Draft Scout Justin Scott-Wesley News
08/31/15 - Georgia WR Justin Scott-Wesley's career might be over...Justin Scott-Wesley's Georgia career appears to be over. The Bulldogs' senior wide receiver told his high school coach he's "done playing," the Athens Banner-Herald reported Tuesday. Scott-Wesley suffered his third knee injury in less than two years in practice Aug. 17. Mark Richt told reporters Saturday that Scott-Wesley wouldn't be back in action for "a while, if at all." The worst-case scenario for the Georgia receiving corps seemed to be confirmed by this image and caption posted to Scott-Wesley's Instagram account Monday, in which he appears to have moved on to student coaching.
But Scott-Wesley's high school coach Dondrial Pinkins later back-tracked, saying the Georgia native may have initially spoken out of "frustration" and would continue to hope for the best with his rehab. "If he's able to play, he may play or he may just sit out," Pinkins told the Banner-Herald. "At this moment it's all dependent on how his body feels. Scott-Wesley appeared ready to become a major part of the Georgia passing game early in the 2013 season, when he caught 16 passes for 311 yards over the Bulldogs' first five games. But he was lost for the season with an ACL tear, appeared in only six games in 2014 while battling an ankle injury, and underwent surgery this past summer for a torn meniscus. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
08/24/15 - Georgia WR Scott-Wesley out for opener, maybe more...Senior wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley of Georgia sustained a right knee injury earlier this week during practice and coach Mark Richt told reporters on Saturday that the news is not good. Richt said Scott-Wesley definitely will miss the Bulldogs' opener on Sept. 5 and might be out longer than that. "I'm not sure we'll see Justin for awhile, if at all," Richt said. This is the third significant injury to Scott-Wesley's right knee. In 2013, he tore his right ACL. This summer, Scott-Wesley underwent an arthroscopic procedure to repair his right meniscus, but returned in time for preseason practice. - The Sports Xchange
08/04/14 - Richt on return of WR Scott-Wesley: 'We think it'll be this season'...August has already been terribly unkind to Georgia fans hoping for good news on their oft-injured wide receiving corps. The Bulldogs announced early Friday that Malcolm Mitchell had undergone arthroscopic surgery after injuring his knee during workouts earlier this week, with no timetable yet set for this return. And when discussing junior wideout Justin Scott-Wesley later in the day, the news offered by Mark Richt wasn't much better. I'm not sure when he's going to be able to play a game of football for us, Richt said of Scott-Wesley, per Dawgs247. We think it'll be this season, and he's moving along. He didn't move along quite as quick as some of the others.
The "others" include running back Keith Marshall, who tore his ACL in the same game against Tennessee last October in which Scott-Wesley tore his. But while Marshall is set to play in the season opener against Clemson, Scott-Wesley will join Mitchell in the file folder of Bulldogs whose return is still very much TBD. At the time of his injury, Scott-Wesley was the Bulldogs' second-leading receiver for 2013, with 16 catches for 311 yards. Further complicating matters is Scott-Wesley's post-injury arrest last fall on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge, one that's expected to cost him at least a game's suspension. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
11/02/13 - UGA's Justin Scott-Wesley cited for marijuana possession...After tearing his ACL in early October, Georgia wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley won't be playing again for the Bulldogs until 2014 at the earliest. But when he does, he might be facing a suspension after being arrested on a possession of marijuana charge Thursday. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and other outlets reported Friday that a campus police officer found a glass pipe and a marijuana "grinder" with residue of the drug during a search of Scott-Wesley's dorm room late Wednesday night. A warrant for Scott-Wesley's arrest was issued Thursday, and the sophomore from Camilla, Ga. turned himself in Thursday afternoon. Scott-Wesley was charged with possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and possession of a "drug object," both misdemeanors.
Per the Macon Telegraph, a female was present with Scott-Wesley when an officer traced the smell of marijuana to his dorm room, but was cleared of any wrongdoing. Scott-Wesley initially declined to allow the officer to search the room, but eventually relented. In addition to the paraphernalia, the Telegraph reported the officer recovered "two small red Ziplog baggies containing what proved to be pot." Scott-Wesley was the Bulldogs' second-leading receiver at the time of his injury (and still is), with 16 catches for 311 yards on the season. Violations of the Georgia athletic department's policy on marijuana usage (as in the case of defender Josh Harvey-Clemons) require a mandatory suspension. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
10/06/13 - Georgia running back Keith Marshall and wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley will miss the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligaments in their right knees Saturday during a 34-31 overtime victory at Tennessee. Bulldogs coach Mark Richt confirmed the severity of their injuries at a Sunday afternoon teleconference.
"It's sad for our players," Richt said. "You see them work so hard to get in position to play for Georgia, realize their dreams to play in big games like that, try to win championships and all that. (You see) how much work they put in and how hard they play for you and work and practice for you in the offseason and all that, and one play like that and it's taken away from them. It's heartbreaking." Marshall had rushed for 246 yards and one touchdown on 56 attempts this season. Scott-Wesley had 16 catches for 311 yards and two touchdowns. - AP Sports
