Freshman Johnson not expected to return

semerson@macon.comFebruary 20, 2014 

DeAndre "Moose" Johnson, a defensive lineman who redshirted this past season, will not continue his Georgia football career for medical reasons, Dawgs247.com reported on Wednesday.

Johnson, a freshman, was a three-star recruit last year from Newnan.

Georgia has not yet confirmed Johnson's status. The team could receive a medical disqualification for Johnson, and keep him on scholarship but not have him count against the scholarship cap of 85.
