Georgia held its second open practice of the week on Tuesday, with the media able to view nine minutes of practice. The open period was held in the indoor practice facility. Here are some observations from The Red & Black.
The open period began with quarterbacks Jake Fromm and Justin Fields each leading an offense in snaps at certain spots on the field and running through a specific play. Both worked on passing during the drills. Fromm and Fields then worked on a drill focused on footwork with the ball.
Wide receiver Tyler Simmons was back out at practice for the second consecutive day after returning to practice on Monday from a shoulder injury. He was working with the receivers during the open period. The wide receivers worked on a drill focused on catching a pass from the side as they ran down the field. Mecole Hardman, Jayson Stanley, Riley Ridley and Ahkil Crumpton were seen working during the drill.
The offensive line worked on blocks during the open period. Cade Mays and Solomon Kindley stood behind the offensive line during the drill watching the offensive line.
The tight ends worked on blocks as well against a scout team defense. Issac Nauta, Jackson Harris and Charlie Woerner participated in the drill.
The defensive backs worked on a drill focused on hand placement, hitting the shoulder pads of their opponent with their hands. They worked in pairs on this drill, moving laterally and only hitting the shoulder pads. Tyson Campbell and Divaad Wilson, Mark Webb and Eric Stokes, and Ameer Speed and Deandre Baker were paired off working on the drill.
Otis Reese, Richard LeCounte and J.R. Reed worked separately from the other defensive backs on long passes. They ran down the field to catch a thrown pass.
