Florida vs. Georgia: Who Knows?

While the uncertainty Florida is feeling around the shoulder health of its star quarterback is mostly over-cautious, Georgia has some legitimate uncertainty to handle before the Bulldogs take the field against the Gators on Saturday. Head coach Mark Richt may have to start freshman tailback Caleb King, stripping him of his redshirt, to compensate for the loss of senior tailback Thomas Brown. Except that Richt is not yet sure of Brown's status, and would rather keep King redshirted than play him now. Brown injured his collarbone three weeks ago against Ole Miss and may be out until the Nov. 10 matchup with Auburn, if not longer.

Georgia: Lumpkin Out Of Luck

Georgia running back Kregg Lumpkin is no stranger to injury, but this one has to hurt more than all the rest. After missing some time earlier in the season with a broken thumb, the senior sustained a game-ending knee injury on Saturday, an injury serious enough to likely hand Lumpkin a cruelly painful end to his collegiate career.

Georgia: One More Big Loss

Georgia was rocked by Tennessee 35-14 on Saturday, but the bigger loss came after the fact, when the Bulldogs reported that senior running back Thomas Brown could miss more than a month of playing time with a broken collarbone. The 5-foot-8, 200-pound senior might have suffered the injury against Tennessee, or it might have been a week earlier, as head coach Mark RIcht said that Brown may very well have broken the bone a week ago, playing against Mississippi. As Georgia's second-leading rusher, Brown has started all six games for the Bulldogs, earning 413 yards on 76 carries with six touchdowns. He also has two receiving touchdowns on the year.

South Carolina: Pre-game Injury Report

South Carolina is is going to need all the help they can get when they head to Athens to take on No. 11 Georgia this afternoon, but the Gamecocks have quite a few players who will not be offering their services when 5:45 rolls around. Among the list of those who are out: Offensive guard Kevin Young (ankle), linebacker Yvan Banang (knee) running back Bobby Wallace (collarbone) and quarterback Chris Smelley (shoulder). Linebacker Melvin Ingram is probable, but strong safety Emanuel Cook and linebacker Cody Wells are both questionable. On the Georgia side, only running back Kregg Lumpkin is out, still nursing that broken thumb.

Georgia: Back Down to Two

Georgia's coaching staff had some backfield decisions to make going into their season opener against Oklahoma State, but after the 35-14 win, some of those decisions have been made for them. The three tailbacks were vying for time and the starting spot have been reduced to two, as senior Kregg Lumpkin is out indefinitely with a broken thumb on his right hand.
