Hand Injuries Taking Their Toll On Georgia’s Linebacking Corps

red-cross-logoIn Athens, it’s suddenly all hands on deck at the outside linebacker position.  That’s because three Bulldog ‘backers have been forced from the practice field by hand injuries this week.

Leonard Floyd, a freshman who could start for the Georgia in their opener at Clemson, became the latest Dawg to undergo surgery for a hand injury after fracturing his left hand during practice on Monday.

A day prior, two other outside linebackers broke thumbs during practice — James DeLoach and Davin Bellamy.

According to The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, Mark Richt expects all three linebackers to be back at practice next week.

Georgia Down Two Linebackers Due To Thumb Surgeries

fonzie_thumbs_downGeorgia’s defense will need to be rebuilt in 2013.  So far, that rebuilding project can’t be given a thumbs-up.

Starting sophomore outside linebacker James DeLoach and freshman outside linebacker Davin Bellamy are out of practice for the time being after both suffered thumb injuries during a practice on Sunday.  DeLoach was scheduled to undergo surgery for a sprained ulnar collateral ligament.  It is believed he will be back at practice within a week.  Bellamy broke his thumb and though he’s now had surgery on it and is also nursing a shoulder injury, he should be back for the Bulldogs’ opener at Clemson.

“You’ve got a lot of hand to hand combat in there,” Mark Richt said.  “Your digits get pushed back sometimes, they get damaged.  We’re going to clean them up with the surgeries and then club ‘em up to protect them.”

That, of course, means both players will be wearing mighty big casts for a few days/weeks.

DE Bellamy Picks Dawgs Over Vols, Noles And Ducks

mrsec-breaking-newsThree-star defensive end Davin Bellamy from Chamblee, Georgia has decided to stay at home and play football at Georgia.

He chose the Bulldogs over Tennessee, Florida State and Oregon.

Bellamy made news last week after his visit to Oregon when he tweeted a photo of himself, some fellow recruits, four girls and a bong.  Bellamy said he had nothing to do with the bong.

His mother made news today by telling The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Georgia officials have assured her that defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is going nowhere, despite rumors tying him to the D-coordinator job with the NFL’s New Orleans Saints.

SEC Prospect Tweets Photo Of Self, Girls, Bong

Last Wednesday we wrote “When will they learn?” after Ole Miss commitment Laquon Treadwell posted online a photo of himself and several hundred-dollar bills shortly after making his recruiting visit to Oxford.

Well, apparently no one’s learned anything since Wednesday.

Georgia native Davin Bellamy posted a photo of himself, two other prospects, four girls, and a bong that was snapped during his recent visit to Oregon.

Bellamy told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

 

 

“We were leaving some apartments, and a couple of girls wanted to take a picture with us.  So we were in their room for like 30 seconds.  I didn’t even know the (bong) as in the picture.  After I tweeted out (the picture), I started getting all kinds of text messages.  Then I looked closely at the picture, and I was like ‘What?’ I deleted the picture, but it was already out there…

I told (Oregon’s coaches) the story, and that none of the football players had anything to do with it.  It as just some girls I was taking pictures with.  I guess the girls were using it before we got there. It was just there on the table.  It is what it is…

They understood.  But… these girls on college campuses, they probably know more about the recruits than the coaches do.  Once they saw me, they wanted to take pictures with me and the other recruits.  But like I said, the coaches understood.  It wasn’t in a football player’s room.  It was just girls that wanted pictures with us.”

 

Right now there are four University of Oregon students telling their parents, “It wasn’t mine, it was my roommate’s!”

Why people feel the need to post online every photo taken of them (ego) is beyond this writer.  But as long as kids feel the need to post pictures of themselves, there will continue to be photos of recruits with cash, bongs, and Heaven knows what else.

Bellamy says that Georgia is still his leader, but Oregon has pulled into a tie for second with Tennessee for the defensive end’s services.  So congrats to the fast-rising Ducks and their old “hot chicks with bongs” ploy.

For those who don’t know what a bong is… let’s just say this Paul Harvey ad is a lot more entertaining than that long farmer/truck spot from last night’s Super Bowl:
