Another Man Down: UGA DE Jones Won’t Return Due To Injury

On Saturday it was senior receiver Marlon Brown who had his senior season at Georgia cut short by an ACL tear.  Now comes word that senior defensive end Abry Jones has also had his career cut short by injury.

Late last month it was reported that Jones had had surgery to repair ligament damage in his ankle.  The surgery was expected to cost Jones his season, but Bulldog coaches had held out hope that the senior might be able to return in time for a bowl game.  Mark Richt ruled that possibility out yesterday:

 

“He’s done for his senior year and he’s not gonna play again for Georgia…

It’s just sad that those guys’ senior year ended prematurely because they’re great guys.  I still think they’ll have great careers in the NFL.  But it’s just sad for them, sad for Georgia.”

 

Jones was hobbled by the ankle injury for most of the season and the Dawgs’ D has actually been better the past two weeks since a calling out by safety Shawn Williams.  That’s not to say that Jones’ absence helped the defense, only that Georgia has survived without him since his surgery.

Still, it’s a very sad situation when two seniors are lost to injury in such a short timespan.

UGA will play at Auburn on Saturday.
