Update: McConkey will not return to the field in the second half of the SEC Championship Game.


Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Ladd McConkey took a hit from three LSU defenders at once in the second quarter of the SEC Championship Game and took some time to get up, grabbing at his right leg. He was able to support his own weight and walk off with trainers to the sideline with a visible limp.

Before getting hit, he made a 22-yard reception that brought Georgia right up to the end zone. McConkey has the second-most receiving yards on the team this season behind tight end Brock Bowers. The WR connected with Stetson Bennett for 606 receiving yards and four touchdowns in the regular season, adding another two scores on the ground.

Before leaving the field, McConkey added 69 receiving yards and a touchdown in the first half of the SEC Championship Game. Georgia enters the half up 35-7.

Updates to come.
