ATHENS – It appears Thomas Flowers’ 2006 season will consist of less than a quarter.

Flowers returned Saturday from a two-game suspension and was Georgia’s starting punt returner in the Bulldogs’ 34-0 victory over UAB, but he left the game after suffering ligament damage in his left foot on his second return.

“It could require surgery, and it could cost him the year,” Coach Mark Richt said.

Flowers, who finished second in the SEC in punt returns last year, returned two kicks Saturday for 40 yards. An athletic trainer would not allow him to talk to the media in the locker room after the game.

True freshman Asher Allen replaced Flowers and returned one punt for 16 yards.
