Vance will need reconstructive knee surgery and should recover for the 2009 season, coach Mark Richt said Sunday. Vance started in No. 10 Georgia's 26-14 win over Tennessee on Sunday and was hurt in the second quarter.
The junior was the only upperclassman on the offensive line. Georgia could start three freshmen on the line against No. 22 Vanderbilt: center Ben Jones, guard Cordy Glenn and right tackle Justin Anderson.
Sophomore Clint Boling replaced Vance against Tennessee.
Georgia lost left tackle Trinton Sturdivant to a season-ending knee injury before the first game.
Richt said Kiante Tripp, who opened the season as the starter at left takle before moving to tight end, will return to tackle.
