ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia wide receiver Sean Bailey will miss
the Sugar Bowl after injuring his right knee during practice.
Bailey injured the knee Tuesday night and was evaluated by the
school's sports medicine staff Wednesday, the school reported. An
MRI confirmed a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Reconstructive surgery is scheduled for January, said Ron
Courson, Georgia's director of sports medicine.
Bailey, who caught two touchdown passes in Georgia's SEC
championship game victory over LSU, had 16 catches for 364 yards
and four touchdown receptions this season.
No. 8 Georgia meets No. 11 West Virginia in the Nokia Sugar Bowl in
Atlanta on Jan. 2.
