Michel to Miss the Rest of Spring

ATHENS - Sony Michel will miss the remainder of spring football practice.

Sony Michel missed four games last season with a broken bone in his left shoulder and his spring practices probably are over after only four practices.

Georgia coach Mark Richt made a brief appearance with reporters after practice Thursday night to update injuries. He said the reason Michel wasn’t practicing was due to a shoulder injury.

“He’ll probably miss the rest of the spring,” said Richt, who said Michel won’t need surgery. “He should be fine in a matter of weeks.”

Richt said he didn’t know if it was the same shoulder injured last season.

The sophomore from Plantation, Fla., rushed for 410 yards and five touchdowns in eight games in 2014.

Georgia’s tailbacks this spring practicing include Chubb, Keith Marshall, Brendan Douglas and A.J. Turman. Incoming freshman Tae Crowder is expected this summer.

Richt said receivers Shakenneth Williams and Charlie Hedgedus are out with hamstring injuries.

“Not sure how severe those will be,” Richt said. “Will they get any more spring? That remains to be seen.”
