08:18 AM ET 04.11 | Former freshman All-American Trinton Sturdivant, a Georgia offensive tackle who had considered entering the NFL draft, is down and out again. For the third time in his college football career, [Sturdivant] has suffered a major knee injury. Sturdivant, who twice previously tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, sustained the same injury to his right knee during Saturday's closed scrimmage in Sanford Stadium, UGA said Sunday after diagnostic tests. Sturdivant will undergo surgery to repair the ACL "sometime this week" and is expected to conduct his rehabilitation at UGA, according to assistant athletic director for sports medicine Ron Courson. Sturdivant would be a fifth-year senior in the fall, and Georgia did not say if the latest injury will cost him the season or end his college football career.

Sorry to hear that. I hope he can recover and play. Hate to see what happens to some of these kids when things like this happen. Good luck buddy and hope to see you soon on the field.

I feel awful for this guy. He's spent half of his college years re-habing for acl tears. I hope he asks for a 6th year with a med scholly but I wouldnt blame him if he starts making other plans at this point. I'm not sure the NFL will touch him with 3 tears.

Well, not really. Greg Oden got his moo-la first. One and done worked well for him.


On the other, with three knees, he'll make some woman happy!
