Crisis Averted? Scott-Wesley's Knee Injury Reportedly Just A Sprain.

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

The AJC's Seth Emerson is citing sources this evening who say that the non-contact knee injury suffered by Bulldog senior wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley at practice on Monday was just a sprain. Scott-Wesley will reportedly try to play through the injury and return to practice soon.

Georgia is not without options in the receiving corps. Malcolm Mitchell has had a healthy, consistent camp so far, sophomore Shakenneth Williams is flashing solid potential, and Terry Godwin has shown the over-the-top athleticism that made him one of the top prospects in the nation last year. Reggie Davis and Isaiah McKenzie are both proven big-play weapons and N.C. State transfer Charlie Hegedus has major conference experience. But this unit is still one or two injuries away from hanging by a thread. My hope is that Scott-Wesley isn't dogged by this injury, as knee sprains have a bad habit of never really getting completely healed until they're subjected to substantial rest.

For now though, the news is a lot better than it could have been. Given how much Bulldog fans are pulling for JS-W to have a strong senior campaign, that's a real relief. Until later . . .

Go 'Dawgs!!!
