Rico Johnson latest victim of the "secondary curse"

Who "favorites" a tweet like that anyway?

Gentry Estes is reporting that Johnson is dealing with a "recently discovered long-term medical issue." Georgia will likely place him on a medical redshirt, thereby allowing him to stay on scholarship while not counting against the 85 man limit.
Losing Johnson would be another blow for a thin and inexperienced Georgia secondary that has dealt with attrition for various reasons for much of the past year.
A former standout at Swainsboro (Ga.) High School, Johnson signed with UGA as a wide receiver earlier this year after a season of prep school. He switched to cornerback prior to the start of preseason practices. He earned a spot with the second-string and has played in each of Georgia's four games to this point, either on defense or special teams, totalling five tackles.
