Another One Bites the Dust

Defensive end Demarcus Dobbs is the latest victim of Georgia's injury bug.

Dobbs broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot during yesterday's practice, which will require surgery. He will miss the remainder of the spring, but a full recovery is expected, according to trainer Ron Courson.

Dobbs will undergo surgery early next week, according to one source, and Courson confirmed that Dobbs should be able to start training over the summer and will be back to full speed for the start of two-a-days.

The injury leaves Georgia with just three healthy, scholarship defensive ends this spring: Justin Houston, freshman Jeremy Longo, who redshirted last season, and Kiante Tripp, who just moved to defensive end after spending all last season on offense.

And then there were three. Maybe it's something in the water?

Do you know if they are considering moving anybody from LB or DT to fill in some of those gaps?

Don't know yet, and unfortunately we won't hear more from Richt until Monday. Given that Dobbs looks to be back by summer, I doubt this changes their plans drastically, but I have to think at some point you need to revisit the idea of shifting Dewberry around.
