washington’s return to the lineup. He catches a pass from JT Daniels between two defenders and leaps to do so, looking fluid and unencumbered the entire play.
Georgia wide receiver Dominick Blaylock is looking to make his 2021 debut as well, but he’s been hampered by a hamstring issue that kept him out of the South Carolina game.
Defensive back Jalen Kimber will miss the rest of the season after having shoulder surgery to repair his labrum. He joins linebacker Rian Davis as Georgia defenders that are out for the rest of the 2021 season.
Georgia Bulldogs vs. Vanderbilt Commodores odds and betting pick for Week 4:
Georgia opened their SEC slate on Saturday with a dominant win over South Carolina. The Junkyard Dawgs defense displayed their dominance once again, scoring points for the third straight week, while a healthy JT Daniels found nine different Georgia receivers as he carved up the Gamecocks defense on his way to 303 yards passing and three touchdowns.
Georgia enters the noon matchup with Vanderbilt as a 35.0 point favorite according to the latest odds from WynnBET. WynnBET currently lists even odds for both Georgia and Vandy at -110 (bet $110 to win $100).
As the saying goes, “Good teams win, great teams cover.” That may be the only drama this week at Vanderbilt Stadium.
There’s a Grand Canyon of disparity between the talent on Georgia and Vanderbilt’s rosters. Georgia could sit every starter on the two-deep on both sides of the ball, and still walk out of Nashville with a three-touchdown win.
JT Daniels looked poised and precise in his return to the starting lineup. Expect him to build on that stellar performance by continuing to push the ball downfield and find open receivers.
This Georgia defense continues to be must-see TV every time they step on the field. Every time the opposing offense lines up, I lean up in my seat a little bit at the prospect of the Junkyard Dawgs doing something explosive.
They’ve scored in all three games thus far, and the front seven continues to dictate their opponents’ offensive flow from play one. Even when they don’t get home for a sack, the pressure is preventing the quarterback from setting his feet and forcing him to get it out quicker than he wants.
Not only is Vanderbilt completely overmatched, they’re facing a Dawgs team with a bit of an axe to grind after tapping out on their scheduled trip (twice!) to Athens to close the regular season in 2020. Georgia will come out fast and furious on both sides of the ball and sink the Commodores before they know what hit ’em. Georgia rolls, and lights up the scoreboard in the process, so we like the Dawgs to cover and we’ll take the over.
