Friday Fast Five: Rapid Updates

ATHENS - Dawg Post takes a look at the top five areas of interest from Georgia's eighth day of camp.

(One) Inside linebacker Ramik Wilson did not participate in practice on Friday. Georgia resumed its fall camp schedule this morning with its first of two practices on the day. Wilson was not one of those who ran through drills.

(Two) Tight end Jay Rome was back on the field and away from the stationary bike – and the axe. Rome was present for, and participated in the pass and catch drills I watched on Friday. Outside one dropped pass, he looked to be moving around fine. There was no clear sign of pain that I noticed. The 6-foot-6, 248-pound junior from Valdosta is on the mend from a right foot injury as you may know, but looks to be making a fair amount of progress as fall camp goes on.

(Three) Cornerback Shattle Fenteng was in a green, non-contact jersey again today, but did practice. Fenteng seems to be making some progress as well due to the fact he’s staying on the field. Wide receivers Chris Conley and Justin Scott-Wesley also practiced in green jerseys, but the two of them haven’t shown any signs of ailment during the preseason. Scott-Wesley’s knee held him back a bit the first two days, but he’s had time to get more comfortable since then.

(Four) Jeb Blazevich is a great looking tight end. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound freshman out of Charlotte could play a pivotal role in Georgia’s offense as early as the Clemson game. Blazevich has all the physical tools, but he obviously has things to learn as far as ‘college’ football goes. He hasn’t even had a chance to experience college yet. Blazevich looked in sync with his quarterbacks today during QB/TE drills.

(Five) Tailback Keith Marshall looked good, too. Much like Scott-Wesley, Marshall is on the mend from a knee injury. He hasn’t looked too limited, though. There were no plans of that to start camp. The running backs are shaping up. Georgia’s got a lot of them at this point in time. It’s going to be interesting to see how true freshmen Nick Chubb and Sony Michel progress. No one’s forgetting about Todd Gurley, either.
