Georgia freshman QB D’Wan Mathis’ condition has improved following emergency brain surgery Thursday.

Mathis underwent surgery to remove a cyst that was on his brain. The surgery took place in Athens, and he remains in ICU. However, there’s some positive news.

DawgNation’s Mike Griffith is reporting that Mathis will be moved from ICU to a regular room on Saturday, per the family. Furthermore, doctors expect the QB to be released from the hospital within a week.

That’s great news for the signal caller, his family and the Bulldogs.

“All the stars lined up for us in the sense that D’Wan was at the right place at the right time with the best specialists in the world,” Terence Mathis said.

“To have men like Coach (Kirby) Smart and Coach (James) Coley at his side through all of this along with the medical staff at UGA, was paramount.”

Thankfully, Mathis seems to be progressing rather well, and we certainly hope for a full recovery.
