Georgia opens on the road this week at Vanderbilt, a position that makes it a bit tougher for the Bulldogs as opposed to a non-conference game at home.

Because it’s an SEC game, the Bulldogs are limited to 70 players on the travel roster, and a decision on that list is still to be determined by practice performances this week.

“Whoever helps us win,” Smart said when asked about how he decides which players travel.

Smart said he expects to see both QBs Riley Neal and Deuce Wallace as Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said he wouldn’t announce the starter until kickoff on Saturday.

Smart also commented on the weekend DUI arrest of freshman DL Bill Norton.

“Bill unfortunately made a very poor decision, poor choice in judgement,” Smart said. “He’ll suffer the consequences of that and very disappointed in him. He knows that we don’t accept that behavior here at the University of Georgia. He’ll be punished accordingly.”

Smart updated the injury status of LB Nakobe Dean and OL Jamaree Salyer, two players who have been limited and missed practice time recently.

He said Dean has practiced, but hasn’t been at 100 percent. But the fact that he’s practiced is promising, and since the players had a day off on Sunday, Smart expects to receive an update on his status today. Salyer is “still fighting his way back” from lower leg injury, and probably behind Dean in healing.

For RB Zamir White, who is recovering from a pair of knee injuries, Smart said,”Zamir has worked very hard conditioning wise. He is very confident in his knee and his health and is raring to go. I can tell you he is an unselfish kid who has worked his tail off to get back.”

Smart added White has played a lot in special teams roles.
