Sterling Bailey has surgery

Georgia OLB signee Sterling Bailey completed his senior basketball season and then had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Sounds like he won't miss much action in Athens though.
“He had some tears in his labrum and he just had to get those repaired,” East Hall coach Bryan Gray said this afternoon.
The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Bailey is slated to be an outside linebacker at Georgia.
Gray said whether the surgery would mean Bailey will redshirt is up to Georgia.
“They have been advising him and he’s been in constant communication with Georgia’s medical staff,” said Gray, who said Bailey wanted to finish the basketball season before undergoing surgery.
Gray said he thinks Georgia is targeting Bailey to be ready to practice in August. Gray believes he could be full-speed by then.
“Knowing the kid and his great work ethic, I’m sure he’ll be ready to go come August,” Gray said.
That would be a good thing. Cuz we need some as many bodies at OLB this Fall as possible.
