Abry Jones Injury: Bulldogs DE likely out six weeks, according to report

Kevin C. Cox

Georgia is expected to be without Jones for the rest of the regular season.

Georgia Bulldogs defensive end Abry Jones will miss about six weeks after undergoing surgery on his left ankle, according to his high school coach. Jones tore a ligament in the ankle during the first quarter of Georgia's 29-24 win over Kentucky last Saturday.

When asked about the situation, head coach Mark Richt said only that Jones would miss this weekend's game against Florida. "He won't play this week is all that I can confirm," Richt said. "There's reasons for that, but that's what I'll confirm that this point."

Jones also sprained his left ankle against Vanderbilt on Sept. 22, which forced him to miss Georgia's game against Tennessee the following week. If he does have to sit out for the next six weeks, he will miss the rest of the regular season.

Jones has 17 tackles this season, including one for a loss. He started all 14 games for Georgia last season and finished the year with 48 tackles, including four sacks.
