UGA DB Likely To Miss First Few Games With Foot Injury


Georgia Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart became the bearer of bad news on Tuesday afternoon. The reigning SEC Coach of the Year told reporters at Georgia’s daily football press conference that a contributing defender would be sidelined for four to six weeks.

Tyrique McGhee, a 5-10 187 lb defensive back out of Peach County high school, suffered a foot injury during Saturday’s scrimmage at Sanford Stadium and will likely miss the first few games of the season.

“Eric Stokes I think cramped up a little bit,” Smart said. “Tyrique McGhee had a little foot injury but I don’t know the results of that yet. Unscathed to me would be exactly that. Those two things didn’t seem serious. We’ll know more later on. You go into these scrimmages a little worried because you’ve got guys on the ground more often. It seemed like we came out all right.”

Whether or not it’s a broken foot is unknown to us yet.

McGhee, who has played just about every position possible at defensive back, has played in 27 games during his Bulldog career, with 1 start.  He has recorded 34 total tackles, an interception and a forced fumble as well.

McGhee will likely make his return against Middle Tennessee State in week 3, at the earliest.
