A sprained ankle that continues to keep the wide receiver from practicing clouds the situation.
The question posed to coach Mark Richt after Wednesday’s practice: When Scott-Wesley is healthy enough to go, will he play in the next game?
“When he’s ready to play, when I think he’s ready, that’s when he’ll play,” Richt said.
Asked if he’s served a suspension already and it’s a matter of him just being injured now, Richt said: “I’ll say this: when I think he deserves to play, I’ll let him play when he’s ready.”
Richt indicated it’s a coach’s discretion in cases like this.
“I always reserve the right to decide when a guy plays,” Richt said. Scott-Wesley had 16 catches for 311 yards and two touchdowns last season before sustaining a torn ACL against Tennessee.
Meanwhile, wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell spent Wednesday getting rehab work in a “tub” after three straight days of jogging on land, Richt said.
Mitchell is recovering after arthroscopic knee surgery July 31. Georgia's next game is Sept. 13 at South Carolina.
“He’ll get back on land (Thursday) and maybe try to just kind of run some routes without a ball being thrown at him and all that,” Richt said. “Get a taste of doing a little bit of that. We’ll just see how he progresses. I would just say he’s day-to-day right now.”
