Georgia practice update: Nick Chubb returns, but two defensive players missing


ATHENS — Earlier on Monday, Georgia linebacker Reggie Carter walked up to the media for a standard interview session. A reporter began by asking a standard warm-up question about whether he and the team had moved on from the Tennessee game.

Carter paused a moment.

“Hold on, I’ll be right back,” he said, and turned and walked away, back towards an elevator.

He never did come back. A sports communications official reported that Carter was sick. Not sick about the way the Tennessee game ended, but literally sick.

So it was little surprise that Carter was not at practice, at least during the media viewing period. He wasn’t the only one.

Defensive lineman John Atkins, a starter, was also not seen during the viewing period. Atkins does not have any previously known injury.

But Georgia did have good news with a couple other notable players.

Tailback Nick Chubb was not only practicing but was in a regular non-contact jersey. Kirby Smart said earlier in the day that Chubb, who was limited to just one carry against Tennessee because of a sprained ankle was good to go this week.

And defensive lineman David Marshall who missed the Tennessee game with a concussion, was practicing, albeit in a black non-contact jersey.

The post Georgia practice update: Nick Chubb returns, but two defensive players missing appeared first on DawgNation.
