Georgia WR Justin Scott-Wesley suffers ‘minor setback’

University of Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley took to Twitter this afternoon and claimed that the knee surgery he underwent recently is just a “minor setback” and nothing to be concerned about.

It was reported earlier by Seth Emerson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Scott-Wesley had the surgery, but would probably be ready to participate in team activities by early August. Still, some probably considered it a red flag since the rising senior tore his ACL in 2013 and has yet to return to proper form. Scott-Wesley only appeared in six games last season, reeling in three passes for 52 yards and a touchdown.

Hopefully, he can find his stride his senior year and become an extra weapon in the Bulldogs’ passing attack now that running back Todd Gurley has made the jump to the pros and so Nick Chubb has some help shouldering the load.

Georgia opens the 2015 season, its fifteenth under coach Mark Richt, against UL-Monroe at home on September 5.
