Nolan Smith “doubtful” for the Tennessee game with a pectoral injury

Nolan Smith “doubtful” for the Tennessee game with a pectoral injury

Georgia coach Kirby Smart had a lengthy injury report when he addressed reporters on Monday.

Most pressing was the status of edge rusher Nolan Smith. The senior left Saturday’s game in the first quarter with a shoulder injury. Smart clarified Smith’s injury status

“It doesn’t look good for his availability this week. It’s a pectoral injury,” Smart said of Smith. “Probably doubtful for this week.”

The same goes for AD Mitchell, who has played just four times since injuring his ankle in Week 2 against Samford. Georgia is hoping to have him, but it will depend on how Mitchell improves during the week. He traveled to Jacksonville but did not dress.

“We have AD more recovery time this week,” Smart said. “We haven’t practiced yet, so it’s hard to say.”

Georgia’s offensive line took a number of hits against Florida. Amarius Mims is dealing with a knee injury, while Xavier Truss was limited to special teams duties with a toe injury. Smart revealed Saturday that right tackle Warren McClendon was also dealing with a shoulder injury.

Georgia running back Kendall Milton dressed Saturday but did not play in the win. He’s dealing with a quad injury in Kenny McIntosh and Daijun Edwards, both of whom had season-highs in the win over Florida with two touchdowns apiece.

The Bulldogs received some good news on Saturday with the return of defensive tackle Jalen Carter. He missed two games with a knee injury, but returned to help in pressure packages against the Gators. He played a total of 20 snaps.

“He played better than I expected. He was on the run, he was on the pass,” Smart said of Carter. “He kept the point. It’s really about stamina and him being able to hold on and conditioning.”

Given Tennessee’s potent offense, his return is a welcome one for Georgia’s defense.

The Georgia vs. Tennessee game is scheduled for 3:30 pm ET, with CBS televising the game.
