Georgia's defense could get boost from returning starters Bacarri Rambo and Alec Ogletree

The Georgia Bulldogs have started the season 4-0 while not having two of their best defensive players. Those reinforcements look like they're on their way just in time for their showdown with the Tennessee Volunteers on Sunday, writes Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald.

Safety Bacarri Rambo and linebacker Alec Ogletree appear set to return from 4-game suspensions this weekend, though coach Mark Richt hasn't confirmed as much. They would be joining a Bulldogs defense that's been middle-of-the-road so far this season. Georgia ranks 48th against the pass and 48th against the rush.

Defensive players seemed excited to have their two starters returning:

"We have our whole defense back," cornerback Branden Smith said. "We're ready. This is the first time that we have everybody back. We've just got to cherish this opportunity and just come out there ready and just work as a team."

Richt, though, isn't saying what's in store:

"I don't want to tell everybody what we're going to do," Richt said.
