Report: Kendall Milton suffers injury, expected to miss time
Georgia running back Kendall Milton suffered a knee injury in practice on Wednesday, per a source.
He was scheduled to meet with reporters on Zoom, but ended up missing the video call.
According to a source, he is supposed to “miss several weeks”, including Georgia’s matchup against Florida next weekend in Jacksonville.
However, the good news is that Milton is supposed to make a full recovery. He is also expected to return in a couple of weeks and contribute towards the end of Georgia’s season.
Milton, who’s the Bulldogs’ third-leading rusher this season, missed the matchup against Vanderbilt in September with a shoulder injury.
Georgia head coach Kirby Smart pointed out that Milton could have played, but it wasn’t necessary as Georgia easily defeated the Commodores
"Kendall is nursing a little bit of a shoulder injury from the South Carolina," Smart said. "He probably could've gone but we were gonna wait and see if we needed him to go. He practiced during the week with a black jersey and came out of that late in the week. We were able to hold him and very fortunate to do that. Looking for him to come back."
Milton rushed for 33 yards on four attempts in Georgia’s 30-13 victory over Kentucky this past weekend. He’s currently averaging 5.0 yards per attempt so far this season and has one touchdown, which came against Arkansas.
Milton is the second Georgia running back to suffer an injury in recent weeks. Junior Kenny McIntosh is currently dealing with a hamstring injury. Smart updated McIntosh’s status earlier this week, claiming that he has not been cleared for contact.
Regardless of injuries, the Bulldogs shouldn’t have trouble running the ball against Florida next week. Seniors Zamir White and James Cook are still healthy and already get a majority of the carries. Then there’s also sophomore Daijun Edwards, who is a former 4-star and totaled 218 yards last season as a freshman.
