UGA freshman lineman suffers knee injury

Georgia won’t have freshman offensive lineman Jake Edwards available this season.

The 6-foot-4, 271-pound Heard County product will undergo knee surgery and redshirt, a source told Dawgs247. Edwards is believed to have torn both an ACL and LCL during agility drills.

Georgia had seven other players undergo ACL surgeries since the summer of 2013. The school did not confirm Edwards’ injury Wednesday.

Edwards was a three-star rated recruit. The Bulldogs signed four offensive line prospects, including Isaiah Wynn from St. Petersburg, Fla., Dyshon Sims from Lowndes High in Valdosta and Kendall Baker from Marist in Atlanta.
