UGA middle linebacker Jamon Dumas-Johnson suffered a fractured arm Saturday in a 30-21 win over Missouri and will be out for some time.
The top backups for Johnson are Lamar County’s own CJ Allen and his roommate, freshman Raylen Wilson. Allen got increased playing time Saturday after Dumas-Johnson’s injury and forced an errant pass from Tiger quarterback Brady Cook that was intercepted by defensive lineman Nazir Stackhouse. The long return was called back but the pick iced the Bulldogs’ win over the Tigers.
#10 Ole Miss will be in Athens this week for a 7 p.m. kick on the ESPN national broadcast. The network’s ever-popular Gameday crew will also be in the classic city.
The stakes will be high, the stadium lights will be bright and our own CJ Allen may get the start.
It’s a huge opportunity for Allen who, at this time last year, was preparing to lead his Trojan team into the state playoffs.
