What We Know
We here at Dawgs Daily do not believe Dominick Blaylock will be a participant again on Saturday against South Carolina, though Kearis Jackson may see some reps at wide receiver for this first time this fall.
Darnell Washington and Tykee Smith will likely return to action next week after rehabbing broken bones in their feet. Arian Smith is expected to be a full go and has participated in practice most of the week after suffering a calf contusion against UAB.
Georgia's quarterbacks, despite injury, have been practicing all week and there has yet to be a decision made as to who will get the start and if JT Daniels will play. According to sources, he has made good progress with rehabbing an oblique injury. Though that is a portion of the body that can be very fickle, and the Georgia coaching staff could take extra precaution with it.
