ATHENS - Cornerback Shattle Fenteng, considered a contender for a starting spot when Georgia’s preseason practices began, is expected to need shoulder surgery, likely ending his season.
“I think Shattle, it will be doubtful that he’ll play again this season,” coach Mark Richt
said Wednesday. “I’m pretty sure he’s going to require some surgery on his shoulder.”
The 6-foot-2, 187-pound Fenteng sustained the injury during August practices and “it never got better,” Richt said.
“He’s a guy who is tall, we use the term long,” Richt said. “He’s got long arms, he’s a good athlete. He would have been a guy that we thought as he learned what to do could matchup against some bigger guys. It just didn’t work out for him this year.”
Fenteng played late in the opener against Clemson on special teams. He has three years to play two seasons so he could redshirt.
