UGA Football Preseason: Chris Burnette Absent From Sunday's Practice

Georgia practiced Sunday without right guard Chris Burnette who was absent from practice because he was sick according to offensive line coach Will Friend.

While it was good news that Burnette wasn't injured it gave the Bulldogs the opportunity to get a look at Watts Dantzler at right guard and alongside John Theus at tackle. Those two along with Burnette, Kenarious Gates, David Andrews and Dallas Lee have separated themselves from the rest of the offensive line. Dantzler and Theus are battling at tackle to see who is start but its also possible that either Dantzler or Gates could move to guard in place of Lee to make room for Theus.

The Bulldogs want to decide on an alignment soon so that they group can start working together to become accustomed to each other and their responsibilities.
