    Rigg went down during the third week of the season with what the school deemed a “rib injury” and never played another down.

    Riggs actually sustained three lacerations to his kidney and was deemed out for six to eight weeks, ending his season regular season. Although he had fully recovered and was able to practice with the team before the TaxSlayer Bowl, Rigg did not see any action. Kentucky will seek a medical redshirt to try to garner another year of eligibility for their young tight end.

    Time to Update the 85: After signing day, what is Georgia’s scholarship situation?

    Smart didn’t seem worried on Wednesday when asked about the team’s potential numbers crunch. The direct quote: “We’ll be fine with the 85.”

    And that was about an hour before it emerged that graduate transfer kicker David Marvin was on the way this fall, expecting to receive a scholarship. The media didn’t know about that yet, so Smart wasn’t asked, but no doubt he knew about that, and still felt “we’ll be fine with the 85.”

    That would be, for the uninitiated, the NCAA’s scholarship limit of 85. A reminder: Georgia doesn’t need to be at or under the limit until the summer begins and the new recruits enroll. What that means: There’s going to be attrition between now and then.

    Georgia is now probably committed to 89 scholarships for the 2017 season. It signed 26 players, and Marvin’s scholarship would make it 27.

    There’s obviously the Rodrigo Blankenship situation. If you were under the belief that eventually a scholarship would be found for Blankenship, then the Marvin news throws a giant wrench in that. Fullback Christian Payne is also a walk-on, and would have a good case for getting a scholarship. But only if there’s room.

    If the above numbers are right, then Georgia is four over the limit. How does it make room? Smart pointed out that “you’ve got guys who are graduates who may transfer.”

    Smart numbers will work out.  They always do.

    erek Mason confirmed that three players — including two former starters — are leaving the program.

    Mason told the Tennessean that linebacker Landon Stokes and tight ends Sean Dowling and DeAndre Woods are leaving the Commodores and plan on graduating.

    The report said the players suffered multiple injuries throughout their careers, but was unclear if they would be using their remaining eligibility at other schools or retiring from football.

    The numbers will work out for Mason...

    “Mitchell’s not with us anymore,” Smart said.

    Wasson originally committed to Alabama as a preferred walk-on, then flipped to Georgia after Smart arrived in Athens. He was expected to compete for the vacant place-kicking role, but William Ham won the job, and then Rodrigo Blankenship took over during the season.

    Ham has since left the team. Blankenship will compete with graduate transfer David Marvin...

  • Malzahn is acting like Kyle Davis is not yet back on campus on the SEC teleconference.

    Malzahn on Davis, who posted image on campus: "We expect him back with us fairly soon. That’s probably best way to answer that right now."
