Reggie Wilkinson may have been ruled out of the season before it has even started with reports that he has suffered an anterior cruciate ligament.
It is not know how the new University of Georgia (UGA) cornerback suffered the injury and the UGA are yet to publically address the issue.
Wilkinson was only enrolled this summer and was expected to play a significant role in the Bulldogs defence from the start of the season.
Georgia are already without starting defensive back Josh Harvey-Clemon as he is set to serve a one-game suspension after reports that he was found using marijuana.
The general recovery injury for a torn anterior cruciate ligament injury is six to nine months, meaning he could miss the whole of his freshman season.
Wilkinson was with the first choice defense for the recent G-Day game as Sheldon Dawson missed the match due to a hamstring injury and he was expected to be an emerging force in the coming season.
