Georgia OL Justin Shaffer shares positive update on neck injury
Here’s some great news for Georgia’s offensive line in 2020.
On Thursday, Justin Shaffer shared on Twitter that he has been cleared to return to football activity after missing the final eight games of the 2019 season with a neck injury. Shaffer will be a senior in 2020 and could be a big part of the Bulldogs’ offensive line.
Prior to his injury, Shaffer played six games for Georgia, making two starts and playing mostly at left guard. His first career start came in the Bulldogs’ win over Tennessee on Oct. 5.
Shaffer has plenty of playing experience with Georgia, as he appeared in 12 games in 2018 and eight in 2017. He’s a former 3-star recruit from Ellenwood, Ga.
With Shaffer apparently back in the fold, Georgia can potentially help fill the void left by Cade Mays, who opted to transfer to Tennessee last week. So whatever depth the Bulldogs can attain for the offensive line may potentially help next season.
