Georgia comes out of a dominant win over Vanderbilt healthy for the most part as they move onto a Top-10 matchup at home against Arkansas. The Razorbacks are the number eight ranked team in the country after a win over a top-rated Texas A&M, making the Aggies their second former Southwest Conference opponent to be beaten by Arkansas.
Georgia hosts Arkansas inside Sanford Stadium for a noon kickoff, which is not the favorite kickoff time for Georgia fans after the 2019 loss to South Carolina, where the Dawgs played down to the level of their opponent and lost in overtime.
In the lead-up to last Saturday’s game, Kirby Smart told the media that the return of Darnell Washington and Tykee Smith was set for Vanderbilt or Arkansas. With both not participating in Georgia’s latest win over the Commodores, the expectation is that the Bulldogs will get back both players from foot injuries suffered during fall camp.
Kirby Smart confirmed as much Monday during his media availability. Both Washington and Smith will be back at practice this afternoon.
While Washington and Smith could be making their debut appearance in 2021, Georgia could be without another contributing wide receiver. Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint limped off the field Saturday in the second half with a foot injury. Sources later told SI Dawgs Daily’s Brooks Austin that the sophomore wideout was in a boot on Sunday after hurting his ankle on Saturday afternoon. Smart confirmed that injury as well during his press conference.
The sophomore receiver missed the last four games of the 2020 season after suffering a leg injury in the Florida game. So far, Rosemy-Jacksaint has seen starting reps at the X-receiver position, recording just three catches for 31 yards through the first four games.
