Leonard Floyd and three letters you don’t want to see.


Georgia junior linebacker Leonard Floyd, considered a top defensive player in the country, underwent an MRI earlier this week on his surgically repaired shoulder, according to a source.

Floyd, who missed the Belk Bowl in December and spring drills, was absent from practice Tuesday due to soreness, but the MRI revealed no damage. He’s expected to return before the season opener Sept. 5 against Louisiana-Monroe.

Maybe it’ll turn out to be nothing, but all things being equal, I’d rather not have to worry about him dealing with that.


UPDATE:  This is good news, though.

    Despite knowing he was recovering from a shoulder injury, when I saw your headline, my first thought was, “Oh no…A. C. L.”

    So I’m actually relieved.

    Call it blind optimism, but doesn’t the phrase “but the MRI revealed no damage” mean we shouldn’t be too worried? Please say yes, please say yes…

    he will be just fine, just gassed a little like gurley in the clempson game last year.

    I’m going to remove my little son’s ACLs just so he can’t tear them once he starts getting into sports.

    Remember when Richt got ultra cautious and limited hitting (2006?) during practices? Then remember our complete inability to tackle that season..

    This is such a Catch-22 at times. You just gotta go with what you know and hope for the best (in this case it was nothing, but for others I’m sure we won’t be as lucky).

    Rip that damn arm off and stick a metal one in dammit!! We’re here to win champeenships don’t ya know?!!!


    • When is that technology gonna get here, for God’s sakes? All these sic-fi movies with the genetically enhanced soldiers or whatever; I would sign up for that in a second if it meant my damn tendons and other cumulative overuse injuries would be healed permantly.

      I’ve been working for the government for over 15 years; when do I get my metal skeleton?

    I never want to see an injury, but a negative MRI isn’t the end of the world. Plus, if there is one position group that we can stand a ding here and there it’s linebacker.

    a Sore shoulder takes a long time to get right, and once you have issues it will flare up on and off for an even longer time. The good news is no damage but I would rather the staff be safe and take all precautions like they appear to be doing than tell him to play through it.


  9. What a jerk! Saw title and my heart sank.
