Kirby Smart shares injury update ahead of Georgia-Kentucky
Heading into the Week 4 game against Alabama, Georgia linebacker Monty Rice was dealing with an injury. Rice, the team’s leading tackler, was seen sporting a walking boot, but ultimately suited up against the Crimson Tide.
During his Tuesday press conference, Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart was asked for the latest on Rice and sophomore running back Kenny McIntosh, who suffered a minor knee injury in the UA game.
“We’re hopeful on Kenny that he will be able to play and it’s the same with Monty,” Smart told reporters. “He was able to practice in a limited amount with his foot sprained. He was able to go in the Alabama game, and we certainly are thankful for that. We gave him some time off in the off week and recover. His biggest focus was to maintain his cardio.”
Smart was also asked about redshirt junior wide receiver Matt Landers and redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Owen Condon.
“Yeah, Matt is good,” Smart said. “He practiced today. He’s good. He’s still got lingering effects but we think he’s going to be able to play and he’s done a good job. Owen, I think he’s at 95 percent. He’s taking all the reps with the twos at right tackle and he’s back good to go.”
