ATHENS — Kirby Smart said Georgia redshirt freshman tailback Zamir White will be out for spring drills.
“Zamir is coming back, doing really well, but he won’t be doing spring practice other than doing some stuff on the side, doing some running,” Smart said. “He’s done a lot offseason conditioning but he won’t be out there or cleared to go to practice.”
White was injured in August drills playing on special teams while covering a punt.
“Any time you have a non-contact ACL, and then you have a second one, you have to be careful,” Smart said. “When that happens, it makes you wonder if the kid can progress as fast as he did last time.
“He’s running really well, he’s just not going to be involved in he scrimmage. I probably won’t know until early fall camp. He’s been rehabbing really well.”
Smart also said the following players will be out:
DL Michail Carter (shoulder surgery)
LB Rian Davis, (knee surgery)
TE Ryland Goede (knee surgery)
RB Prather Hudson (shoulder surgery)
DL David Marshall (foot surgery)
LB Trezman Marshall (shoulder surgery)
DL Julian Rochester (knee surgery)
“We’ve also had a few hamstring injuries,” Smart said.
Smart added that tailback James Cook has been cleared after suffering a severe ankle injury that required surgery.
