Redshirt freshman safety Reshad Jones suffered a bone bruise in his knee during Saturday’s scrimmage. An MRI taken Monday morning revealed no structural damage, but it’s unclear when Jones will return.
Richt expects him back at least in time for the week of practice before the first game.
Safety Antavious Coates, who has missed the last two years due to knee injuries, was out due to swelling in his knee from the volume of work recently. He’s day-to-day.
Offensive lineman Josh Davis (shoulder), cornerback Thomas Flowers (shoulder), wide receivers Kris Durham (heat, concussion) and T.J. Gartrell, fullback Jason Johnson (heat) and defensive lineman Tripp Taylor (heat) all missed Monday.
And that’s just the new injuries.
Offensive linemen Chester Adams (ankle) and Scott Haverkamp (ankle) walked around the fields during practice without limping. Both players said they hope to be back any day. Offensive lineman Tanner Strickland (foot) rode a stationary bike. Chris Little still is limited due to a hand injurys and defensive lineman Ricardo Crawford missed his second day for heat-related reasons.
Wide receiver Mikey Henderson (hip) and tight end Tripp Chandler (rib) was still in a green, no-contact jersey, but defensive tackle Brandon Wood, whose injury was never disclosed, was back in participating full speed.
Cornerback Bryan Evans (hamstring) could be back next week.
