Georgia football practice notes: Reggie Davis will play and injuries aren't serious

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Practice has been underway for about a week in Athens.  They've only this week strapped on the pads, so not much of note has happened as of yet.  There has been a few injuries, particularly on the defensive side of the ball.  But none are expected to linger long and impact the season opener in Clemson that is now little more than 3 weeks away.  3 members of the defensive front 7 have had surgery on their hands, but being that DL and LB isn't a spot that needs to have soft hands to catch things (like a RB or WR), they can just wrap it up in a club cast and get back to work once they've had a bit of rest.

The main news has been some of the new guys showing the promise to make an impact.  Seth Emerson brings us news about Toby Johnson impressing and working his way into the rotation after recovering fully from a knee injury at JUCO last year.  Near the end, he also adds the tidbit about Shaq Fluker working with the first team D at SS, so we may well have our starting pair of safeties with Josh Harvey Clemons suspended for the opener and Tray Matthews seemingly having locked up the FS spot this spring.

At WR, two new faces are impressing. 6'5 JUCO Jonathon Rumph, who's from a town just outside Columbia, SC, is apparently much more comfortable after getting acclimated this spring, and is showing off his size and skills which brings an additional element that the other WRs lack.  And speedster Reggie Davis, a freshman from Tallahassee that excelled in the extremely competitive tracks of Florida high schools, has worked his way into playing time with an impressive fall camp.  Expected to redshirt by some, he brings a deep threat that Georgia lost from last year's roster when Tavarres King (now with the Denver Broncos) graduated.  It seems doubtful that he can fill the shoes King left behind, but with Malcolm Mitchell being as injury prone as he's shown to be over the last two years, it seems we have a solid deputy able to step in if the junior from Valdosta known as Tampa has to miss some time.
