JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — It looks like Georgia will be down another linebacker for its bowl game.
Davin Bellamy, a sophomore outside linebacker, suffered a minor lower leg injury in practice on Wednesday. Bellamy was seen walking with crutches on Wednesday night, but walking on his own by Thursday morning. The player also posted on social media that he was “A OK.”
But Bellamy is still expected to miss Saturday’s bowl game against Penn State, according to 247Sports.
Bellamy, who has started two games this year, has three sacks this year, third-most on the team. He also has 33 tackles, 5.5 for a loss.
Georgia is still in pretty good shape depth-wise at outside linebacker, with starters Jordan Jenkins and Leonard Floyd as well as talented sophomore Lorenzo Carter.
But with Jenkins and Floyd set to depart the program, the fact Bellamy’s injury appears to be minor is good news. He would be line for more playing time next year, along with Carter, Chuks Amaechi and D’Andre Walker.
