Looks like its Dents spot to lose now.
Hopefully it isn't major and he gets back soon.

I was looking forward to this competition... Let's hope it's a fast recovery but I doubt it.
Looks like this may be his retirement?

It was reported to be a "serious" pec injury. Probably shredded it, out for 6 months

Insert Akeem Dent. I don't think this will be too huge o f a loss. He hasn't played in a year.

I hate to see it happen and I hope he can recover in time to make an impact this season. With that said, I think the 11 draft was so focused on Julio that a lot of the media pundits disregard Akeem Dent as a player. From the little I've seen from him, I can almost guarantee that he'll make a damn fine linebacker. I'll take it for a 3rd round pick, and hopefully it will only cement that year's draft as another victory for Dimitroff.

Well that pretty much ruins his season. Let's hope Dent lives up to all the hype UGA fans have given him.

I might kick the tires on Crowder or Farrior. Just in case we may need depth there I was already concerned with Nicholas's return.

Fingers crossed!

It's not UGA hype. Dent lead our ST in tackles last year. He's not even a gunner and he lead in tackles on kickoffs by a good margin.
The kid is really good.
