Swift confirmed today with the media that he has been dealing with a groin injury this season and hasn’t been completely healthy.
Most of this season he has played sparingly, but it wasn’t until the MTSU game that he was pulled early that most fans noticed there was something wrong.
“It was a coach’s decision,” Swift said. “I was kind of banged up earlier, but it was a coach’s decision.”
The good news is Swift mentioned he felt fine against Missouri. He carried the ball sixteen times which is the most he’s had in a single game at Georgia.
Swift is now trying to maintain his health and keeps a strict schedule in order to keep his groin in check.
“I get treatment at 7 in the morning every day just to get ready for practice,” Swift said. “I’m good now.”
While Georgia has plenty of playmakers at running back, Swift getting back in his groove benefits the offense tremendously.
Now that Swift is ready to take on more of a role in Georgia’s backfield, its only a matter of time before he has his moment.
“I’m looking for that breakout game,” Swift said. “It will come. I’m not really trying to press it, but it will come.”
