Hamilton Out For Season


DSC_6802Senior safety Jakar Hamilton will miss this season due to a fractured ankle, the announcement was made following today’s practice by coach Mark Richt.

“Jakar has a fracture that historically takes two or three months to heal," Richt said. "My guess is he won't play this year. He does have the opportunity to redshirt. That's my best guess on what will happen. It's in his leg down toward his ankle. It's something he's been having issues with but the pain was moving a little on a daily basis. A bone scan showed it. It was something we couldn't detect otherwise.

"Jakar is a very good special teams player and competing for downs as a safety," Richt added. "A young guy like Corey Moore will have a better opportunity to play on specials and is one step closer to the field as a safety. Maybe this will light a fire under him."
