Solomon Kindley reinjured his ankle against the Mississippi State Bulldogs so his status is still questionable for the Bulldogs upcoming game against the Tennessee Volunteers.
Solomon Kindley seemed to be moving fine throughout the Bulldogs practice period that was open to the media, but he still seems to be limited because of his placement in the rotation on drills. Kindley was taking reps with the third team as he continues to try to get healthy from that ankle injury and it will be interesting to see if he moves up in the rotation throughout the week and if he will be healthy enough to play.
The starting offensive line as of right now seems to be Isaiah Wynn at left tackle, Kendall Baker at left guard, Lamont Gaillard at center, Dyshon Sims at right guard, and Andrew Thomas at right tackle.
Another player who is trying to return from injury is quarterback Jacob Eason and I thought his movement was normal as well. I spotted Eason jogging and although he is still wearing a knee brace, he seems to be more comfortable with running and not favoring his knee anymore. In fact, some other media members mentioned they saw Eason taking first-team reps, so it will be interesting to see who takes the opening snap against the Volunteers.
The defensive line was getting a lot of compliments during the Bulldogs practice and Tray Scott and Kirby Smart were at the forefront of them. Coach Scott specifically gave Jonathan Ledbetter some compliments during their drill work, but he seemed to be pleased with every member of the defensive line. Also Kirby Smart complimented this group for “popping up like pop-tarts” so he had to be pleased with how quick their get-off was during drills.
This seems to be a strong opening practice for the Bulldogs as they prepare for a tough matchup against the Tennessee Volunteers in an even tougher environment on the road up in hostile Neyland Stadium.
