ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia running back Caleb King, who was
beaten out for the starting job by Richard Samuel, will likely miss
the No. 13 Bulldogs' season opener at ninth-ranked Oklahoma State
because of a lingering hamstring injury.

King entered preseason drills as the No. 1 tailback, but he was
bothered by his ailing hamstring and fell behind both Samuel and
redshirt freshman Carlton Thomas on the depth chart.

Coach Mark Richt also announced after Wednesday's practice that
defensive end Kiante Tripp will likely stay at home due to a
shoulder "stinger." The Bulldogs are hopeful that both players
will be able to play in the home opener Sept. 12 against South
Carolina.

Georgia held the first of two dress rehearsals at Sanford
Stadium, practicing for 90 minutes with deafening crowd noise
pumping from the speakers. Richt said the workout "was not super
sharp."
