Offensive Line Movement?

ATHENS - During Georgia's off week, Clint Boling said he had spent some time working at left tackle, moving over from the right side where he has played all season.


Josh Davis got his first start of the season against Vanderbilt, too, giving the Bulldogs yet another look on the offensive line – their fourth different starting lineup of the season.

But Tuesday, head coach Mark Richt said he isn't expecting a major shake-up for this week's contest against Florida.

"We really don't have a lot of choices, so I don't see a lot of change there," he said. "The guys that have been playing will continue to play. We may move them around a little bit, but I'm not even sure of that."

Richt said Davis, Boling, Vince Vance, Ben Jones, Chris Davis and Justin Anderson will all see action, but he wouldn't commit to the specific roles for any of them.


Georgia's depleted linebacker corps figures to get an infusion of healthy bodies this week with both Akeem Dent and Marcus Dowtin expected to return to action after extended absences due to injuries.

"(Dent) looks like he's going to be able to make the trip, but we'll see how he progresses here during the week as we run a little bit more," linebackers coach John Jancek said. "Dowtin has been cleared and is ready to go."

Dowtin missed the past two games after suffering a ligament tear in his finger that required surgery following Georgia's loss to LSU. Dowtin had earned regular work as a reserve linebacker and was third on the team in tackles at the time of the injury.

"We really missed Marcus not having him for the last two ballgames," defensive coordinator Willie Martinez said. "Marcus has been one of our playmakers – a kid that can run, athletic, smart. He really was playing really well."
