Kirby Smart discusses Anthony Richardson, updates Kendall Milton's health status
Georgia heads into its bye week at 7-0 on the season and ranked No. 1 in the country.
It has been a great start toward repeating as national champions. But there’s plenty of work still to be done.
The Bulldogs have 3 ranked teams remaining on their schedule, including No. 3 Tennessee, as well as rivalry games against Florida and Georgia Tech.
Next up will be the matchup with the Gators, a game in which Georgia will have to contend with dangerous, dual-threat quarterback Anthony Richardson.
“He’s super-talented as a runner and thrower,” Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart said during Wednesday’s weekly SEC coaches teleconference. “He’s got a bazooka for an arm. We’ve seen him before. He’s really, really hard to tackle. … You can tell he’s getting more and more comfortable in (Billy Napier’s) system.”
Also on Wednesday, Smart offered an update on the health status of RB Kendall Milton, who was injured 2 weeks ago against Auburn and sidelined on Saturday against Vanderbilt.
“He’s pushed really hard,” Smart said. “… He’s doing everything the team’s doing. We’re hopeful to get him back soon.”
Georgia’s matchup with Florida on Oct. 29 will be televised by CBS at 3:30 p.m. (ET).
