ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Left tackle Andrew Thomas has been held out of practice for No. 3 Georgia after leaving last week’s win over South Carolina with a left ankle sprain.

Coach Kirby Smart said before Tuesday’s practice Thomas has not been ruled out of Saturday’s game against Middle Tennessee State. Thomas also was held out on Monday.

The injury threatens a streak of 17 consecutive starts by Thomas, who is only a sophomore but is regarded as perhaps the Bulldogs’ top offensive lineman. He started all 15 games as a true freshman last season.

Thomas was hurt in the third quarter of the 41-17 win over South Carolina. Freshman Cade Mays replaced Thomas and helped the Bulldogs outscore the Gamecocks 21-0 in the quarter to put the game out of reach.
