An exile ends.

Jonathan Ledbetter has been reinstated and will play this Saturday against Vanderbilt.

As far as Ledbetter’s role this week, that hasn’t been determined yet.

“How much he’ll play, I don’t know,” head coach Kirby Smart said. “He’s handled everything we asked him to do very well. He has worked really hard.”

Georgia outside linebacker Chuks Amaechi said Ledbetter has been relishing the opportunity to get back on the football field after sitting out the first half of the year.

Speaking with him when Georgia’s football team met Monday, Amaechi said Ledbetter displayed a more enthusiastic demeanor.

“He had a lot more glow to him,” Amaechi said.

Ledbetter also adds depth to a group that is rolling eight players at times.

As far as I’m concerned, the more, the merrier there.

I’m glad he’s back and that he’s worked hard to get there.  Let’s just hope he stays on the straight and narrow, both for his sake and the team’s.

    How did “Dawgs no longer un-Led-ed” not make the headline cut?

    College football may have saved this young man’s life. Without it, who knows where he might be now.

    I pray and hope Jonathan will find success in his struggle with this disease and will have a great time with supportive teammates and coaching staff to help see him through. He’s a DGD for fighting through what is a very, very difficult thing to deal with.
    Now get your “A” out there and wreak some havoc on opposing offenses, Jonathan!

    But…..but…yall are making us all feel guilty for not being at AA. We are happy for Ledbetter, but we are still working on our cures, just not during game time.
