Sturdivant Update

I'll have plenty more on the scrimmage today include stats, quotes and depth chart updates, but for now, let's get the ugly news of the day out of the way.

Yes, left tackle Trinton Sturdivant hurt his knee during the afternoon's scrimmage. Richt said he did not know the severity of the situation at this point, but reading between the lines a little, it didn't sound good.

"Trinton hurt his knee. I don't know for sure yet how bad, but it swelled up pretty good," Richt said.

Trainer Ron Courson went to the hospital with Sturdivant for x-rays.

In response to the question of whether it was a season-ender, Richt said, "you always fear that, but until we know, I don't want to say anything. ... I know how things fly out, but it's not going to come from me."

Richt said the injury occured on a pass-rush situation, where Stafford stepped up in the pocket to avoid pressure and the two tackles and two DEs collided in the middle.

"It makes you sick," Richt said. "It's just sad to see a guy get hurt like that."

Richt said Josh Davis played the rest of the snaps at left tackle with the first team, and mentioned Clint Boling and Cordy Glenn as other possible replacements for Sturdivant, although Boling is suspended for the first game of the season after an off-field incident during the offseason.

Richt also didn't rule out moving Kiante Tripp from right to left tackle, but said it was too early to make any significant decisions on that.

don't the linemen wear big knee braces? How would this happen?

I didn't...your point? I want to know why a leg brace wouldn't protect someone from an acl injury. I guess his leg got twisted?

It always sucks when a any athelete goes down before they even have a chance to play in the season...

We were looking forward to getting a little revenge on a healthy GA team on Nov 1st... of course the Gators have had a number of injuries, too.

Not nice to see anyone get hurt, but I guess karma's a b**** when you chop-block people and injure them yourself...

did none of you idiots actually read what hale posted? it was a pass play and the d-ends and o-tackles collided behind the passer. the braces help but won't prevent all twisting - especially when 600lbs of offensive & defensive line falls on you. and yeah, karma's a bitch, dickhead, remember that for your team.
