I have been seeing the question pop up a lot on my timeline recently, “Where in the world is Whit Weeks?”
The freshman from Watkinsville, Georgia, burst onto the scene this season against Mississippi State when he made eight tackles. That started a stretch of games for Weeks where he had 30 tackles in a four-game stretch (Mississippi State, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Missouri). Since then, we haven’t seen much out of the talented linebacker.
It’s not like the defense couldn’t use his productivity. Weeks has been one of the most consistent players on the team. When Omar Speights was out with an injury, Weeks stepped up in a big way. Brian Kelly was asked about where Weeks has been this month and his answer was that Weeks actually suffered an injury that required stitches.
Brian Kelly said freshman LB Whit Weeks had an injury (gash on his foot) and has been stitched up.
Weeks didn't get into the game on defense or special teams vs. Georgia State.
"We will need him this weekend" vs. Texas A&M, Kelly said.
