Kirby Smart updates Georgia injuries heading into Tennessee week
Coming off its bye week, Georgia appears to be getting a little healthier as the team prepares to renew its rivalry with Tennessee this Saturday.
Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart provided updates for Georgia’s injury players Monday, saying most of them will be ready to play against Tennessee or are recovering quickly. Most notably, he said the team expects wide receiver Kearis Jackson to “be good to go this week.” He hasn’t played since breaking his hand against Vanderbilt in Week 1.
Jackson made two catches for 31 yards before departing versus the Commodores.
Smart also said cornerback Eric Stokes (knee) “will be able to practice” on Monday while guard Solomon Kindley (lower leg) should “do some work” and “be cleared to play.” Cornerback Tyson Campbell is “still limited a bit,” but Smart says he’s “recovering quickly.”
Georgia is looking to extend its winning streak to three against rivalry Tennessee. The all-time series is currently tied 23-23-2. The game will kickoff at 7 p.m. ET at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville.
