Freshman Georgia lineman tears ACL

ATHENS - Georgia freshman offensive lineman Jake Edwards tore his ACL and will take a medical redshirt this season, a source told Dawgs247.com.

Edwards was likely to redshirt this season anyway, but had an outside chance to get involved at the guard position. He was listed as a three-star prospect coming out of Heard County High School.

The medical redshirt means that should Edwards have to miss another season in the future because of injury he would be able to apply for a sixth season of eligibility.
