Freshman defensive lineman De’Andre Johnson isn’t expected to return to the team in 2014 for health reasons, according to 247Sports.

The health issue is believed to be with his back, and he hasn’t been taking part in offseason workouts, although Georgia has made nothing official.

Johnson could get a medical scholarship, which would allow him to stay on scholarship to finish his education at Georgia. Johnson redshirted this past season.

  1. If he can’t return, I hope he’s allowed the medical scholarship that will allow him to get his degree. Always hate to see players careers end from injury. I’m glad the NCAA allows the medical scholarships….great system!
