Though Branden Smith is a little banged-up at the moment, head coach Mark Richt & Co. expect him to play this Saturday against Boise State.
An electric player, Smith has the ability to spark Georgia's offense after a big punt return.
He's had a great attitude going into his junior campaign, and as long as he holds on to the football, he can help put quarterback Aaron Murray and the offense in great shape.
