The latest is John Theus of University of Georgia, who had surgery Wednesday at St. Mary's Hospital to repair a fifth metatarsal fracture in his right foot. Theus, a 6-foot-6, 309 pound freshman started at right tackle at all 14 games this past season and will miss at least part of spring practice. He is expected to recover in time for preseason practice, according to the team.
It is unsure if Theus, from Jacksonville, FL, suffered the injury during the season or sometime after. He came to Georgia as a 5-star-rated recruiting prospect and became the third player to start at tackle since freshmen became eligible to start a season opener at the tackle position.
This news means that less experience players will get an opportunity to get more snaps in practice as the team tried to build depth on the line.
