Georgia Tech safety Fred Holton, his coaches and trainers had hoped that his tendon injury would heal and permit him to play. It appears, though, that time and hope may have run out for the 2012 season.
Season-ending surgery is an increasingly likely option to repair the posterior tibialis tendon in his lower left leg. After he tore it in an preseason scrimmage in August, trainers have been rehabbing the injury in hopes that it would heal and permit Holton to play, but the recovery has been slow and Holton has yet to see the field through seven games.
Tech sports medicine director Jay Shoop said coaches and medical staff are close to a point where a decision needs to be made about surgery.
It certainly is a possibility, probably a probability, Shoop said.

Just in case Jim gets a wild hair and shuts us down abruptly, in the words of the cook on the Edmund Fitzgerald, "Fellas it's bin good t'know ya!"
Has anyone ever actually seen this Holton kid? I'm starting to wonder if CPJ just made him up.
Sucks for the kid, hopefully he can heal up and play next year. Must have terrible luck.

Bobby Godd never, not once, ever blamed his boys for a loss. It was always on his shoulders, and his shoulders alone. That is greatness. This is not. --YukonWreck

Certainly this is a board and everyone is entitled to their opinion. It is just that mine is right and yours is wrong. --91Wreck
Holton's situation kind of reminds me of several years ago when one of our line backers, Jackson, got hurt (TJ Barnes fell on him) in practice after his freshman year (in which he was a starter) and he never played again--hope that this is not the case, but players not returning from an injury happen fairly often
