Oh, well.

Forget what I said about no serious injuries in Nashville.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart announced redshirt freshman receiver Kearis Jackson will be out “3 to 4 weeks” after suffering “a couple different breaks” in his hand/wrist area on Saturday night.

Jackson was injured with 10:19 left in the game when he was tackled at the Vanderbilt 4-yard line, fumbling the ball at the end of the play.

Smart said Jackson will get back on the practice field as soon as possible with his hand taped up in club-like fashion.

“It will be week to week once he gets back,” Smart said.

First career start, too, which really makes that suck.

    That explains the fumble.

    We’ve been incredibly fortunate on the injury front this far.

    Rather than a strict slot rotation, I saw Jackson and DRob on the field simultaneously several times.

    It appeared that Jackson was clubbed with a cast on his ball carrying hand while being tackled causing him to fumble. Was that what also broke his hand? That’s just wrong.

      I saw the Vandy player with the cast (club) on his hand hit Zeus right in the chin. He went down like a sniper had hit him. That should have been a penalty.

    Well, I guess I understand why he fumbled now. Hate it for him, but hope he gets better soon. Next man up.

    Y’all know Malik Herring didn’t play at all on Saturday right? Emerson said Kirby didn’t have much of an explanation.

    At the game Herring appeared to have a leg injury.

      I know Kirby doesn’t have to tell us anything he doesn’t want to but his secret squirrel routine concerning injuries has gotten stale. Mainly because it’s so unnecessary. I don’t know how he thinks it gives him an advantage and listening to him polka around questions about missing players when he isn’t outright lying is annoying.
