OL injuries piling up

Starting center Ben Jones will have to get a knee scoped on Sunday and will be out at least a couple weeks. But head coach Mark Richt said he expects Jones to be back for a full week of practice leading up to the Sept. 4 opener against Louisiana-Lafayette.

Still, it's the latest injury on a unit that was supposed to be the most stable on Georgia's football team.

Starting guard Cordy Glenn is out with mononucleosis. And Josh Davis has an ankle injury, which he sustained in the first scrimmage Tuesday, then tried to fight through on Saturday but finally gave up.

The Bulldogs expect everyone back for the opener. But they scrimmaged Saturday with only two projected starters, a big reason the first-team offense struggled against the second-team defense.

The only good news was that Trinton Sturdivant, coming off consecutive knee surgeries, saw his first live action of the year on Saturday.

Yikes but no panic. Injuries (minor ones) are typical this time of year - let's keep our fingers crossed.

"The Bulldogs expect everyone back for the opener"

Seth, we will read your blog regardless. So please be sensitive when writing any headlines that include both OL and injuries.

For the love of God, I hope TS gets an entire season of a$$ kicking.

Good day. That is all.

Yikes, anything else and we could be in trouble.

This sets us back a little, but it sounds like we should be back together by the time we start preparing for USC. That's the important thing.

Can we please have one fully healty season. I know at this point no one is supposed to miss anytime but even just not working together can hurt, especially on the OL.

Why does it seem as if we are constantly struggling with injuries? Isn't this a part of the strength and conditioning? Are these boys not taking their multivitamin?!

Stinking mutts are all ways getting hurt.
Enjoy a 6-6 season.

Even if we enjoy a 6-6 season, the win column will almost certainly include a win over GT, as it has done with impressive regularity over the last decade. And GT poster, you are a long way from home on this blog. Not enough news to read on the GT front?
