Fall Practice Notes - August 23

Practice Summary: Defense dominates while <b>Cory Phillips</b> only practices for 30 minutes due to back spasms.

ATHENS-----The University of Georgia defense dominated Thursday's 90-minute workout in shorts and shoulder pads.

"The defense came to play while the offense was perhaps just trying to get through the day," said Georgia head coach Mark Richt. "It was not a god day for the offense. It was hard to decipher between the (number) ones on offense and the twos, they all played like number threes today."

Richt added he was disappointed no one stepped up to lead the offense or was able to make a big play to change the momentum. Back spasms cut short junior quarterback Cory Phillips' day of practice by about 30 minutes.

Freshman D.J. Shockley, the co-number two at quarterback, took all the snaps with the second team when Phillips left for treatment.

Georgia opens the season Sept. 1 when it plays host to Arkansas State. Kickoff at Sanford Stadium will be at 1 p.m.
