ATHENS, Ga. -- Sterling Bailey felt like a kid on Christmas morning when he arrived at his locker last week on the first day of preseason camp and there was not a non-contact jersey waiting for him.

“I was excited because I wanted to be back out there on the field,” Bailey said after Tuesday morning’s practice. “I haven’t been out there since Dec. 10, so when I stepped foot out there, it was an amazing feeling.”

The redshirt freshman defensive end tore ligaments in his right foot during December bowl practices and missed all of spring practice.
