ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia receiver Kris Durham will miss the upcoming season recovering from shoulder surgery.

Durham tore the labrum in his left shoulder during spring practice, which ends Saturday with the annual G-Day scrimmage. He will take a redshirt year and return as a senior in 2010.

"He wants to make sure his senior year is a good, strong, healthy one," coach Mark Richt said. "It's really a sixth-month recovery time before you can go and train at full speed. That would be a tight window to be ready."

Durham started four games last season and had 13 receptions for 199 yards. He had been expected to contend for a starting job opposite A.J. Green after the graduation of Mohamed Massaquoi.
