Kirby Smart on OL Ben Cleveland: ‘Don’t know when we’re getting Ben back’ 

Georgia coach Kirby Smart is unsure when offensive lineman Ben Cleveland will return. 

“Ben (Cleveland) will still be out,” Smart said Monday. “I don’t know when we’re getting Ben back.”

Cleveland fractured his left fibula during the Missouri game in Week 4. The injury did not require surgery, however Cleveland has missed three weeks, including the 36-16 loss to LSU. 

“He’s doing more running, he’s been more active, and we’ll find out more during the week,” Smart said. “We don’t think he’ll be able to play the game (Saturday against Florida).”

However, running back D’Andre Swift will practice on Monday after missing practice due to an ankle injury. 

“Swift is fine,” Smart said. “He should be practicing today. He got a lot of rehab over the weekend.”

The Georgia-Florida game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday in Jacksonville.
