Georgia Bulldogs: Christian Robinson Out With a Foot Injury
It appears that Christian Robinson, starting inside linebacker and tea captain, will miss probably three to four weeks with a foot injury. This is a gigantic blow to a team that is very thin at the position anyway.
Alec Ogletree had surgery on a broken bone in his foot last week, so the Dawgs are without their inside linebackers for the next couple of games.
The possible replacements will be a mix of Michael Gilliard, Amarlo Herrera, and Jeremy Sulek. AJC has also said that Ramik Wilson and Chase Vasser may move to inside linebacker for added depth.
Robinson has led the team in tackles in each of the first two games, totaling 21 with one sacks so far. He will be as missed as any defensive player not names Jarvis Jones, in my opinion. He has been at least our second best defender all year.
Georgia plays Coastal Carolina this Saturday, but then has SEC opponents Ole Miss and Mississippi State the next two weeks. While the Dawgs are superior, athletically anyway, to the first two opponents, the MSU game could cause a good number of problems as the Dawgs had problems shutting down the Mississippi State offense.
The injury puts a bit of a sour taste on a game where many Georgia fans come away pleased with the coaching and effort that we got from the team. Robinson will be helping out the younger players with assignments though and the Dawgs will get through this.
