The undisclosed reasons behind Wilson’s absence from the first few practices of the Fall camp may now be known, as reported by the Macon Telegraph‘s Seth Emerson, who has been covering the story.
Ramik Wilson, dealing with what sources say is a concussion, sitting out a fourth practice. TE Jordan Davis (unknown injury) also out.

While Georgia does have a very deep linebacker group, the loss of a star like Wilson for any amount of time can’t be overlooked, and concussions are serious business now and are not taken lightly.
Head coach Mark Richt has opted not to release injury information about anyone on the team, so “sources” and “people close to the situation” may be as good as we can get during times like this when it comes to injured players.
In other UGA injury news, Emerson also reported that tight end Jay Rome, who pulled up lame on over the weekend, was not practicing, but was “swinging a sledgehammer on the side in a sandpit”.
Read into that what you will.
Also, cornerback Shattle Fenteng was back at practice in a non-contact jersey, but was participating in the drills in full pads.
All three players are looked at as key components to a championship team, so let’s get healthy boys.
