Fall Practice Report - August 21

Athens --- The Georgia Bulldogs practiced for more than two-and-a-half hours on Tuesday afternoon, a grueling session that concluded with an enthusiastic goal-line scrimmage followed by conditioning drills.

"It was a good, spirited practice," head coach Mark Richt said. "We were in full pads and they're still out there doing agilities. It's sort of a grind-it-out day."

Richt was pleased with his team's effort, particularly on the defensive side.

"They came ready to work, especially the defense," Richt said. "They did a much better job of flying to the ball and gang tackling. They just hadn't been doing that in scrimmages or in their individual work. The defense came to play more than the offense did today."

Following practice, Richt released an updated depth chart for the first time this fall. A day after naming David Greene the No. 1 quarterback, the complete depth chart included few surprises. Co-No. 2 quarterback D.J. Shockley and No. 2 defensive tackle Gerald Anderson were the only true freshmen included. No back-up was listed at center; however, Richt said injured true freshman Russ Tanner could earn that slot.

"We're thin on the defensive line, which we've been saying all fall," Richt said. "We need some healthy bodies at center."

Georgia opens the season a week from this Saturday, on Sept. 1 against Arkansas State at Sanford Stadium. Kickoff for the opener is slated for 1:00 p.m.
