Smart provides injury update on offensive linemen

Georgia coach Kirby Smart updated the health of his offensive linemen including Kendall Baker and Ben Cleveland on Monday.

Baker limped off the field Friday with a leg injury and was replaced by Cleveland, who has suffered with an injury to his left fibula this season.

“Ben played in the game the other night when Kendall came out, so Ben was able to get in the game (and) play,” Smart said. “He feels better each and every day. We feel like he's a really good shield protector, and with our coverage unit he hasn't had to cover a lot, so that's one of the safer things he's been able to do for us.”

Smart said Baker and tackle Cade Mays are listed as day-to-day and he wasn’t sure when they would be back at practice.

Smart also said linebacker David Marshall and defensive tackle DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle will not be available to practice this week.

Georgia faces UMass Saturday at Sanford Stadium. Kick off is at 4 p.m. on the SEC Network.
