Notes From Georgia's First Scrimmage; Kirby Smart Comments


On Saturday, the Georgia Bulldogs teed it up in Sanford Stadium in what was the team’s first scrimmage of fall camp. The media was allowed an eight minute viewing period.

Some notes and observations reported from the Georgia media are as follows:

  • Demetris Robertson, who was recently ruled eligible to play at Georgia this season, was working with the third group of outside receivers.
  • Senior inside linebacker Natrez Patrick appeared to have positioned himself as a leader on the defense, taking point on linebacker drills. (As noticed by Dawgnation’s Mike Griffith).
  • Junior wide receiver Riley Ridley, coming off a strong outing in the 2018 National Championship, recorded the first catch of the scrimmage.
  • Mark Webb, who switched to the defensive side of the ball last year from receiver, was back at practice after missing on Thursday.
  • Wide receiver Terry Godwin, who is nursing a knee injury, was not dressed at practice.
  • Freshman receiver Kearis Jackson and freshman defensive back Divaad Wilson were fully dressed but not able to practice. The two were working on the side.
  • Sophomore inside linebacker Nate McBride was not practicing, but was dressed and working on the stationary bike during the media viewing period.
  • The running backs were going against each other in one-on-ones working on blocking drills.
  • The Red&Black.com observed as the offensive line ran double team drills.
  • Jonathan Ledbetter, Tyler Clark and Julian Rochester took the lead on defensive line drills.
  • Redshirt freshman defensive back Eric Stokes was working with the first team, but would later deal with cramps.
  • Junior defensive back Tyrique McGhee suffered a foot injury that Kirby Smart did not consider a big issue.

After the scrimmage, Smart made some comments to the media.
