More bad news for Richt, Georgia

Mark Richt just can't catch a break.

The Georgia head coach is overseeing an 0-2 football team and he's facing the increasing likelihood that this is his last season in Athens if his Bulldogs are unable to turn it around and salvage the 2011 campaign.

And to make matters worse, the injury bug just keeps on biting.

The 'Dawgs will be without both starting inside linebackers for awhile after junior Christian Robinson injured his left foot in Saturday's 45-42 loss to South Carolina. According to Richt, Robinson will be out at least a couple of games. Georgia was already without sophomore Alec Ogletree, one of the team's best defensive players who broke his foot in the opener against Boise State and won't return until sometime in October.

Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham will now have two inexperienced players at inside linebacker as he tries to improve his defense before the season spirals out of control.

True freshman Amarlo Herrera took Ogletree's place in the lineup against South Carolina, while senior walk-on Jeremy Sulek and junior Mike Gilliard also played. Robinson's injury will give all three players extra reps, and true freshmen Ramik Wilson and Chase Vasser could also move over from outside linebacker.

Georgia plays Coastal Carolina this Saturday before travelling to Ole Miss the next week to resume conference play.
