ATHENS - Georgia got one potentially key player back at practice, while several other injuries continue to linger.
Cornerback Shattle Fenteng, the junior college transfer, was back in pads after sitting out the previous two days with an upper body injury. Fenteng was in a green non-contact jersey, but participating in drills during the media viewing period.
Still sitting out was inside linebacker Ramik Wilson, dealing with what sources say is a concussion. This marks four straight practices missed for the All-SEC player.
Fellow inside linebacker Ryne Rankin, a sophomore, also sat out a second straight practice with an undisclosed injury.
The tight end position was a bit thin on Thursday, especially at the top: Starter Jay Rome and top backup Jordan Davis were both missing from position drills early in the media viewing period.
Rome was at practice, and in pads. He was wielding a sledgehammer in a sandpit on the side under the watchful eye of Joe Tereshinski, the strength and conditioning coordinator. Rome is returning from foot surgery after last season, and has said that he's still not quite 100 percent.
Davis, the redshirt freshman, was missing altogether from the practice field for a second straight day.
Head coach Mark Richt said Wednesday that he will no longer provide injury updates to the media. But he make a point of making up with a media member whom Richt had scolded a day earlier for taking a photo after the media-allotted period. (At least Richt thought he had taken the photo.) Richt came over to the reporter and had a photo taken together.
