ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -Georgia defensive tackle Jeff Owens left the top-ranked Bulldogs' game Saturday against Georgia Southern because of a right knee injury.
Owens was supported by two Georgia trainers as he walked off the field with 7:15 left in the first quarter. Georgia announced Owens would not return to the game. No details of the injury were immediately available.
Owens took off his shoulder pads and watched the first half from a trainer's table on the sideline.
Owens, a senior, started all 13 games last season and had 27 tackles. The loss of Owens cut into Georgia's depth on its defensive front. Backup Kade Weston was held out of the game with a sprained knee.
