When asked about the depleted corps of UGA running backs after last Saturday’s scrimmage, Smart mentioned Tae Crowder, Shaquery Wison, Nick Moore and Brendan Douglas. Only one of the four has played a snap as a running back at Georgia, one is primarily a wide receiver, another is a former linebacker converted to fullback then added as an emergency running back and the other redshirted in 2015.
 
 
Moore is now sidelined with an MCL injury. It will be interesting to see how Smart populates the position for G-Day.
 
 
Here are Kirby’s post-practice remarks on the running backs:
