Report: Arian Smith is likely out for the rest of the season
Georgia wide receiver Arian Smith suffered a broken leg during practice on Wednesday, according to a report by Palmer Thombs of DawgsHQ.
A source tells DogWatch that Smith is likely to miss the rest of the season.
This comes less than a week after Smith caught a touchdown pass in the Bulldogs’ 43-6 victory over Missouri.
Smith’s career at Georgia has been plagued by injuries.
Earlier this season, head coach Kirby Smart said that the Bradley, Fl. native dealt with a “leg contusion,” which caused him to miss a majority of games this year. He played against Clemson and UAB but missed the next five games. Smith returned for Georgia’s matchup versus SEC East rival Florida, but he didn’t record any stats in the victory.
Smith didn’t play until the Bulldogs’ matchup with Mississippi State last season as he dealt with knee problems. However, in four games in 2020, he hauled in two passes that were both touchdowns.
Smith is easily the fastest member of the football team, but he also runs track and field for UGA. He earned All-American honors as a freshman this past spring for the Bulldogs.
