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.
