ATLANTA, Ga.- – It is the unfortunate time of the year, when we have to hear about injuries on the football field. This past Monday was just another example of how football can be a cruel game on that front.

It was simple quarterback and receiver drills for the Bulldogs with senior wideout Justin Scott-Wesley split out wide . He would then run his route, lose his footing and fall to the ground. What next? He started to grab his knee and then got up to walk off the field.

He would be joined on the sideline eventually by his fellow senior wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell to check on him. Scott-Wesley soon left the field under his own strength while being accompanied by a member of the UGA medical training staff.

As of right now, UGA has not released any details on the severity of the injury to Scott-Wesley. Do keep in mind, that Wesley also dealt with a season-ending torn ACL in the Tennessee game in 2013. Last season he missed seven games with an injury suffered during fall camp.

In good news, UGA was able to get sophomore wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie back on the field Tuesday from a hamstring injury.

If any news breaks on the Justin Scott-Wesley injury situation, we will have a story right here on

Huge Recruiting News

Quarterback Jacob Eason out of Lake Stevens, Washington has been on the mind of Georgia fans all the way back to last summer when the five-star prospect committed to UGA following their annual ‘Dawg Night’ event. Even with the changing of offensive coordinators, the standout signal-caller has remained committed.

The commitment took a step forward earlier this week, when he tweeted out that he would be signing his financial aid agreement with UGA.

While the FAA doesn’t guarantee that Eason is Athens bound, it means that Georgia will be unlimited contact with their recruit. It also means that Eason will be able to enroll early at UGA.
