Georgia football has suffered another injury in fall camp. This time it was freshman tight end, Lawson Luckie.
Luckie out of Norcross, suffered the injury during Georgia’s scrimmage last Saturday. Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald reported that Luckie will need to undergo surgery. The timetable of when Luckie will be back is unknown.
Obviously, it sucks losing such a talented player. But Georgia did sign two tight ends in the 2023 recruiting cycle. So, expect Pearce Spurlin, the other freshman tight end to get a ton of looks and possible playing time as a result.
The tight end room is the deepest and probably the most talented position group the Dawgs have. Any time you lose a guy for an extended amount of time doesn’t feel all that great, but the tight-end group should be ok. Also, how many tight ends can you use on one play?
Luckie has time to recover from the injury with Georgia playing UT-Martin on September 2nd. But really Luckie’s absence won’t be felt unless he misses the South Carolina game in week 3. Obviously, the first 2 weeks of Georgia’s schedule are important for a freshman to get a good amount of snaps. We will see how it will all shake out with Luckie’s surgery and recovery timetable.
