During Georgia's thrilling 54-48 victory over Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl, sophomore tight end Charlie Woerner suffered what appears to be a lower left leg injury.
After the game, Woerner was spotted wearing a heavy wrap over his left leg and needed to use crutches to move around. It is unknown when Woerner was hurt in the game or the severity of the injury. While using crutches, Woerner was able to celebrate Monday's victory with his teammates.
While Woerner caught only six passes in Georgia's first 13 games, he was a frequent target early against the Sooners. In the first half, Woerner caught three passes for 21 yards and was targeted four times. A product of Rabun County, Woerner has been utilized as mostly a blocker in a tight ends group that has helped propel one of the nation's top rushing attacks.
Woerner has totaled 100 receiving yards this season.
Never miss a local story.
Head coach Kirby Smart will likely be asked about Woerner's status in a teleconference he will hold Tuesday. At tight end, Georgia also rotates Jeb Blazevich, Isaac Nauta and Jackson Harris.
