As the 2017 season quickly approaches, the Georgia Bulldogs got some news they didn’t want to hear.

According to, starting CB Malkom Parrish missed Wednesday’s practice after suffering a foot injury earlier in the week.

Parrish has started 25 games over the past two seasons, so if he has to miss an extended period of time, the Bulldogs will have a tough time replacing him.

Parrish had 49 tackles and two interceptions last season and had 42 tackles and two picks back in 2015.

The Bulldogs open the 2017 season on Saturday, Sept. 2, against Appalachian State. At the moment, it’s unclear if Parrish will be able to return in time for that contest.
