ATHENS – Georgia might play its spring game without arguably its most dynamic offensive player, tailback D’Andre Swift, who continues to deal with a groin injury.
Swift suited up for the team’s scrimmage Saturday at Sanford Stadium, but did not participate in full-contact parts. Coach Kirby Smart answered “not sure yet” when asked if Swift would play in G-Day next Saturday.
“He’s been practicing every day,” Smart said. “He goes out there, he does pass [protection], he does some routes, as much as he can do. He just hasn’t been doing full, live tackle.”
Swift is the Bulldogs’ leading returning rusher from 2017. As a freshman last season, he ran for 618 yards and 3 touchdowns as a backup for Nick Chubb and Sony Michel last season. He averaged 7.6 yards per carry while also catching 17 passes for 153 yards and another TD.
