Georgia Tech has lost another senior starter on the offense. Wide receiver Jalen Camp will undergo surgery that will keep him out for the remainder of the season, coach Geoff Collins said Tuesday.
Camp’s injury follows injuries to senior offensive linemen Jahaziel Lee and Kenny Cooper. A returning starter, Camp had started three of Tech’s four games this season and had seven catches for 134 yards and a touchdown. His per-catch average (19.1 yards) was the highest on the team among players with more than one catch.
While not disclosing the nature of Camp’s condition, Collins said that surgery had become an inevitability, and the decision was made for Camp to have it this week after the game against Temple.
“And we just managed his reps, managed him to get him through (the Temple game) and then he went out there played really hard in that game and had surgery (Tuesday) morning,” Collins said.
As Camp has yet to redshirt and has played in only four games this season, he is eligible to return his 2020 as a fifth-year senior.
