UGA’s Marlon Brown out for season with knee injury
Georgia wide receiver Marlon Brown, a senior, will miss the remainder of the season with a left knee injury suffered in Saturday’s victory over Ole Miss, coach Mark Richt said late this afternoon.
“Marlon, unfortunately, has an ACL injury that will need surgery,” Richt said. “So his career at Georgia will be over, or is over.
“But we’re going to be expecting full recovery. That is just an injury people recover from well. And we know he’ll continue on (to) his pro career, because I think he was well on his way to having that happen for him.
“We’re very sad and sorry it happened for Marlon and for Georgia, too. He’ll recover; he’ll do fine; it’s just a hard thing to swallow right now.”
Brown was Georgia’s leading receiver against Ole Miss with three catches for 113 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown in the second quarter.
He is the second front-line receiver Georgia has lost to a season-ending knee injury this year. Michael Bennett was the other.
