Running back Sony Michel appeared to be limited during Georgia's practice Tuesday.
Michel came out of Georgia's win over Notre Dame in the fourth quarter with what appeared to be an ankle injury. The NBC television broadcast caught trainers taping his ankle, with Michel not returning to the game.
While Michel was suited up in pads and a helmet at practice, he did not take a carry or a catch during individual drills.
Instead, Michel was assisting walk-ons by hitting his fellow running backs with the dummy pads to simulate contact. The significance of his injury remains to be seen.
Never miss a local story.
Head coach Kirby Smart said Michel's reps were limited in practice by design and that he is hopeful he will be able to play Saturday against Samford.
Against Notre Dame, Michel carried the ball 13 times for 73 yards and a touchdown.
