At this point we’ve all heard about Tim Tebow’s bruised shoulder and that’s he’s being held out of contact drills this week. Well, turns out Major Wright and Riley Cooper both had surgery yesterday, compounding the injury issue.
We all also knew that Wright had injured his thumb, but we didn’t know he’d need a plate in it, as was inserted a day ago. He will wear a cast for six weeks, and if he plays we can expect the whole club-hand thing that we’ve seen so many times from defensive linemen.
Riley Cooper had broken his finger on the second play of the game against Kentucky, and he had two screws put into it. No word on which finger just yet, but it is going to be taped to another finger for right now. Wright may play against Georgia, but the article doesn’t specify if Cooper will try to go.
