Wide receiver Marcus Romesy injured his ankle after scoring a touchdown in the first quarter of Saturday's Florida-Georgia game. Rosemy-Jacksaint ran a post route, was hit in stride by quarterback Stetson Bennett, and was off to the races. Rosemy-Jacksaint extended for the pylon and scored a touchdown, his first career score. A Florida defender, however, came crashing down on his ankle.
The sideline announcers immediately became deflated as it appears to be a serious injury. With George Pickens not traveling down Jacksonville for the game, many thought that Rosemy-Jacksaint would see an increased role in Todd Monken's offense. He was expected to do exactly what he did on the scoring play: use his sharp route-running abilities to counter Florida's aggressive blitz looks. It appears that Rosemy-Jacksaint will be sidelined for a while, but it is too early to be sure. At Dawgs Daily, we will provide updates as more reports come in.
It's very disappointing to see this happen to a talented, young pass-catcher for the Bulldogs. Fans should now expect to see a lot more of Jermaine Burton as well as the usual group of Kearis Jackson, running back James Cook and Pickens when he returns.
During a year which also saw Dominick Blaylock get injured, tearing his ACL, this hurts the Georgia pass-catchers room even more.
