Head coach Mark Richt said the team would have to wait for the results of an MRI before knowing the severity of the injury, but Sturdivant was wearing a cast down the length of his leg and was on crutches after the game.
"We're not going to jump to any conclusions right this second," Richt said. "He's keeping his spirits up and is optimistic that it's not a real severe thing. An MRI will basically tell the story, but he's not in pain at all that I could see."
Georgia was in the midst of a promising drive prior to the injury, but quarterback Joe Cox was sacked on the next play after senior Vince Vance replaced Sturdivant, and the Bulldogs settled for a long field goal from Blair Walsh.
After the game, Richt said the injury didn't stymie the drive and that Sturdivant's loss wasn't responsible for the second-half problems for the offense.
"When it happened, we just said, ‘Get in the game, Vince, and let's go,'" Richt said. "We didn't think that much about that part of it as much as we did when the game was over."
