By Tim Deveney |Posted Apr 15, 2019 11:21:30Georgia defensive end Ryan Anderson and running back Deontay Wilder are among Georgia’s returning starters.
The Bulldogs also have defensive tackle John Jenkins, defensive end Isaiah Pead and receiver Nick Harper returning to the offense.
But they have another star in receiver Tyrell Williams, who has caught all 15 passes he has thrown in each of the past two games.
He’s been the only receiver on the depth chart all season long.
Williams, who had 12 catches for 170 yards in last year’s game against the Texas A&M Aggies, has also become a bigger part of the offense since returning from an ankle injury.
Georgia has allowed three rushing touchdowns in its last three games.
Williams said he’s trying to stay healthy and be the best receiver he can be, even though he hasn’t been able to play in all of the three games since suffering the injury.
He said he will play the rest of the season.
“It’s tough because you’re not just playing a role in the offense and trying to make plays for your teammates,” Williams said.
“You’re trying to help the team.
But that’s what I’ve been doing.”
Williams was one of four players to record double-digit catches against the Aggies last season.
He had 19 catches for 237 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-13 win.
That was the Bulldogs’ only win in the last two games of the regular season.
Georgia had four players in double figures last season: Williams, running back Rashad Greene, receiver Deontae Wilder and defensive tackle Ryan Anderson.
Williams had 11 catches for 162 yards and a touchdown against Texas A &M.
That came on a season-high 15 targets.
