Southern WR Devon Gales leaving Georgia hospital Wednesday

The inspiring story of former Southern wide receiver Devon Gales will enter its latest chapter on Wednesday, when Gales leaves the Georgia hospital he has been at since being paralyzed in a game against Georgia back in September.

Speaking to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, head Georgia trainer Ron Courson elaborated on Gales’ progress.

“He’s doing well. He’s got some new sensations back,” Courson said. “It’s hard to tell. Sometimes you have to wait a year-and-a-half, two years, to see how they resolve. They’ve got him doing some really progressive things now.”

The report also detailed how Gales can now stand with support for 15 seconds at a time now, and lower-body sensations are also returning. Slowly but surely, he is positively recovering from the horrific hit that caused his spinal injury.

Gales will spend Thursday saying goodbye and thank you to his new Georgia family and hold a press conference, and will then go home to Baton Rouge to return to school.
