BATON ROUGE, La. — Dawgs247 has obtained a copy of Georgia’s travel roster where it is now confirmed that a trio of Bulldog defensive linemen will be out for Saturday’s game. David Marshall, Devonte Wyatt, and DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle didn’t make even make the trip for the game.
Kirby Smart didn’t seem very optimistic that Marshall or Hawkins-Muckle would play in the game when he spoke with reporters earlier in the week. Marshall suffered a foot injury against Vanderbilt and didn’t practice this week. Hawkins-Muckle has an undisclosed ailment and was also out.
Smart made it seem like Wyatt had a chance to return after sitting last week, but it seemed doubtful while watching him during the media-viewing periods of two practices this week. Wyatt was significantly hobbled by a lower-body injury while working on the side.
With those three out and Ben Cleveland not making the trip with a fractured fibula, it opened the door for a few players to make their first trip to a conference road game. The most notable of the group is 6-foot-6, 325-pound freshman Jordan Davis, who’ll help provide depth on the defensive line. He has seen meaningful minutes the past two weeks.
Freshman offensive lineman Owen Condon, who played in his first game as a Bulldog last week versus Vanderbilt, is also on the list along with graduate transfer punter Landon Stratton. Senior tight end Jackson Harris, who battled a foot injury for the first few games of the season, is also on the travel roster, giving the Bulldogs four tight ends to work with against LSU.
The Bulldogs and Tigers are set to kickoff at 3:30 p.m. ET and the game will be televised by CBS as the SEC’s Game of the Week. The full travel roster, broken down by position, can be found below.
