Sports Illustrated̵7;s DawgsDaily reports that Pickens did not go to Jacksonville, Fla., for the contest. The game will be played on the TIAA Bank Field in a neutral venue at 3:30 pm on Saturday.
It was the second in a row that Pickens missed as he was dealing with a upper body injury. He didn’t come to Kentucky last weekend, despite participating in the entire week before.
Pickens, 6 foot 3 tall, weighing 190 pounds, emerged as a true freshman of the Bulldogs, amassing 49 tackles with 727 yards and eight taps. He’s a bit quieter in 2020 as a midfielder Stetson Bennett IV had struggled to replace the old starter Jake Fromm, scoring only 13 passes in 140 yards and two touches in four matches.
However, Pickens presents a game-changing weapon for Georgia’s offense. Without Pickens would force Georgia to depend on a strong run and solid defense – but also traumatic – to keep pace with Florida’s high-scoring and efficient attackers.
