Georgia star D’Andre Swift leaves Georgia Tech game with apparent shoulder injury
ATLANTA — Georgia tailback D’Andre Swift left the game at Georgia Tech with 9:32 left in the third quarter with an apparent left shoulder injury.
The ABC commentators reported that Swift was ruled out of the game after the injury.
Swift had shifted into shot gun formation at the Georgia Tech 4-yard line and had taken the direct snap and was running left when he was tackled by linebacker David Curry.
Swift fumbled on the play, the ball recovered by the Yellow Jackets, but all eyes turned to Swift soon after.
The Georgia medical staff sprinted on to the field as Swift stayed down, writhing in pain.
Swift walked off on his own power — his legs apparently fine — but he was bent over in a manner that indicated a shoulder injury.
Swift had 10 carries for 73 yards.
After an extended amount of time inside an injury tent, Swift emerged and sat on the bench, still wearing his pads.
Quarterback Jake Fromm and fellow running back James Cook went over to Swift and were praying with him.
Swift is sitting alone on the bench behind the sideline, ice on his left shoulder, a towel over his head, unattended.
Georgia has yet to issue an update on his health.
