Georgia football had its first day of full pads practice. The media only got a 15-minute viewing period if it was mostly the individual period of practice. Oh Kirby you sly dog, you!
So really the media got nothing out of the viewing, but seeing what they were reporting on, there were some interesting things they saw. First is injuries. Kendall Milton, Kamari Lassiter, and Rara Thomas were the big names that were sidelined for that period of practice.
At this point in Milton’s career, we have to decide if he is made out of glass or is just cursed with bad injury luck. Milton runs guys over so I am just going to guess, cursed with bad injury luck.
Rara Thomas has not been in the mix of receivers who will get the majority of snaps, so far. So if he is unable to go that might hurt him with the number of snaps he gets this season. Reports are saying Milton, Lassiter, and Thomas should all be good to go for week one. Which is great news.
The quarterback battle rages on and many that viewed practice thought that Carson Beck looked sharp. Now the QB was throwing on air, so don’t take too much from that. But many that watched the QBs said they all looked good, but Beck looked the best out of all of them. Beck did not throw an incompletion.
Speaking of QBs Receivers and Tight Ends were in the drill with the QB. Smart was heard pushing Oscar Delp and Lawson Luckie. Smart probably wants them both to contribute enough to fill the void of Darnell Washington, who left for the NFL.
Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint, Dillon Bell, Dominic Lovett, and Ladd McConkey all seemed to get first-team reps.
The offensive line battle seems to be between two guys now. Earnest Greene and Austin Blaske are competing to replace Broderick Jones at left tackle.
Greene was getting first-team reps, with Blaske taking some. The starting Offensive line for right now seems to go: Earnest Greene, Xavier Truss, Sedrick Van Pran, Tate Ratledge, and Amarius Mims.
Also, Jeff Foxworthy was at practice. Star-studded practice.
