Rundown: Team Heads Indoors

ATHENS - A rundown of news and notes following Georgia's practice on Tuesday.

The Lead:

Both Ray Drew and Keith Marshall missed practice Tuesday, coach Mark Richt confirmed in a release following practice.

Drew, who has spent time cross-training at defensive end this spring, was sick and is expected to return soon. Marshall, who is soaking in as much information as he can after enrolling early in January, has suffered a hamstring injury.

He had five rushes for 18 yards in the team's scrimmage Saturday.

Richt's Eye on the Sky:

"For about an hour and a half, we got some good work done outside," coach Mark Richt said. "But then there was some lightning in the area and we had to gather the team up and get them indoors. I was very pleased with what we were able to accomplish once we moved inside and I thought we got some good skill work done in (the indoor facility)."

Injury Update:

In a green, no-contact jersey: Rantavious Wooten (pulled leg muscle), Amarlo Herrera (stinger), Zach DeBell (ankle), Xzavier Ward (knee), Chris Conley (hand).

Linebacker Christian Robinson returned to practice full speed after missing Saturday's scrimmage.

Outside the lines:

Wide receiver Tavarres King brought his daughter to sit with him during interviews following practice. MacKenzie, who will turn four in June, sat quietly while eyeing reporters talking to her daddy.

Also, tight end Jay Rome came to interviews in a dress shirt and tie. He was dressed up for the basketball banquet, which was held Tuesday night.

Quote of the day:

"He's 280 pounds and he's grumpy." – Quarterback Hutson Mason talking about tight end Arthur Lynch's ability to block. (Note: Lynch has trimmed down since last offseason – when his weight pushed 280).
