The Georgia Bulldogs are coming off a crucial SEC win and are looking to build on their success from last week to more success this week against Vanderbilt.

The Bulldogs have had a shortened week of practice but yesterday’s practice marked the final practice this week that would be open to the media and these are my three takeaways from this session.

3. Sanders in a Black Non-Contact Jersey
This could point to just a minor injury that is ailing Sanders, but anytime there are non-contact jerseys in use this late in the week, it is concerning. There have not been any reports of Sanders not being able to go this Saturday in Sanford, but this is definitely a situation that should be monitored as kickoff draws closer and closer.
2. Ledbetter looks Locked and Loaded
This should come as no surprise but Jonathan Ledbetter looks hungry at practice and seems to be giving his all at each and every one. With this being his first game back after his 6-game suspension, it will be interesting to see just how disruptive of a force Ledbetter can be for the Bulldogs.
1. Eason looking Sharp
After a game where his struggles were at an all-time high, the fact that Eason is looking sharp in practice is very encouraging for this Bulldogs team and their coaching staff. Although Vanderbilt’s defense struggles against the run, even more so than South Carolina, The Bulldogs need to get their passing attack back in form if they want to continue their winning streak.
I believe the Bulldogs looked great in practice yesterday and these three players could have a big impact in the team’s game against Vanderbilt. If they do, then the Bulldogs should have easy sledding going into their bye week before their crucial game against the Florida Gators.
