“At this point, our medical facilities are closed…”

Man, you’ve got to feel for Dominick Blaylock.

The injury in the SEC championship game in Atlanta ended the promising wide receiver’s freshman season, but left him ample time to make a recovery in time for the 2020 season.

That rehab came under the watchful eye of Georgia director of sports medicine Ron Courson and staff in Athens until recently.

The novel coronavirus pandemic shut down spring practice at Georgia before it began and with classes now only online, players like Blaylock are working to come back from injuries in their hometowns.

“At this point, our medical facilities are closed,” Courson said through a UGA athletics spokesman. “We are communicating regularly with our student-athletes and coordinating medical care as needed on an individual basis, whether that be home programs developed specifically for them or arrangements in their hometown. Our sports medicine staff is available to help coordinate any medical needs our student-athletes may have during this period.”

Courson is awesome, of course, but there’s only so much watchfulness he can provide from afar.

    Had not thought of that, has to hurt his chances. Wish him well, but his injury was very late, and now he has this setback. Maybe late in the season for him, at best, or it could be a RS year for him where he could help in a stretch run.

      I think that’s probably best case. Misses the early season, then comes back for the final few games and gets a RS.

    Good thing I wasn’t counting on having him back in a meaningful capacity this year.

    One of the WRs I’m looking forward to seeing play again. Looks like he’s on track.

    Well, according to Dr. Herbie, there won’t be any games to play, anyway, so…don’t rush it, DB.
