Kirby Smart updates injury status of 2 key members of Georgia's offense
No. 6 Georgia is deep in preparation for the 2019 edition of the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry on Saturday against No. 11 Auburn.
From the looks of it, 2 of its most important members on offense will be ready to go.
During his media availability on Tuesday evening, Smart announced that center Trey Hill has been a full participant in the week’s practices up until now. Hill sustained an apparent injury to his ankle during the 1st quarter of last Saturday’s win over Missouri at Sanford Stadium. The sophomore has been a vital part of a Bulldogs offensive line that has yielded just 74.6 yards rushing a game—4th in FBS—while giving up just 5 sacks all season. Only Air Force has allowed fewer sacks, with 4.
Another big name that is participating well in practice is wide receiver Lawrence Cager. Cager caught 6 balls for 93 yards but had to leave in the first half after he injured his shoulder, but after the game Smart said the grad transfer was “fine” and should be ready to play on Saturday.
Cornerback Tyrique McGhee continues to not practice as he continues to recover from a foot injury. The senior hasn’t played since the Kentucky game on Oct. 19.
Georgia and Auburn kick off on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
