Post Burrows to miss season after shoulder surgery

Thursday July 28, 2011

There was a time a few years back where shoulder injuries were the Bulldog medical equivalent to traffic violations. You didn’t leave Athens without one. Unfortunately our favorite malady rears its head again just before preseason practice gets going.

UGA announced today that RFr. inside linebacker Brandon Burrows will miss the 2011 season after surgery next week on his right shoulder.

With the new strength and conditioning program in the spotlight, the program was clear to point out that the surgery will be to correct “chronic shoulder instability.” That’s fine, but a chronic problem might have been addressed during his redshirt season while Burrows was already recovering from knee surgery. It’s just speculation, but you have to guess that something more recent exacerbated that shoulder condition.

We wish Brandon the best in his recovery and look forward to seeing him back in action. It’s been nearly two years since the ACL injury that ended his high school career, so he must be frustrated and more than ready to get out there.
