Georgia practice reports shed more light on injuries to Lawrence Cager, Brian Herrien
Georgia WR Lawrence Cager missed his second straight practice on Tuesday as he battles rib and shoulder injuries, according to multiple reports as the Bulldogs dealt with a host of injuries across the roster.
Cager, who has had at least one injury for a couple of weeks, missed the end of the South Carolina game, and has missed both days of practice this week. Travon Walker and Nate McBride were also missing, according to Seth Emerson of The Athletic. Meanwhile RB Brian Herrien, who sat out the game on Saturday with back spasms, has been back on the field both days this week.
The offensive line, which gave up 3 sacks against the Gamecocks, is shuffling again because of injury. Coach Kirby Smart reported on Monday that Justin Shaffer would be out for this week’s game against Kentucky. Without Shaffer, Georgia practiced with Cade Mays at left guard and Ben Cleveland at right guard.
In the secondary, Tyson Campbell was back practicing as he tries to return from a turf toe injury, the Red and Black reported.
The Bulldogs will play UK at 6 p.m. on Saturday in a game to be televised by ESPN. Georgia is a 25-point favorite in the game.
