Kirby Smart’s Georgia Bulldogs received a scare from the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday. The Gamecocks led 14-3 at halftime, but it would be all Georgia in the second half, with the Dawgs securing a 24-14 victory.

What started out as a sloppy game ended up with Georgia’s stout defense and solid running game taking over. Carson Beck had a good game, completing 27/35 passes for 269 yards.

Unfortunately, Georgia right tackle Amarius Mims left the game midway through the 2nd quarter with an ankle injury. Mims returned to the sideline during the 3rd quarter on crutches with his foot in a boot.

After the game, Kirby Smart classified the injury as “an ankle sprain.” Smart also declared that he “didn’t know the severity” of the injury.

Losing Mims would be devastating for the Bulldogs. Mims replaced Warren McClendon and received high praise this summer. The Bulldogs’ line allowed 2 sacks on Saturday after allowing just 1 through the first 2 games.

Without Mims, the team would likely turn to redshirt junior Chad Lindberg. Georgia’s next task will be a home tilt with UAB before opening SEC play up the following week.
