Yesterday it was learned that linebacker Brandon Burrows’ name can be added to the long list of players Georgia has lost this offseason. The redshirt freshman underwent shoulder surgery on Tuesday.
Burrrow’s unavailability adds to depth concerns at that stretch from linebacker to tailback to O-line and almost across the board in Athens.
Just don’t say that to linebacker Christian Robinson:
“People think we have depth issues. I just think we need guys to step up. That’s at any position. We have enough guys here at Georgia to get it done. Richard (Samuel) is going to step up and help us at the running back position and somebody’s going to step up at linebacker and make those plays. They may not have as many reps, but it’s a matter of guys realizing they have shoes to fill.”
That’s certainly the attitude a team leader should share. There’s nothing wrong with positive thinking.
But if teams with depth issues weren’t so often undone by those very issues, you wouldn’t have such hand-wringing all across the country over… depth issues. Truth is, depth issues are a concern at Georgia. A big concern.
