Report: Starting Georgia Cornerback Likely Out Several Weeks With Broken Foot
Cornerback Malkom Parrish is likely to miss the start of the season after suffering a foot injury.
Georgia senior cornerback Malkom Parrish has broken a bone in his foot, according to Seth Emerson of DawgNation. Surgery is required and the typical recovery time for such an injury is several weeks.
With Georgia’s season opener just over two weeks away, this means Parrish is likely to miss at least the first game against App State and possibly more of the first part of the season. Georgia’s second game, which is just over three weeks from now, is against Notre Dame in Indiana.
The Brooks County High (Quitman, Ga.) product has started 25 games over the past two seasons. Last season, Parrish – who is arguably the best open field tackling defensive back in all of the SEC – recorded 49 tackles.
