ACL injury will end season, collegiate career for Georgia WR

Some bad news for Georgia and senior receiver Marlon Brown. A knee injury in Saturday’s 37-10 win over Ole Miss resulted in Brown limping off the field in the third quarter during a 30-yard catch. Unfortunately for Brown, he won’t be returning to the field any time soon.

Mark Richt confirmed Sunday evening in a release that Brown has a torn ACL and needs season-ending surgery. His career with the Bulldogs is also over.

Brown was tied for first on the team with receptions (27) and second on the team in receiving yards (469) with four receiving touchdowns on the season — most of which came in three games this year. He finishes his career with 851 yards and eight touchdowns.

If there’s any silver lining to the situation, it’s that Brown’s last collegiate game was among his best. He finished the day with three catches for 113 yards and a score.

    This is a real shame. Marlon was a class guy. I wish him a complete recovery and success in whatever direction life takes him.

    Can he get an injury waiver or is it too late?

    I had acl surgery many years ago and I can tell you it’s a long healing process. Hopes he makes a complete recover.

    That should be “I hope he makes a complete recovery”.
