Terrible news to share out of Athens as one of Georgia’s receivers recently suffered an injury that’s going to take him off the field this fall.

Unfortunately, during a recent Bulldog practice, receiver Dominick Blaylock suffered a torn ACL. This news was first reported by 247Sports.

The only thing that makes this story worse is the fact that Blaylock worked hard all offseason to rehab from the torn ACL he suffered during Georgia’s appearance in the 2019 SEC Championship Game. Tragically, Blaylock just tore the same ACL in practice.

During his freshman season last fall, Blaylock caught 18 passes for 310 yards and five touchdowns.

The Georgia native signed with the Bulldogs as a four-star prospect and the nation’s No. 36 overall recruit in the 2019 recruiting cycle. He was rated as the nation’s No. 5 high school receiver coming out of Walton High School.

Following this disappointing news, Georgia released the following statement on Blaylock’s injury:

“University of Georgia sophomore wide receiver Dominick Blaylock suffered an injury to his left knee Wednesday during a non-contact drill. Surgery will be required and he will miss the 2020 season. A full recovery is expected.”
