Thanks to the fact that they are, well, playing Kentucky today, Georgia likely won’t need a whole hell of a lot of help in clinching the SEC East title this weekend. Now, thanks to injuries, the Bulldogs will be facing a Wildcats team further depleted by injuries.
Head coach Joker Phillips confirmed late this week that LB/DE Ridge Wilson and safety Martavius Neloms will not play against UGA Saturday. Wilson injured his shoulder two weeks ago and did not play against Vanderbilt last weekend, while Neloms injured his ankle in the loss to the Commodores.
Wilson had started the first nine games of the season and is fifth on the team with 47 tackles. Neloms started the first 10 games and is third in tackles with 71.
Alvin Dupree is listed behind Wilson on UK’s latest depth chart, while Neloms’ backup is listed as Ashely Lowery.
