Fenteng Returns to Practice

ATHENS - Shattle Fenteng is back in pads following a few days off from practice.

Fenteng returns to practice

There was good news on the injury front Thursday with cornerback newcomer Shattle Fenteng taking part in the full pads practice in a non-contact jersey after being out for a few days.

Swann is still expecting the 6-foot-2, 187-pound Fenting to contribute at cornerback.

“When you get a J.C. guy you don’t expect him to come in and not help,” Swann said. “With his size, with his ability, he’s going to be a very good player and he’s going to be great for us on the back end.”

Georgia hasn’t disclosed the nature of injuries since preseason practices started but Fenteng appeared to have an arm/shoulder issue. Coach Mark Richt said on Wednesday he would not be providing details on specific injuries, but the indication a day later is he may still be willing to give at least some information.

Outside linebacker Leonard Floyd also practiced after shedding the green non-contact jersey.

The tight end group was thin during the opening viewing periods for the media. Jay Rome, coming off foot surgery, was on a stationary bike. Jordan Davis wasn’t spotted.

Receiver Chris Conley and Justin-Scott Wesley (knee) practiced in a non-contact jersey.Inside linebacker Ryne Rankin also didn’t practice.

This and that

Outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins said freshman outside linebacker Lorenzo Carter mixed it up with junior offensive tackle John Theus in practice this week after a shove by Theus at the end of the play. “Him and Theus got into a little bout the other day. We broke it up before things got a little too hectic. I got a feeling he’s going to get into it with somebody again real soon.” …How does a player get through eight straight days of practices so far? “If you don’t get in that cold tub, I don’t know how you’re going to make it,” Jenkins said of his 10 to 15 minutes after each practice. Georgia practiced under the hottest conditions so far this preseason Thursday afternoon with the temperature at 96 degrees early in the workout. ...Jenkins said Davis who has played both safety and cornerback under Pruitt, has looked like a scholarship player and has earned the right to be awarded one. “He’s working hard,” Jenkins said. “It’s up to big daddy Richt."
