University of Georgia wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley has had knee surgery and the rising senior should be ready for the start of the 2015 season. Seth Emerson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported the story.
This isn’t the first time that the rising senior has had knee issues. Scott-Wesley tore his ACL back in 2013 and has not been the same since. Last season, he had just three receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown. In three seasons with the Bulldogs, Scott-Wesley has 25 receptions for 498 yards and four touchdowns. It is unclear whether or not this operation is on the same knee that suffered the torn ACL.
Hopefully, he can recover in time for the start of the season and return to form so that the Bulldogs can make a run at both the SEC throne and a spot in the College Football Playoff.
Georgia opens the 2015 season, its fifteenth under coach Mark Richt, at home against UL-Monroe on September 5.
