Georgia head coach Kirby Smart spoke with reporters on Tuesday and talked about star tight end Brock Bowers who underwent tightrope surgery after suffering a high ankle sprain vs. Vanderbilt last weekend.

Smart explained that there is no timeline for his return and said that Bowers is in good spirits with everything going on. Per SDS:

“Brock will take on that same rehab process, and his surgeon and Ron (Courson) will work together on that to get him back. It won’t be done any different,” Smart said. “The key is, we’re trying to get him back healthy. There is no timeline for when he comes back to play. The timeline is when he’s healthy, and I don’t think you could put a timeline on it because historically there’s been guys that came back really fast and guys that have come back really slow. Each one is different.”

Lost in injury news can be the impact it has on the emotions of a player. When asked about how Bowers is doing, Smart gave an encouraging answer.

“Brock Bowers is great. Brock Bowers is rock solid,” Smart said. “He wanted to get thing done as soon as he found out it had to be done. We were able to expedite that process. He’s great, he looked everybody in the eyes today and wishing he could be out there. He’s in great spirits, he’s got a great family, he’s got great heart. He’s a warrior so he’ll handle it the right way.”
