Georgia Running Back Zamir White Suffers Knee Injury In Scrimmage

This is never what you want to read as a football fan, no matter who you cheer for.

Georgia running back Zamir White, who was just recently given the all-clear after working his way back from a torn ACL on his right knee, has suffered yet another knee injury.

This time, in a non-contact punt coverage drill during the team’s second scrimmage of camp on Saturday, White sustained an injury to his left knee.

“I’m sick for the kid but we don’t know the severity of the injury,” Kirby Smart said during a post-scrimmage briefing.

One source who was attending Georgia’s scrimmage – which was open to donors and parents – told Anthony Dasher of Rivals that White was able to walk off the field under his own power.

White came to Georgia as the nation’s number one ranked running back out of Laurinburg, North Carolina. Though the severity of the injury is unknown, White has proven he can come back from injury in a rather freakishly short amount of time as we saw this offseason.

“There was nobody around,” Smart said. “He and Mark Webb were kind of holding each other up. He’s getting an MRI right now. It was his left, non-surgical knee, but I can’t tell you much more than that.”

Prayers for the best and a speedy recovery.
