Georgia defensive end/linebacker Jeremy Longo, limited by shoulder and knee injuries the past two seasons, won’t play any more football.
Longo, a junior, will be medically disqualified “due to continuing injury issues,” UGA said Sunday.
Longo appeared in only seven games in the past two seasons, mostly on special teams –- three games in 2009 and four in 2010. He suffered a shoulder injury during spring practice 2009 and underwent knee surgery in January 2010.
Medically disqualified players remain on scholarship but do not count against the NCAA’s 85-scholarship limit.
Longo, who redshirted as a freshman in 2008, is from Fort Lauderdale. He was named to the SEC academic honor roll in 2009 and 2010 and to the SEC freshman academic honor roll in 2008.
