Richt: DE Jones’ college career over after surgery

Georgia coach Mark Richt wouldn’t divulge exactly how long defensive end Abry Jones would be out when the senior underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left ankle two weeks ago.

On Monday night on his radio show, Richt said Jones’ college career is over.

Jones, from Warner Robins, was already expected to be out for the rest of the regular season, based on what his high school coach said.

Richt mentioned Jones’ was done as a Bulldog when talking about how Brown’s career is over.

Richt said Jones “is not going to play again for Georgia. Marlon Brown is not going to play again for Georgia. (Sophomore) Michael Bennett will get to play, which is a blessing. It’s just sad that those guys senior years ended prematurely because they’re great guys. I still think have great careers in the NFL.”

Jones has 17 tackles this season and 106 for his career. He also had 13 1/2 tackles for loss and five sacks at Georgia.
