Gales, a redshirt sophomore wide receiver who played at Central High School, suffered a severe spinal injury while blocking on a third-quarter kickoff return during a 48-6 loss at Georgia on Saturday.
He underwent successful surgery Sunday at Athens Regional Medical Center and remains in the care of the doctors there.
