Hurtin’ puppies

Well, shit.

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.

    Well, shit. No shit.
    Damn. Foot injuries are a bitch to get over if you don’t get off of it completely, at least it was in my case.


  2. I sure wish this were our biggest concern for the 2020 season.

    McGarity: “In light of the advice of public health officials, and the danger posed by the coronavirus, the University of Georgia is now recommending that the SEC postpone the season for….googles frantically….let’s see, second degree..metatarsal..that the SEC postpone the season for 4-6 weeks.”

    Well, now we know the actual, actual reason why Kirby went so hard at Daniels.

    Okay, so I guess we need to reserve our vote on having a season until we know we’ll have a QB ;(

    • This is the kind of self-interested mind-set that has been so glaringly lacking from this summer. The problem with a world-wide pandemic is you have to, like, care about OTHER people for a little while. People are the worst!

        Apparently COVID not only attacks the respiratory system but our sense of humor as well. I’ll be more careful around the holier-than-thou group looking for that higher ground of recognition.
        I won’t waste my time sharing my true heart about all that’s taken place this year, including the loss of some people who are very special to me. Thanks for the heads up and lesson in self-righteousness.

    Damn, dem handbags must be drooling now. Going to be real tough to get through an SEC season if you’re starting off with a hurt paw.

    Not to question Hutson’s credibility (and agreeing thatif true it would really suck), but ‘unnamed source close to the program’, may be doing a lot of heavy lifting there. I am not willing to fall on my sword just yet. I am also not positive if JT’s wheel is 100%. All we know is that if there is a solution, Kirby will find it to give us the best chance of success.

    Someone tell Seth Emerson to cancel the season for us.

    In all honestly, does it really matter? We played with a QB who was incapable of throwing the ball 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage last year. And we all know that SEC will not play football this year, so we have that going for us.

      That’s weird, because I coulda sworn most of the long balls Fromm missed in 2019 were overthrows.🤔

    I disagree with Mason on the rehab thing though. Rehab / prehab is common for minor nicks and issues on soft tissue injuries. It could be serious, but I wouldn’t grade something as serious based solely on rehab.

    If someone else (more reliable) backed this up, I’d be concerned. As it is, I’m not freaking out over one hazy report from a source without much of a track record of in-depth reporting.
