Dawgs OL may be thin for Kentucky

The Georgia offensive line took another hit this week
as junior guard Chester Adams missed practice Wednesday after
re-aggravating his ankle sprain Tuesday in practice.

Adams re-injured his ankle against Florida Saturday when he took a blow to the
ankle in the game and after practice Tuesday it flared up again. Georgia head
coach Mark Richt thinks Adams is now doubtful for the Kentucky
game this week.


"Right now Chester Adams' ankle got tweaked
and I am not sure if he will even make the trip," said Richt of Adam's
status for Saturday. "Michael Turner will go in his place if that is the
case."


The injury to Adams in another blow to the embattled offensive
line that lost junior guard
Zeb McKinzey for the season with
a shoulder injury in fall camp, has battled through suspensions to
Daniel Inman and Ian Smith in the first two games of the
season, and worked through injuries to Michael Turner and Adams.


"They are tired and beat up because of our lack
of depth. They have taken so many reps in practice. When you have two lines
that can roll, you take some pressure off of these guys and quite frankly we
have been mixing and matching and not really rolling two units," said
Richt regarding the lack of depth. "It has been wearing them down and
there is no doubt about it."
