Georgia's Hamilton might miss season
By Chris Low
Gentry Estes of Dawgs247.com is reporting that senior safety Jakar Hamilton is likely to miss the season with stress fractures in his right ankle.
Hamilton, who transferred to Georgia last year from junior college, has not practiced since the early part of preseason camp. He entered the preseason in a battle with junior Shawn Williams for one of the starting safety spots.
The Bulldogs were already pretty thin at safety. In fact, junior cornerback Sanders Commings had been working some at safety. Junior Bacarri Rambo is the starter at the other safety spot.
If Commings were to slide over to safety full time, that would mean junior Branden Smith would move to the top of the depth chart at cornerback opposite Brandon Boykin. Smith, one of the fastest players on Georgia's team, is also getting some work on offense in a couple of different spots.
