Kirby Smart explains where George Pickens is at in his rehab from knee injury
Kirby Smart addressed the media Tuesday in Athens at his weekly press conference, and the Georgia head coach updated the status of injured star receiver George Pickens.
According to The Athletic’s Seth Emerson, Smart said Pickens had seen Dr. James Andrews and was cleared for non-contact route-running drills this week.
That is good news for fans of the No. 2 Bulldogs (3-0), but Emerson also noted that Smart did not give any timelines for Pickens’ return to the field.
