ACL Injury Ends College Career Of Georgia WR Marlon Brown

Georgia wide receiver Marlon Brown has seen his season and college career come to an end after suffering an ACL injury during the team’s 37-10 win over Ole Miss this past Saturday. Brown injured his knee in the third quarter after hauling in a 30-yard reception. Brown racked up an impressive 113 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game with a torn ACL.

Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt confirmed the bad news for Brown on Sunday night.

Brown led the team in receptions with 27 and was second on the team in receiving yards with 469. He found the endzone four times this season. For his career, Brown had eight touchdowns and 851 yards.

At 6-foot-4, 216 pounds, Brown hoped to catch the eyes of NFL scouts with his impressive size leading up to the draft. Unfortunately for the senior wide receiver, he will need to spend the draft season rehabbing his torn ACL. It is an unfortunate ending to his career but he went out with one of his best games ever.
