The Georgia football program delivered just about the worst news you could imagine on Wednesday when it confirmed wide receiver George Pickens suffered a non-contact knee injury that will require surgery on his ACL.

Georgia head coach Kirby Smart offered up some brief analysis on the injury and what a recovery will look like for Pickens.

“The good news is that the MRI showed it to be an isolated injury with no other structures involved,”  Smart said.  “George is a hard worker. I know he will bring the same work ethic to rehab that he shows in practice every day.”

George Pickens himself has since posted following the news. He posted a black screen on his Instagram page with the caption ‘bye.”
