One of the most talented receivers in No. 4 Georgia’s propeller-driven aerial attack in a jet-based passing era of the game is expected to be sidelined for the foreseeable future, with his availability for a playoff run decidedly up in the air.
What is known: Lawrence Cager suffered an injury to his ankle during practice Wednesday that has been deemed as serious according to at least one report. According to another, the injury could sideline the wide receiver for several weeks, and will definitely cause Cager to miss this Saturday’s game against Georgia Tech and the SEC championship game versus LSU the following weekend.
What isn’t known: Cager’s official status as the football program has yet to publicly address the reports.
Already this year, Cager, a graduate transfer from Miami, has dealt with rib and shoulder injuries that have helped limit him to eight appearances in the first 11 games. Despite the truncated playing time, Cager currently leads the Bulldogs in receptions with 33 and receiving yards with 476. His four receiving touchdowns are tied for second on the team as well.
