Kirby Smart updates Georgia's injury situation ahead of Week 3
Georgia coach Kirby Smart provided some updates on a few Bulldogs players’ injuries during his press conference on Monday afternoon.
Isaiah Wilson is out of a walking boot but there is no set time for his return. Smart provided details on the offensive lineman’s injury on Thursday during his call-in show.
“Isaiah got an ankle sprain,” Smart said. “Isaiah’s a tough guy. We think he’s going to be okay, but we’ll keep on driving, keep on moving. We’ve got a lot of guys who’ve played there and kind of dealt with the same kind of injury last year with Andrew (Thomas). It’s frustrating for him. It’s frustrating anytime but when you’re in the trenches, that’s what happens.”
Cornerback D.J. Daniel, who didn’t appear in the 63-17 victory over Murray State on Saturday, is dealing with a hamstring issue, per Smart, and was held out. In the opener at Vanderbilt, the junior made one tackle.
Defensive lineman Julian Rochester is cleared to play after dealing with a knee injury.
The Bulldogs are set to host Arkansas State at Noon ET on Saturday in a game that will be broadcast by ESPN2.
