College Football Injuries: Georgia stays healthy, Georgia Tech loses freshman Autry

The Georgia Bulldogs escaped Jacksonville with a win and their health, but the Yellow Jackets lost freshman wide receiver Anthony Autry to a knee injury

Georgia grabbed the lead in the SEC east with a 17-9 win over Florida on Saturday while Georgia Tech lost to BYU, 41-17, and the two teams' injury reports reflected their success on the field as well.

The Bulldogs made it out of Jacksonville without any serious injuries on the docket - and returned a fully healthy Jarvis Jones, who made his way into Heisman talk with 13 tackles, three sacks and two forced fumbles.

The only injury that looked to be serious was when cornerback Sheldon Dawson sustained a blow to the head on a kickoff and laid motionless on the field for a few minutes, but the freshman from Memphis was able to walk to the sideline under his own power.

Georgia Tech, on the other hand, sustained another miserable loss in an already-dreadful season, and lost freshman receiver Anthony Autry to a knee injury that, according to his brother's Twitter account, is a torn ACL.

Autry had three receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown so far this season.
