Georgia football injury report: Brian Herrien completely over ‘one-time’ back spasms
ATHENS — Georgia senior tailback Brian Herrien said he has not had any recurring issues with the back spasms that sidelined him against South Carolina.
Herrien, meeting with the media for the first time since his absence in the 20-17 overtime loss to he Gamecocks on Oct. 12, explained how the issue escalate.
“One day I just woke up with back spasms, kind of tight,” said Herrien, who’s second on the team with 53 carries for 311 yards and 5 touchdowns. “It (felt) like a bruise, but it just got worst and worse, and on Saturday, it was he worst it felt and I had to sit out, I couldn’t move.
“I don’t feel like it will be something that comes back. It was just that one-time thing.”
Herrien has proven a valuable weapon for the Bulldogs, effective in short-yardage and near the goal line, were his hard-charging sale has proven hard to stop.
Georgia’s offense appears to be getting healthier with the recent return of starters Solomon Kindley (left guard) and Kearis Jackson (hand).
The defense might also get a boost if Tyson Campbell continues a successful comeback from the turf toe injury that has sidelined him since Sept. 14.
The No. 10-ranked Bulldogs (6-1, 3-1 SEC) play at Jacksonville against Florida (7-1, 4-1) at 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 2.
