ATHENS — Reggie Carter, the inside linebacker who at one time was considered a favorite to start this season, will not play anymore this season.
Carter has battled shoulder problems this year, and finally had surgery this past week, head coach Mark Richt said. The surgery was first reported by Dawgs247.com.
Carter played in one game, and thus will be eligible for a medical redshirt.
Carter was one of the team’s top reserve inside linebackers in 2013 and 2014, starting once as a freshman, and totaling 36 tackles. When this season began he was a candidate to start at one of the two vacant inside linebacker spots.
But the shoulder injury, and the emergence of UAB transfer Jake Ganus, precluded that. Carter had just two tackles in his one appearance this season.
