The Georgia Bulldogs will be without starter Chase Vasser for the remainder of the season, the school announced. Vasser, the fourth starter the Bulldogs have lost, tore a labrum in his left shoulder in Georgia's win over Kentucky. Vasser will undergo surgery to repair the shoulder next week.
The outside linebacker had 19 tackles, including four for a loss, in five games. That's well ahead of his totals from sophomore year, when he managed 16 tackles in 12 games. Though he has yet to record a sack, Vasser is credited with hurrying the quarterback five times, according to CFB Stats. Freshman Josh Harvey-Clemons has been filling in on defense for Vasser.
Wide receivers Marlon Brown and Michael Bennett were previously taken out by season-ending knee injuries, and the Bulldogs lost defensive end Abry Jones to ankle surgery. The injuries haven't done too much to slow down the Bulldogs, who are 9-1 and have taken the SEC East.
