Defensive back Kennar Daniels-Johnson, who has been absent from practices for some time, may have played his last game for the Bulldogs. “I don’t know if we’ll see him play this year,” Richt said of the senior from Miami.

He signed in 2013 under then defensive coordinator Todd Grantham and secondary coach Scott Lakatos.
Richt said “it was nice not to have to travel today to practice” after the team traveled to Flowery Branch to use the Falcons’ facility on Wednesday due to storms in Athens. Richt said he chatted briefly with Falcons head coach Dan Quinn and some of his assistants. “It was worth the trip,” Richt said. “I don’t want to continue to make the trip if we can help it.”
