Tim Kimbrough will look to build upon the most extensive game action he’s seen this year.
Against Alabama in last Saturday’s 38-10 loss, Kimbrough totaled a team-high 13 tackles. A lot of that had to do with Kimbrough being one of Georgia’s better run-stopping inside linebackers, and the fact that the Crimson Tide are a run-first team.
Despite the fact the defense had its issues in various spots, Kimbrough had one of the better games on that side of the ball..
“I feel confident but I’m just going to try to keep doing it,” Kimbrough said.
Kimbrough began Georgia’s preseason as a starting inside linebacker before injuring his meniscus. As its healed, Kimbrough has been able to work back into the gameplan.
“I’m getting better every day,” Kimbrough said. “ It’s still a process. I still have to keep icing it.”
When the season started, he primarily came off the bench. He earned his first start of the season against Alabama and will likely play another large role against Tennessee, giving the Volunteers’ propensity at running the football.
Like his teammates, Kimbrough said it was tough to come off of Saturday’s loss. But all he can do, he said, is turn his attention to the next game at hand.
“It was a tough loss but we’re going to keep playing and go through the season, finish through,” Kimbrough said. “That’s all we can do.”
