ATHENS - For the first time all season, UGA Football had every player available on offense. That excludes Branson Robinson, but his injury ended his season before it started.

Kirby Smart and Mike Bobo finally had a full arsenal on offense, and that equated to Georgia exploding for 52 points against Ole Miss on Saturday. 

Brock Bowers’ return to the playing field was fast. He played, and scored a touchdown, less than four weeks after having a tightrope ankle procedure done to repair the ankle he injured against Vanderbilt. 

“We’re healthier, so health gives you the ability to have depth and play more guys,” Smart said. 

That depth was bolstered with Amarius Mims returning to action for the first time since the South Carolina game on Sep. 16. It took him a little bit longer, but he had to recover from a similar injury/procedure to Bowers. Georgia rotated 7-8 players on the offensive line with Mims back on the field at right tackle. 

Georgia did have a player that is heavy in the rotation suffer an injury against the Rebels, so, what are the latest updates from Smart?

Brock Bowers

According to Pro Football Focus, Bowers played 45 snaps against. He scored a touchdown on one of those. He ended the game with three catches. 

It was obvious Bowers was not 100%. He was walking around on the sideline with what looked like at least a slight bit of discomfort. 

“He didn’t play every snap of any game anyways, "Smart said. “He’s in good shape. He’s conditioned. I don’t know that he’s 100%, but he’s healthy and safe enough to play.”

Julian Humphrey

Smart was extremely vague when talking about Humphrey’s injury. It is some sort of upper body injury that he suffered in the first quarter on Saturday against Ole Miss. It seems that Humphrey is going to miss time. 

“I don't know how long it’s going to be,” Smart said. “There’s a chance. You never know. He’s dinged up. I’m hoping we can get him back as soon as possible.”

Humphrey had been rotating in with Daylen Everette for the second cornerback spot all season, and this was one of the key position battles during the offseason. 

Jamon Dumas-Johnson

Smart made  another extremely vague comment, but here it is:

“Week-to-week, trying to get him back,” Smart said.

Dumas-Johnson broke his arm against Missouri last Saturday, and there is no clear timetable for his return. Smart said the week prior that they are going to try to find innovative ways to get him back out onto the field. 

Freshman CJ Allen got most of the work at Dumas-Johnson’s spot in his absence, with fellow freshman Raylen Allen playing many important snaps as well.
