Kirby Smart updates status of Lawrence Cager and Trey Hill ahead of Auburn
Two key players appear to be in good shape for Georgia ahead of its meeting on The Plains at Auburn.
WR Lawrence Cager was injured after he caught a 30-yard pass last week against Missouri and appeared to be favoring his left arm while going to the locker room. Georgia coach Kirby Smart said after the game that Cager probably could have returned if he needed to.
“We’re expecting Lawrence to be able to go out and practice today,” Smart said on Monday at his regular press conference. “Should be fine.”
Cager is Georgia’s leading receiver this season with 32 catches for 470 yards and four touchdowns in eight games.
Cager earlier this season missed about a game and a half with a shoulder and rib injury.
Smart also said C Trey Hill could return after he left the Missouri game with a left ankle injury. That caused some shuffling along the offensive line including Cade Mays at center.
“They’re both cleared to practice,” Smart said.
The game is set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
