D’Andre Swift is dealing with a shoulder injury. And he may be heading to the NFL in only a few months. However, neither of those things is stopping the Georgia running back from trying to play in Wednesday’s Sugar Bowl against Baylor.

In an era in which some players opt to sit out of bowl games to prepare for the NFL draft, that was never a consideration for Swift, as he shared while speaking with the media on Sunday.

“I’m not the person who is going to try and sit out,” Swift told the media. Like I said, I don’t know how many more opportunities I’m going to have playing this game that I love, so if I’ve got the opportunity to go out there and play with the brothers I love, I’m going to try and do that to the best of my ability.”

The only thing that could prevent Swift from playing in the Bulldogs’ final game is possibly his shoulder. He suffered a contusion during Georgia’s game against Georgia Tech on Nov. 30.

Swift played in the SEC Championship Game vs. LSU the next week, but he was limited to two carries for 13 yards and three receptions for 18 yards.

“I just want to go out there and put my best foot forward, which I’m trying to do,” Swift said. “But I’ve got to be smart about it. I don’t want to make it worse. … If I’m able to go, I’m going to go.”

Although many are expecting Swift to declare for the upcoming NFL draft in April, he hasn’t made an official decision. And he doesn’t plan on doing so right away.

“I’m not rushing the decision, but I’m going to be smart about the decision,” Swift said. “I just want to get the right information from the right people.”

Georgia and Baylor are set to kick off on Wednesday at 8:45 p.m. ET on ESPN.
