With No. 5 Georgia's season-opening showdown against No. 3 Clemson less than three weeks away, the hits keep coming for the Bulldogs. Dawgs247 reported Wednesday that tight end Darnell Washington and defensive back Tykee Smith are expected to be out "at least three weeks" due to foot injuries sustained in Tuesday's practice. That timeline would leave UGA without both players for the Clemson game on Sept. 4 as absences continue to mount in preseason practice for coach Kirby Smart's squad.

Washington is a breakout candidate at tight end for the Bulldogs after the 6-foot-7 behemoth showed in the spring game how his size poses mismatches.
