Cornerback Kevin Toliver didn't play against Alabama, and now it's clear why.
During Tuesday's rainy practice outdoors, Toliver donned a gold jersey, reserved for players nursing injuries and signifying a limited role during drills. Also, sophomore Maea Teuhema participated with the starting offensive line at right tackle.
Toliver, a starting cornerback for much of this season and last season, did not play against the Crimson Tide, and it was unclear why. Toliver did not travel to Auburn earlier this year because of an injury, and he did not play in the first half of the win over Southern Miss because of a suspension.
He now appears to be nursing another undisclosed injury, sending Tre'Davious White from his nickel spot to wide cornerback and putting Dwayne Thomas at nickel.
Teuhema did not finish the game against Alabama after playing both right and left tackle during the 10-0 loss. Toby Weathersby, at right tackle, and K.J. Malone, at left tackle, finished the game. Teuhema started for an injured Weathersby at right tackle, but coaches replaced him with Weathersby in the second quarter. Teuhema replaced Malone for a few series after Malone injured his shoulder. He returned to the game, though.
- He's back: Suspended freshman offense lineman Donavaughn Campbell practiced Tuesday. Campbell was arrested over the bye week and charged with two counts of battery, both misdemeanors, for a fight outside of a Georgia Tech fraternity house. Campbell's brother is a defensive back at Georgia Tech. His status with the team is unclear, but he participated in drills Tuesday.
- Gold: Toliver wasn't the only one donning a gold jersey Tuesday. Malone, still hampered by a right shoulder injury that flared up in the first half against Alabama, wore a gold jersey. FB J.D. Moore also donned a gold jersey. Moore injured his neck against Ole Miss. He played in the loss to Alabama.
