On Thursday night, bad news struck one University of Georgia football great.
Former Georgia offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn, who was drafted in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots, has reportedly suffered a season ending injury.
From ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
Patriots’ first-round pick, OT Isaiah Wynn, tore his Achilles vs. the Eagles and he will be out for the season, per source. The worst of the preseason on display.
Fans had high expectations for the 23rd overall pick this season, but said expectations will have to be shelved until next season. Wynn was receiving a majority of his snaps at right tackle in training camp and was a top backup on the line.
It has not been the luckiest preseason for former Dawgs in New England. In addition to Wynn, UGA great Malcolm Mitchell – who missed last season with an injury – was released by the Pats recently. First round pick Sony Michel is yet to play during preseason due to a procedure on his knee that will likely hold him out until the beginning of the season.
Well-wishes to Wynn for a speedy recovery.
