Georgia could be getting a wave of reinforcements for its SEC Championship Game matchup vs. Alabama.

On Thursday, Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart provided an update regarding a quartet of injured players — wide receiver Kearis Jackson (rib), running back Kendall Milton (knee), tackle Jamaree Salyer (foot) and safety Christopher Smith (knee). Smart told reporters (including The Athletic’s Seth Emerson) that he remains “hopeful” all 4 will play Saturday.

“They’ve been able to participate in parts of practice and feel good about them,” Smart said, per Emerson. “But again it’ll boil down to game-time decision, how they are in warmups and how they look.”

Salyer missed last week’s game against Georgia Tech, so redshirt freshman Broderick Jones started at left tackle. It seems likely that would be the case again this week if Salyer can’t play.

Jackson got injured during the win over Georgia Tech, while Milton has missed 6 games and Smith has sat out 2. If the Bulldogs can get any of these players back, it would give them a boost.

Georgia is looking to win its 1st SEC championship since 2017. It’s also aiming to beat Alabama for the 1st time since 2007.

The SEC Championship Game is set for Saturday at 4 p.m. ET on CBS.
