Georgia football injury report: Travon Walker, D’Wan Mathis, Lawrence Cager

ATHENS — Georgia coach Kirby Smart revealed that freshman defensive lineman Travon Walker has had his arm in a cast because of a broken wrist.

He had something bothering him, and they ended up finding out what it was,” Smart said on Tuesday night. “He had to get surgery on his wrist. He’s expected back real soon, like next week.”

Walker was playing on the kickoff team and was part of the Bulldogs’ deep defensive line rotation.

Smart reiterated that senior graduate transfer receiver Lawrence Cager will be week to week with the shoulder and rib injuries that sidelined him the second half of the loss to South Carolina.

But Cager is doubtful to play for the No. 10-ranked Bulldogs against Kentucky at 6 p.m. on Saturday night in Sanford Stadium.

“It will probably be week to week, it’s not looking good this week,” Smart said. “But it’s going to be week to week (depending on) how fast he heals.”

Smart said freshman quarterback D’Wan Mathis continues to work with the team but is not cleared for contact yet.

“He’s getting closer, we’re hoping, he’s getting to do more,” Smart said. “He’s getting to do some scout-team things and do more activity. But he’s still not cleared to play and take live reps soon. And we’ll hope that’ll be soon.”
