Georgia Football Confirms Brandon Burrows Shoulder Surgery

The Georgia Bulldogs have announced reserve inside linebacker Brandon Burrows, a redshirt freshman, will likely miss the 2011 season after undergoing surgery on his right shoulder to correct a chronic instability, which sounds horrid. He wasn't expected to compete for starting time, but would've provided depth and participated on special teams.

This isn't the worst news to hit a UGA football player so far this offseason, but it's still quite a setback. That's some brilliant analysis.

Georgia's linebacking corps is beginning to resemble its offensive line as far as depth goes, with Jarvis Jones and Kent Turene still questionable and Richard Samuel gone to the other side of the ball. As long as remaining starters stay healthy there shouldn't be any major issues, but that's kind of a lot to count on.

Brandon Burrows Injury: Shoulder Surgery Could Sideline UGA LB For 2011

Dawgs247.com is reporting Georgia Bulldogs DE/LB Brandon Burrows is likely to miss the upcoming season after having shoulder surgery. Though he's active on Twitter, he hasn't said anything that would confirm or deny the report.

The redshirt freshman was expected to provide inside linebacker depth, which could prove critical with the statuses of Jarvis Jones and Kent Turene up in the air, along with the conversion of Richard Samuel to running back. Not all of those players play the same position as Burrows, of course, but each little bit of missing linebacker depth can't help but affect the entire unit one way or another. It could also pose problems for special teams.

Burrows played on the scout team in 2010. He suffered a pretty serious knee injury while playing as a senior at Walton High School in Marietta.
