Kirby Smart Provides Update On Andrew Thomas Injury


When starting left tackle Andrew Thomas went down with an injury, Georgia fans everywhere held their breath.

Shortly after, news was released that it was just an ankle injury, and though not great, DawgNation was able to let out a sigh of relief.

After the game, Kirby Smart talked Thomas’ injury.

“We don’t know to what extent, how bad,” Smart said. “It’s an ankle sprain, so, I don’t know much right now other than that.”

On Monday, Smart updated the media on that status of Thomas, a sophomore who was named a first team all-American last season.

“Still an ankle sprain. He will be out today to rehab and do stuff on the treadmill. Hopefully he will be back for the game (on Saturday),” Kirby said.

Thomas, who has made 17 career starts at Georgia in just over one season, left the game on Saturday and did not return. Fortunately for the Dawg, in came 5-star offensive tackle Cade Mays, who did not miss a beat and helped Georgia coast to a 41-17 victory over South Carolina.

After the game, Kirby showed Mays some love.

“I thought when he first when in – when you watched a couple plays – he was really physical at the point of attack,” Kirby said.

“Cade’s a competitor and has been working at left tackle for awhile.”

Georgia takes on Middle Tennessee State this Saturday at 7:15 in Sanford Stadium. Kirby is hopeful to have Thomas back, but if he is not able to go, Mays will make his first career start for Georgia.

With Georgia paying a lesser opponent this weekend before resuming SEC play, it would not the worst if Thomas sat out to heal that injured ankle.
