Report: Georgia WR suffers broken leg in practice

·1 min read

Per a report from Palmer Thombs of DawgsHQ, Georgia wide receiver Arian Smith suffered a broken leg in practice on Wednesday that will potentially keep him out for the remainder of the season.

Smith will require surgery on his leg, the report notes.

Smith played in only four games as a true freshman due surgery on a broken wrist and then another on a torn meniscus. After a few injuries during the offseason, Smith missed multiple games this year with a lower-leg contusion.

This season, Smith has caught three passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns. He is a track star and was regarded as the fastest player in his class during the 2020 recruiting cycle.

Injuries to the wide receiver position is nothing new for Georgia this season. Both George Pickens (ACL) and Dominick Blaylock (ACL, hamstring) are yet to take the field this year. Jermaine Burton, Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint and Justin Robinson have all missed at least one game as well with their own injuries.
