"They've shown the poise and discipline to bounce back," Fulmer said.
As for the Bulldogs, Fulmer sees a difficult challenge ahead on all fronts, the least of which is playing on the road for the first time this season.
"Georgia is a very impressive football team in all phases," Fulmer said.
However, defensive line coach Dan Brooks says the key to stopping the Bulldogs offense is shutting down the run.
It may be tougher to do that if defensive end Parys Haralson isn't in the line-up. Haralson was in pads on Tuesday, but he does have a knee bruise that knocked him out of the Auburn game.
Arron Sears didn't practice on Tuesday because of an injury, too. Fulmer says the team is taking a "wait and see" approach with Sears. Should Sears not be in the starting rotation against Georgia, Albert Toeaina would start at right tackle.
Justin Reed was also on crutches due to a knee injury. If he isn't available for the weekend, Tennessee would have a tight end by committee. Chris Brown, Brad Cottam, and Victor McClure could all see action.
Finally, in an attempt to bolster the strength and depth of the secondary, the coaching staff has decided to move Corey Larkins from running back to nickel back.
