Former Georgia defensive lineman Malik Herring undergoes knee surgery

ATHENS — Former Georgia defensive lineman Malik Herring underwent surgery to repair the torn ACL in his right knee at the Andrews Institute, per a post on his Twitter feed.

Herring suffered the injury last week while competing in practices leading up to the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.

 

Herring, who measured in at 6-foot-3, 283 last week, was coached up by the Carolina Panthers staff all week. The Carolina football coaches moved Herring around on the defensive line, and he proved effective working inside as well as on the edge.

“He’s hard to move whether he’s on the edge or on the inside,” Nagy noted. “He can take on a couple of blocks, or he can get on the edge and collapse it. He’s a versatile guy you can move around.”
