UGA Struggling To Start The Season

ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia will try to recover from its first 0-2
start in 15 years after losing a starting linebacker for the second
straight week.

Coach Mark Richt says junior Christian Robinson, who hurt his
foot Saturday in a 45-42 loss to then-No. 12 South Carolina, will
miss at least two games. In last week's loss to Boise State,
Georgia lost starter Alec Ogletree for four to six weeks with a
broken foot.

Robinson and Ogletree began the season as a starting inside
linebacker.

Georgia is thin at linebacker. Freshman Amarlo Herrera started
at Ogletree's spot. Options to replace Robinson include Jeremy
Sulek, a senior walk-on, and junior Mike Gillard.

Georgia -- 0-2 for the first time since 1996, when it finished
5-6 -- plays Coastal Carolina this week.
