Injury to limit another starting UGA lineman for the spring

When Georgia takes the field for spring practice in March, the Bulldogs will do so without the entire right side of their starting offensive line.

UGA confirmed a week ago that starting right guard Chris Burnette will miss all of spring practice after undergoing shoulder surgery.  Wednesday, the school confirmed that starting right tackle John Theus recently underwent surgery to repair a fracture in his right foot.

Unlike his line mate, however, Theus is expected to return at some point during the spring sessions.

Theus was a five-star member of UGA’s 2012 recruiting class.  As a true freshman this past season, Theus started all 14 games for the SEC East champion Bulldogs.

The good news is that both Theus and Burnette are expected to fully recover and be 100-percent healthy for the start of summer camp in six months or so.
