There is some bad news for the Georgia Bulldogs defensive backfield. Freshman Reggie Wilkerson was working with the first-team during spring practices after enrolling in the school early, but during recent workouts it is being reported that Wilkerson suffered a potentially serious knee injury.

Wilkerson was a standout during spring practices and he was receiving plenty of praise from the coaching staff. Unfortunately, now there is concern that the knee injury could be season-ending.

The freshman’s teammates took to Twitter to send their condolences and seek out well wishes from the Bulldogs fan base:

Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham had said during the spring that Wilkerson could have an immediate impact.

“He’s a very conscientious guy, wants to do things exactly right,” Grantham said. “He’s very hard on himself, and I think he’s flashed, he’s just gotta continue to work. I see him as a guy that can be in our rotation.”

If the knee injury isn’t too serious, Wilkerson is the type of young man who will be able to bounce back. If the knee injury ends his season, it will be an unlucky twist of fate, but you can expect Wilkerson to come back stronger than ever with some added fire to be the best.
