Quarterback Jamie Newman has been rehabilitating a foot injury this offseason, according to a report from Georgia Bulldogs Sports Network radio partner 680 The Fan.
Former UGA quarterback Hutson Mason cited an unnamed source on Friday who he said is “very close to the Georgia football program.”
Mason said he did not know if Newman, a Wake Forest transfer, would be “100 percent healthy” when the team starts fall camp next Monday…
Mason said that while Newman’s current status is unknown, he’s sure Newman had been limited, per his source.
“What I do know is that his reps have been limited this summer,” Mason said. “So much that a lot of the other quarterback reps have been evenly distributed amongst the other quarterbacks on the roster.
“When I hear ‘rehab,’ I go, OK, that’s a pretty serious injury. You don’t rehab an ankle sprain. You rehab something that is pretty, relatively serious.”
I repeat: well, shit.
So, Georgia’s top two quarterbacks are both dealing with recovering from injuries.
To reiterate: well, shit.
