Georgia wide receiver Michael Chigbu may have to step away from Football and his final year of eligibility due to undisclosed injuries, according to multiple reports.

Head coach Kirby Smart talked about Chigbu's situation on Thursday. Per ESPN:

Coach Kirby Smart said Thursday that Chigbu, who has missed recent spring practice sessions, "may be thinking about hanging it up, but he has not decided yet."

Chigbu, who would be a senior in 2018, had nine catches in 12 games, including six starts, in 2016. He had no catches in six games last season.

If Chigbu took a medical disqualification, he would remain on scholarship but would not count toward the team's NCAA limit of 85 players in 2018.

Outstanding receiver at Holy Cross, I, too, was confused why LSU didn't see anything in him.
