ATHENS -- As head coach Mark Richt said in mid-July, Georgia will open preseason practice on Tuesday at a health of nearly 100 percent.
Speaking to reporters before practice, Richt said everyone will be able to participate when the first session begins at around 3:30 p.m.
"I can't think of anybody right now that cannot participate," Richt said. "There may be a couple. We just have to watch the volume of their reps just to make sure we don't go too hard, too fast. Everybody has the green light to practice. There may be an exception. I just can't think of one.That's good. A lot of things have to go well for you in the offseason, so to speak, to get you ready for this day."
Richt mentioned specifically that receiver Justin Scott-Wesley, who had his knee scoped this summer, is good to go. Sony Michel and Keith Marshall are both expected to be able to practice as well.
"I say it all the time but we do have 29 practice opportunities and multiple meeting opportunities to get mentally and physically prepared for the season and for the first time," Richt said. "So all I can say is I think the players did a phenomenal job this summer."
