Kirby Smart reveals yet another Georgia receiver sustained an injury
Georgia has already dealt with a couple of injuries to playmakers at receiver this spring, and now the Bulldogs may add another name to that list.
WR Arian Smith sustained a sprained wrist in a scrimmage today, Kirby Smart told reporters on Saturday. The injury came at a time when Georgia is already dealing with several players at various stages of recovery from injury.
Star receiver George Pickens suffered a torn ACL earlier this spring and is out indefinitely. Meanwhile, Jermaine Burton is also out after he suffered a hyperextended knee recently. His injury is not known to be serious. Also, receivers Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint (ankle) and Dominick Blaylock (knee) are healing, but not yet cleared to scrimmage.
Smart added that Smith will be fine, according to Anthony Dasher of UGASports.com.
Smith flashed at the end of last season when he played in each of the last four games of the season. He made his first career catch a 31-yarder for a Georgia touchdown against South Carolina, and then caught a 55-yarder in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl against Cincinnati.
The Bradley, Florida native and redshirt freshman is arguably the fastest player on Georgia’s team, and coming out of high school was a 247Sports Composite 4-star prospect. He was ranked as the No. 14 wide receiver nationally, the No. 58 overall prospect nationally and the No. 13 prospect in Florida.
