Georgia wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley won‚Äôt be ready as fast this summer as some of his teammates returning from torn ACLs.
‚ÄúI‚Äôm not a doctor and I‚Äôm not an athletic trainer, but I don‚Äôt know if he‚Äôs quite as far along as some of the other guys,‚Äù coach Mark Richt said. ‚ÄúHe seems to be going at it at a slower pace.‚Äù
Still, Scott-Wesley is expected to be back in time for the season opener.
‚ÄúI think he‚Äôll be ready game one,‚Äù Richt said. ‚ÄúI don‚Äôt even know if there are any restrictions on what he can do in the summer. I think it‚Äôs just a matter of him getting more comfortable as he goes.‚Äù
Scott-Wesley is in line for a one-game suspension after his marijuana arrest last fall.
Quarterback Hutson Mason, also in Macon, gave an update on receiver Malcolm Mitchell and tailback Keith Marshall, coming back from torn ACLs.
‚ÄúMalcolm is running sprints with us and he‚Äôs kicking everybody‚Äôs butt,‚Äù Mason said. ‚ÄúKeith is running sprints with us. He looks good. The weird thing about Malcolm is he‚Äôs about as 100 percent as they go, I think they‚Äôre just not ready to release him yet (for pass skeleton).‚Äù
