ATHENS — Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith underwent ligament surgery on his left wrist on Jan. 28 and will miss spring practice.
However, his recovery is not expected to linger into summer workouts and the rising sophomore is expected to be a full go for preseason camp in August, according to Ron Courson, the Bulldogs’ director of sports medicine.
“A full recovery is anticipated and he expected to fully participate in summer workouts and have no limitations when fall practice begins,” Courson said in a news release circulated by UGA on Friday.
Smith played mainly on special teams and as a backup on defense this past season. He participated in 12 games and finished with 20 tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss. He was named one of five newcomers of the year at the UGA’s Senior Gala in December.
