Practice report: Still no sign of Georgia tackle Isaiah Wynn

ATHENS — It has been four days and still no sign of Isaiah Wynn.

Georgia’s starting left tackle was absent at the Bulldogs’ practice again on Thursday. Earlier this week, coach Kirby Smart said the senior was out with an undisclosed “illness.”

With the starter out, senior Dyshon Sims was taking turns at left tackle during drill work that took place during a 12-minute media observation period. Also getting snaps there were junior D’Marcus Hayes and junior Kendall Baker.

It was the status quo elsewhere in the offensive line.

Other observations from Thursday’s practice:

  • Sophomore defensive tackle Michail Carter, who had also been out since last week with an undisclosed “illness,” was back at full speed and without limitations with the rest of the defensive linemen.
  • Freshman wide receiver Jeremiah “J.J.” Holloman was running on the side under the supervision of sports medicine chief Ron Courson. Holloman has been out since Saturday with a hamstring injury.
  • Receivers coach James Coley was getting onto his charges pretty hard after witnessing too many drops during pass-skeleton work.
  • The Bulldogs were practicing in full pads again. It was an extremely hot and humid day. Georgia’s workout began about an hour earlier than it has been getting started.
  • Observing practice was Floyd McClendon , a former U.S. Navy SEAL and chief special warfare officer who works as a motivational speaker, according to his LinkedIn profile. The Bulldogs annually have had Navy SEALS come in and speak to the players and consult the team on training and motivation methods.
  • Smart will be available for a briefing following Thursday’s practice.
