tjb Posted September 23, 2010 Share Posted September 23, 2010 (edited) Nose tackle Justin Anderson will have season-ending toe surgery, head coach Mark Richt said after Wednesdays practice.Anderson, a junior, missed the past two games with turf toe, and Richt said the decision was made to get the surgery now so he could be ready for his final year. Anderson has already taken a redshirt year, so he would not be eligible for a sixth season.The decision also hurts the team depth-wise at the position. DeAngelo Tyson has been starting there, and Kwame Geathers got some snaps against Arkansas. Brandon Wood and Abry Jones have also shifted inside in certain packages.The nose position, we still feel like were still good with DeAngelo and Kwame, Richt said. And other people can jump in there.LinkReally bummed with the news. I was excited to see him get in there, think he would have been a monster in there. He just can't seem to catch a break. Man, does the light ever need to go on for Kwame! C'mon big man, we need you!In other news, at least it looks like we'll be getting Branden Smith back...
