Spring Practice Day 9: News and Notes

ATHENS - Josh Kendall's news and notes from Georgia's spring practices.

WILSON, KING INJURED: Sophomore wide receiver Tony Wilson suffered a broken leg during Saturday's scrimmage that required surgery Monday. Wilson, who caught 14 passes for 124 yards last year, will miss the remainder of spring practice and won't be able to run for at least 10 weeks.

Wilson, who was hurt running a reverse, is expected to be back full speed by the fall.

Redshirt freshman running back Caleb King suffered a knee injury during the scrimmage. King walked off the practice field early during Monday's workout, but Richt doesn't think the injury is serious.

"It's just more sore than he thought it would be and (head athletic trainer Ron Courson) just wants to be real complete on it," Richt said. "We don't think it's super bad right now, but we'll take a look and see."

King was expected to have an MRI either Monday night or some time today.

DEFENSE SETTING PACE: After watching film of Saturday's scrimmage, Richt thinks his offense has some work to do, he said.

"I feel like the defense is just ahead," he said. "It's obvious they are ahead. We've got more depth on defense, too. The defense can roll more guys in who are ready to play, which helps."
