The injury hits just keep on coming for Georgia.

The Bulldogs were able to escape Knoxville with an overtime win over Tennessee, but not without a steep price. Mark Richt announced that both running back Keith Marshall and wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley will miss the rest of the season due to torn ACLs.

As if that's not enough, receiver Michael Bennett will need arthroscopic surgery on his knee to determine the extent of the injury he suffered on Saturday. He'll be out against Missouri this week, and could be out longer than that.

"We've just got to dig deep and give some other guys opportunity, get them repped up and make some plays," Richt told reporters.

The Bulldogs have no other choice.

Georgia had already lost receiver Malcolm Mitchell for the season due to a torn ACL in the first game of the season, and running back Todd Gurley missed the Tennessee game due to an ankle injury.

Then there's punter Collin Barber who suffered a concussion, and safeties Tray Matthews and Connor Norman missed the Tennessee game as well with injuries of their own.

At the rate things are going Aaron Murray may be throwing passes to himself soon.
