ATHENS, Ga. -- A coach’s putdown angered Ray Drew enough to go too hard during a practice rep 10 days ago -- and ironically enough, led to the sophomore defensive end sustaining a concussion.

Drew said he had won a rep in one-on-one blocking drills when one of Georgia’s coaches insulted both himself and the offensive lineman he beat. So Drew went after Mark Beard on the next play and the head-to-head collision between them gave him the concussion that kept him out of practice for more than a week.

“One of the offensive coaches said, ‘You let Ray Drew beat you, man. He’s soft, you’re soft. Both of y’all are soft,’ ” Drew said. “So I kind of took offense to that and I kind of went more helmet and hands on the rep later and kind of caught more of his helmet and everything, trying to put him on his behind. It didn’t turn out quite the way that I wanted it to.”
