Bad News: Gallon Out for Season

Jack Carle and the Sentinel have the story...Chris Gallon is injured an out for the rest of the season.  He injured his knee down in Starkville and will not return this year.  I'm sure everyone sends Chris their best wishes and hope for a full recovery.

He had 54 grabs last year and 24 so far this year, with 2 TDs.  Gallon emerged last year when BG was really struggling at WR.  He didn't return to that level of effectiveness, but that might be due to improved play from Joplin and Burbrink.

Jared Cohen, who has been getting some reps and made some catches replacing Gallon @Miss State will step up to the 1WR slot.  He will be backed up by Teo Redding.

I think Cohen has shown himself to be a good player and I think he will do well.  Obviously, Gallon was the starter for a reason, though, and for that reason alone represents a setback for a team that already wasn't great at WR.
