And Speaking Of Vanishing Safeties.....

What is the deal with Baccari Rambo?

Richt on Monday reeled off several players’ names that he said followed strong springs with a continued high level of play this preseason.
The list included safety Shawn Williams, safety/ cornerback Sanders Commings and cornerbacks Branden Smith and Brandon Boykin.
Notably absent was senior safety Bacarri Rambo, who started every game last season when he was second on the team with 82 tackles and tied for the team lead with three interceptions.
Rambo did not get first-team work in the 10-minute portion of practice open to the media on Tuesday.
Richt said secondary coach Scott Lakatos would have to answer the question of which players are the starters at safety now.
"I wouldn’t know how to answer that," Richt said. "I know there are at least three that are ready to play, if not four."
Williams and Commings were the first-team safeties in practice.
Rambo has not been available for interviews this preseason after practice. A Georgia spokesman said Rambo did not want to do interviews on Monday.

There's something more to the story here.  Either some in-house discipline, or a not-yet-announced suspension for the opener, and I'm beginning to suspect the latter.  I have no inside info, just giving my artful interpretation of the tea leaves.
