Georgia freshman cornerback Rico McGraw was unavailable for Saturday’s 52-20 win over South Carolina due to a right knee injury.
Head coach Mark Richt said McGraw recently underwent an arthroscopic knee procedure to repair his meniscus. Richt said McGraw shouldn’t miss too much time from the team.
“He’ll be back pretty quick,” Richt said.
McGraw was not present for Georgia’s pre-game walk and was later spotted during warm-ups on crutches. McGraw was playing primarily at the star position through Georgia’s first two games.
McGraw has five tackles and one quarterback hurry this season.
With McGraw out of the game, Georgia put junior Quincy Mauger at the star position and gave freshman Johnathan Abram his first start of the season at safety.
