Georgia wide receiver Michael Chigbu, who during the spring indicated he might give up football because of injuries, is not listed in the Bulldogs’ 2018 media guide.

The 6-foot-2, 213-pound Chigbu, once a highly-rated prospect who would be a senior this season, has battled shoulder and knee injuries the last two years.

Head coach Kirby Smart acknowledged in April that Chigbu “may be thinking about hanging it up.”

Chigbu was a three-star member of the Bulldogs’ 2015 recruiting class, rated as the No. 18 player at any position in the state of Louisiana.

As a sophomore at Georgia, Chigbu enjoyed his best season by starting seven of the nine games in which he played and making nine receptions for 88 yards.

Chigbu did not catch a pass last season and has 13 receptions and 116 receiving yards for his career.

Georgia sophomore defensive back Deangelo Gibbs is listed on the roster after missing the last half of the 2017 regular season, including the national championship game because of unspecified issues.

Gibbs also missed and wasn’t enrolled in classes, although it was reported in May that he attended summer school.
