Original Article from Saturday, Sept. 27
Freshman Sony Michel suffered a shoulder injury during the first half, and early indications were it would keep him out more than just a week. A source said it looked like it could be a month or more.
“We’ll find out more about (it) later on,” head coach Mark Richt said. “We don’t really know about him.”
[...]Chip Towers of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution initially provided details on the news:
“He’s been special teams captain for that very reason. I mean if he’s not able to come back it hurts for sure,” Richt said.
Edward Aschoff of ESPN later indicated Michel would not be returning to the game:
Michel ended with 17 yards on three carries. Georgia will need to lean heavily on Heisman contender Todd Gurley to fend off the Volunteers, who trailed by just four points at the half.
