Georgia’s wide receivers have performed very well despite being depleted at the group due to injuries.

Kirby Smart gave an update on a few of the injured receivers at his press conference on Tuesday.

On Arian Smith (shin):

“Yeah, we are hoping to get Arian (Smith) back. He’s been closer each week. It’s just a lower leg contusion that’s been bothering him when he plants and runs, but he is much closer this week, but he’s been on about a fifty percent pitch count. He’s been repping with the twos, he’s getting reps and I think he’s looked better this week than he has in the past. We hope that continues throughout the rest of the week.

On Jermaine Burton (groin):

“Jermaine (Burton) has been bothered by the groin, he’s fought through that. He’s not 100%.”

On Justin Robinson (hamstring):

“Justin Robinson’s got a little bit of a hamstring now so he’s banged up.”

On Dominick Blaylock (hamstring):

“Dom is still out. So I feel like we are better off than we were going into the Auburn game, but I don’t feel like we are near where we need to be in terms of wide receiver.”

On the group again:

“But I do think Arian will be back and Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint has done a great job this week and Jermaine has been out there practicing. Of those three alone, they are a huge boost.”
