Georgia Bulldogs LB Ramik Wilson misses practice on Monday


For the Georgia Bulldogs, defense is a significant emphasis in the lead-up to the season opener against Clemson, but on Monday, perhaps the unit’s best player was sitting on the sidelines. All-SEC linebacker Ramik Wilson was present at practice, but according to multiple reports, he was not dressed despite no “obvious” injury.

In 2013, the 6-foot-2, 237-pound Wilson led the conference in tackles with 133, and he was named to the All-SEC first team by both the media and the coaches. Because of the high-profile defections of Josh Harvey-Clemons, Tray Matthews and Jonathan Taylor, Jeremy Pruitt and company will be leaning heavily on a quality group of linebackers, but with Wilson on the sidelines and reports that he was joined by fellow stud LB Leonard Floyd, the worry meter is running high in Athens on Monday.

Stay tuned for further updates, but on the bright side for Mark Richt and company, no official and/or ominous announcement has been made surrounding Ramik Wilson and his status.
