Georgia practice report: Offensive line and other updates

ATHENS — Nothing has been announced yet, but freshman Andrew Thomas looks to still be on the verge of a starting spot in Georgia’s opener.

Thomas was once again the first-team right tackle at Monday’s practice. The rest of the line was also as it’s basically been for the past two weeks.

The first team during the media viewing period was LT Isaiah Wynn, LG Pat Allen, C Lamont Gaillard, RG Solomon Kindley, and then Thomas finishing out the line.

The second team was also similar to as it was most of last week: LT Isaiah Wilson, LG Dyshon Sims, C Sean Fogarty, RG Kendall Baker, RT Ben Cleveland.

Thomas and Cleveland have been in competition for the right tackle spot, the final one seemingly to be decided. Thomas has been ahead of Cleveland in the pecking order, at least when the media has been present. Sims, a senior who started twice last year, is regarded as the versatile sixth man. Baker, a redshirt junior, has also moved up in the coach’s eyes as a potential contributor.

Some other notes from Monday’s viewing period (which was only seven minutes long):

  • Freshman outside linebacker Robert Beal was back at practice, after missing several practice last week with an undisclosed injury.
  • Junior safety Rashad Roundtree was not seen at practice. Roundtree, a reserve, was absent last week with what head coach Kirby Smart said was an injury he should return from soon.
  • There was no first-team secondary shown during the period. For what it’s worth, it appeared sophomore J.R. Reed and freshman Deangelo Gibbs were with the safeties, during a drill in which the safeties and corners were split up. The nickel backs were not split up separate at that point.
