Another setback for Bryant

ATHENS – Senior wide receiver A.J. Bryant suffered another setback Monday in a career seemingly full of them.

Bryant had surgery on his left knee to fix ligament damage suffered in Saturday's loss to South Carolina. Bryant, who also has a bone bruise, is expected to miss a month.

"It's a shame for him," Coach Mark Richt said. "Sometimes they say four, and it's three. Sometimes they say four, and it's six, we'll just see how he comes out of that surgery."

Bryant has yet to catch a pass this year. He was injured after taking a lateral from Matthew Stafford and trying to throw a pass to Knowshon Moreno. Bryant, who was in a large leg braces and on crutches Tuesday afternoon, was not available for comment Tuesday.

He has 22 catches for 393 yards in his career. If this injury lingers, he could be a candidate for a medical redshirt, but Richt doesn't expect that to happen, he said.

"I don't think so right now, but we'll see how it goes," he said. "He's going to graduate I think this spring so whether he would come back another year would be on him."
