Scott-Wesley should be ready when Georgia begins practice

Justin Scott-Wesley, who had arthroscopic surgery on his knee two weeks ago, should still be ready for the start of Georgia’s preseason practice.

“Justin will be able to go,” coach Mark Richt said. “There might be a guy or two you might have to monitor the amount of reps, the volume of routes for him. But I think he’ll be fine. From the very first day he’ll be practicing.”

Scott-Wesley, a fifth-year senior, hasn’t been able to reignite his career since tearing his ACL in October of 2013. He didn’t make it back until midway through last season, and only finished the season with three catches for 52 yards, including a touchdown.

Georgia will generally be healthy heading into camp, according to Richt.

“Health-wise we’re in good shape,” Richt said. “I can’t think of any guy right now coming into camp not being able to participate.”
