Georgia opened its bye week up to the media on Tuesday afternoon. The team took it back to the basics and made sure to make this week about themselves. Steve and I break down our takeaways from each side of the ball from the bye week practice.
Savannah’s Offense Report
— I noticed the offensive line work through a downfield blocking drill. The lineman would start under the chute and then run full force into the guy holding the blocking dummy.
— Jim Chaney had his tight ends work through one-on-one blocking when the media first got there
— Chaney yelled at the guys holding the tackling dummies, “Cram it in their face!” He tried to get the guys blocking to pop the bag harder.
— Cortez Hankton had the receivers work through various route and footwork drills. He told his group, “get all that money!”
— The running backs worked on handoff drills and then letting the backs react to whichever hold the assistants gave them.
— D’Andre Swift wasn’t there at practice while we were out there. We haven’t heard about an injury from him or anything, but we see Kirby later, and I’m sure it’ll get brought up during that.
— Quarterbacks worked through some footwork drills then through passing on the run drill. After that, they moved to throw various routes to the receivers. Both Jake Fromm and Justin Fields seemed back to normal, but in my opinion, I thought Fields appeared a bit more accurate.
— I saw scouts from the Titans, Raiders, and Lions out there watching various positions.
Steve’s Defense Report
— David Marshall was not seen at practice again.
— Devonte Wyatt still has a brace on his left knee but was participating in defensive line drills. Looks like he is on track to play against Florida.
— D’Andre Walker was fine after leaving the LSU game late because of cramps.
— There were several NFL scouts in attendance. The Titans, Bears, and Patriots were at practice.
— Bacarri Rambo continues to work with the defensive backs.
— Mohammad Massaquoi was at practice today just out of sight on the defensive side.
— Divaad Wilson continues to get work with the defensive backs. I think he will ultimately redshirt this season, but he will play in his four games that he is allowed.
