Ahead of Georgia’s matchup against Alabama Saturday in the SEC Championship game, coach Kirby Smart provided an injury update on two of his offensive linemen during Monday’s press conference.

Smart said Hill, who left Georgia’s game against Georgia Tech Saturday due to injury, is available to practice this week.

“Trey is good to go,” Smart said. “He was out and about yesterday moving around, so I expect Trey to be fine.”

Smart said Monday there is no significant change to report regarding Ben Cleveland. Cleveland has struggled with a fibula injury this season.

“Ben's in the same boat he's been in. ... Ben's fighting to get back,” Smart said. “We think Ben's not 100 percent, but he's closer to 100 percent than he was yesterday. So we keep trying to get him back and doing all we can to get him back.”

Smart also said there was no change to the status of offensive tackle Cade Mays or inside linebacker Monty Rice.
