Georgia starter out for season

The worst was confirmed today morning, as Georgia announced starting left tackle Trinton Sturdivant would miss the season after suffering a knee injury at Monday’s practice.

Sturdivant, a sophomore, injured his knee in a collision with teammates during a scrimmage Monday afternoon. He had started all 13 games for the Bulldogs last season. A timetable for the surgery is still being determined, according to the university.

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

Sophomore Josh Davis filled in with the first team at left tackle for the remainder of Monday’s scrimmage, but Richt said there was a list of four or five players who could take over the job, including Kiante Tripp, who is currently projected as the starting right tackle.
