Kirby Smart’s Bulldogs were dealing with a few injuries coming out of the Florida game and, He gave updates on them in his presser.

The four players that were of concern, coming out of the Florida game are as follows: Natrez Patrick, Dominick Sanders, Riley Ridley, and Daquan Hawkins-Muckle.
At this point of the season, many players are beat up and have the normal wear and tear that players have at this time.
The three players, who are dealing with normal wear and tear are Dominick Sanders, Natrez Patrick and Riley Ridley.
Each of these players should be ready to go for the Bulldogs very important game against Kentucky.
On the other hand, Daquan Hawkins-Muckle’s injury is a little more serious but not so serious that I have any doubts he will play this weekend.
Smart said in his presser that Hawkins-Muckle will be day-to-day going through this week and is dealing with an ankle sprain, which he got late in the fourth quarter of the Florida game.
The Bulldogs have an effective rotation on the defensive line so if the staff thinks sitting Hawkins-Muckle is better for his health and future, then it would not surprise me to see that.
However as of right now, I would think the Bulldogs will be able to count on Hawkins-Muckle taking part in the Kentucky game.
Also at the Bulldogs practice, there were no players, from what I saw, missing or in black non-contact jerseys but these four players will be ones to watch going into the Kentucky game.
