“It’s a little shaky, the depth right now,” coach Mark Richt said Tuesday. “We better keep recruiting, I can tell you that.”
Georgia won’t be able to add any new players in time for Saturday’s game.
Scott-Wesley, coming back from a sprained ankle, was on the side in a regular jersey during drills Tuesday in the portion of practice open to the media.
“He’s coming along but I don’t see him going,” Richt said.
Mitchell remains out after arthroscopic knee surgery.
Rumph has a pulled hamstring. He didn’t play against Clemson.
“He’s out,” Richt said. “He won’t play.”
“It’s not the Barnum & Bailey circus out there,” Mason said. “We’ve got guys that I trust and guys that have made several plays.”
“We just need a little bit more confidence,” Mason said. “That’s maybe my job to go pat some guys on the back and tell them to keep my head up and maybe keep my head up, too.”
The receivers available are getting more reps in practice than they usually would.
“It is what it is,” offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said. “The guys are going to have to suck it up. They did a nice job the first week and we’re going to call their number a few more times this week and they’ve got to respond and make plays.”
Bobo challenged the offense to step it up in the passing game in practice Tuesday after not having a good practice Monday. Freshman Isaiah McKenzie is in the plans as a receiver and Bobo said Davis looked good Tuesday.
“I thought we had a great practice today throwing and catching and that’s what it’s going to take Saturday,” Bobo said. “No matter who’s out there, you’ve got to trust what you see and cut it loose.”
