Georgia wide receiver Rantavious Wooten has already missed some games this season due to concussion symptoms, and now it looks like the lingering effects of that injury are going to keep the junior away from the field for the rest of the season.

Following Georgia’s blowout win over Auburn, which has the Bulldogs one win away from heading back to Atlanta for the SEC title, coach Mark Richt said that Wooten would likely sit on the sidelines for the rest of the year because of that head injury.

Wooten had only played in three games this season, recording two catches for 39 yards and a touchdown.

    I think that whomever decided to name their child “Rantavious” might have had a head injury as well……

    This is a tough break for the kid, but has minimal effect 0n the DAWGS. Right now, we have a slew of receivers that can break a game open, so it is best to let the kid recover if he can from this serious injury. A concussion having this lasting effect on someone, indicates that there may be some permanent type damage and his playing days could be over. Unlike a lot of other schools though, UGA will insure he has a scholarship to get an education, even if his playing days are over. UGA doesn’t discard their injured. I feel sorry for the kid though, and hope he will make the best of his time and get a solid education, if indeed, he has seen the football field for the last time as a player.
