Georgia Football Day 14 Practice Report: Running Back injury and Tight End Returns to Practice

Zamir White (3)
Georgia worked through its second scrimmage of fall camp Saturday afternoon. The team practiced in Sanford Stadium in front of a numerous amount of boosters. Saturday marked day 14 of Georgia’s fall camp and I break down what I saw during the media’s seven-minute viewing period of scrimmage two.


One of the first things I noticed was that Eric Stokes was with the two’s today. Deangelo Gibbs ran with the ones today in some of the drills. I’m not sure if this is just an experiment or what but that is what i noted.
As the media was walking out of the viewing period I noticed JR Reed snag one away from a wideout for the pick. Not sure who the QB was but i saw the pick as he caught it. Like i said we were being ushered out as our viewing period was over.

D’Andre Walker is massive, I cannot wait to see what he puts on the field this year. Quay Walker showed a lot of promise today as well. He’s looking more and more comfortable each day. Malik Herring took some reps with this group again. This has been multiple days in a row that the sophomore worked out with the linebackers.


Coach James Coley had the quarterbacks run some fundamentals drills with footwork and movement in the pocket again. Both of them made good throws and didn’t have anybody drop a pass. Georgia’s got to be one of the luckiest teams in the country to have two quarterbacks this good on one roster.
Running Backs:

D'Andre Swift (7)

James Cook continues to impress. He’s got great hands and is really fast. Holyfield continues to shine as well. I’ll give him some credit here, he’s looking a lot more agile and quick as camp continues on.
Swift well he’s Swift and looks stronger than ever. That hamstring that bothered him in the spring doesn’t seem to be affecting him anymore and he looks strong so strong.
Wide Receivers: 
Jeremiah Holloman (9)

Demetris Robertson looks like he’s handling the heat better. Matt Landers caught a nice pass over the middle from Fromm. He continues to show flashes of greatness. Landers is one to keep an eye out for. JJ Holloman continues making good catches and being smart with his routes.
The entire group seemed to have glue in their gloves because I didn’t see one guy drop a pass. Ahkil Crumpton excites me and is another that show flashes of greatness.
Offensive Line:
Coach Sam Pittman’s keeping this group separated. He keeps pushing fundamentals and more fundamentals. They stayed in guard and tackle groups working on various blocking drills.
Pittman yelled at Justin Shaffer, “Do what I ask of you the first time.” He told Shaffer this after the young lineman messed up during a blocking drill.
Then one of the assistant coaches told Shaffer, “You look consistently better at not looking like you’re dropping.” So Shaffer was getting quite a bit of attention and work on things.

Injury Update

The injury bug bit Georgia again on Saturday as true-freshman Zamir White reportedly tore his ACL on his left knee. White previously tore his right ACL last football season and rehabbed all spring long. He recently got the full go-ahead to practice just in time for fall camp. White suffered a non-contact injury to the left knee during a punt return.
Luke Ford was back at practice. After his minor motorcycle injury on Thursday, it wasn’t known how long he’d be absent from camp.
Jackson Harris was absent again with an apparent foot injury. While waiting on Kirby Smarts press conference, I saw him ride by the door on a scooter with an air cast.
Terry Godwin was back and practicing.
Kearis Jackson and Nate McBride returned to practice
Robert Beal is still not at practice. Smart said he had an undisclosed injury.
