07:23 AM ET 10.07 | Over the weekend, an already banged-up Bulldogs backfield took another hit. [Mark Richt] settled on one word to describe the way it left him feeling. "Heartbreaking." The Bulldogs lost four players to injury during Saturday night's 34-31 overtime win over Tennessee in Knoxville. A battery of medical tests on Sunday confirmed the worst possible news for two of them. Tailback Keith Marshall and wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley suffered torn anterior cruciate ligament knee injuries and are out for the season. ... Meanwhile, the status of tailback Todd Gurley (ankle) and safeties Tray Matthews (hamstring) and Connor Norman (concussion) -- three players who had to sit out against Tennessee -- remains "day-to-day." Richt said the Bulldogs will not place any more urgency on getting Gurley back this week.

Those Volunteers play for keeps. Hope the injured players make full recoveries.

Next guy up. Isn't depth supposed to be the difference between the elite CFB teams and the mid majors?

Interesting how the CBS announcers noted Marshall's injury history before the game and wondered whether he could handle a full workload at RB without getting re-injured.

That was a GREAT game on Sat.
Both teams can be proud; Tenn. looked like the program is finally coming back.

there's a difference between depth and losing 6 of your best 8 playmakers

Tennesee looked like they might be doing a little dirty work. Of course, Richt barely pulled this win out. There was no way, even with the injuries that Tennessee should have been that close.Basically, the game was served up, when the guy fumbled for a touchback in the OT first drive.

Sobering (and correct) insight.

I watched the game closely. I saw the plays after which the UGA players retired from the field. Tennessee players did nothing dirty. It was just bad breaks for the Bulldogs.

Why don't you question UGA's conditioning? The integrity of their program? The legitimacy of their players' births? You soulless POS.

Wow, after years of ripping Alabama, you get mad over one thing? Tennessee is exactly where they deserve to be. At the bottom of the SEC. And I'm loving every minute of it. All I have to do is remember Phil Fulmer saying, "I'll bury Alabama." to enjoy the hell out of what is going on. That, plus the crap you post at every chance you get.

If all those players are still out...Mizzou will beat them next week

I agree and looks like they will be out.

October 7, 2013  10:28 AM ET

We mainly need gurley back....and game is in Athens so that's good.

October 7, 2013  10:29 AM ET

And it was a great effort by the vols

Yes that's true

One of the sad but true realities of this game is that players will get injured. We should always remember that when the media starts there pre-season rankings of teams and players. Good luck to your guys going forward.

Yeah, the Vols sure gave the Ducks a great game a few weeks ago. By the way, isn't all injuries to "all college football teams heartbreaking"?? Don't fans ever get tried of making excuses about injuries? Come on fans, injuries happen to "all" teams.
