Bulldogs Practice Report: Dogs Trying to Get Healthy

The Georgia Bulldogs are coming off a huge victory and have extended their winning streak to two games, but the team is still nursing some injuries from these past two wins.
The Bulldogs went into their game against the Auburn Tigers missing a couple starters but were able to grind their opponent down and earn the victory.
However, they lost another starter in the process in starting left guard Isaiah Wynn, who seems to be day-to-day with a slight MCL sprain in his left knee, but the staff is hopeful that he will be able to return for the Bulldogs game against the Ragin’ Cajuns of Louisiana-Lafayette.
Wynn was seen at practice today doing some light high knee workouts with Daquan Hawkins-Muckle and a trainer that I believed to be Ron Courson.
Wynn seemed to struggle with putting full weight on his left knee, which is not serious but points to the fact that the slight sprain is still bothering him.
Wynn’s availability against Louisiana-Lafayette will definitely be something to keep an eye on as the week progresses.
With Wynn not practicing as a normal participant, Dyshon Sims has taken his place at the left guard position and the rest of the offensive line has remained the same.
Ben Cleveland was getting some reps at left tackle with the third team, which was interesting because he usually reps at one of the guard spots.
I am not saying that Cleveland will see playing time there or even start on the offensive line next year, but the future possibility of Cleveland playing left tackle is a bit intriguing.
Hawkins-Muckle, who is nursing a knee injury from the Kentucky game, should be good to go according to head coach Kirby Smart and he seemed to have a high level of comfort in putting pressure on his knee in practice today.
Starting inside linebacker Natrez Patrick was unable to go against the Auburn Tigers because he was not medically cleared but Kirby Smart and his staff are very hopeful that he will be ready to go against the Ragin’ Cajuns this week.
Patrick was seen in a black non-contact jersey today and he should be good to go for their next game.
Reggie Davis was also another player who missed the Auburn game and he continued to sport a black non-contact jersey in practice on Monday.
Davis’ availability is definitely questionable and they may choose to not push him because of how the young talent has played in the past couple of games.
These Bulldog starters ability to get healthy and return to their normal starting roles will definitely be a storyline throughout the week.
