G-Day injuries and details

Georgia head coach Mark Richt said “at least 10” players were likely out with injuries for Saturday’s spring game. Most prominent is tailback Washaun Ealey (hamstring), who has missed most of the past few weeks.

Cornerback Brandon Boykin, a captain who helped draft the teams, is also “iffy” with a concussion, according to Richt.

The other players expected to be out include cornerback Jordan Love (hamstring), Garrison Smith (strained neck), and cornerback-safety Sanders Commings (concussion). Safety Bacarri Rambo was ruled out a couple weeks ago with a sprained knee.

As for the game itself, it will include four 12-minute quarters, with “pretty close” to a normal game clock, Richt said. There will be no kickoffs or punts: kickoffs will be automatically spotted at the 25 and punts will be 35 yards. They will kick field goals and extra points, but there will be no rushing the kicker.

Richt also wants the coaches to limit their play-calling to only blitzes and plays that were shown last year.

“I don’t want our coaches to show anything new that might give Boise State or South Carolina a hint,” Richt said. “If it’s a blitz they ran all last year I don’t care if we run it. If it’s an offensive play we ran all last year. If it’s something that they can get off of our game film. … I’m not excited about showing anything new.”

Also, Alec Ogletree, who had previously been announced as being on the Black team, has been flipped to the red team.

Officially Richt said that happened because of injuries. But if you looked at the rosters - picked by the four player captains - you knew the Black team was stacked at inside linebacker: Ogletree, Richard Samuel, Mike Gilliard and Brandon Burrows.

So now Ogletree moves to the Red team, where he will be teamed with fellow starter Christian Robinson.
