John Jenkins Injury: Bulldogs NT misses practice with ankle injury

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia will have senior nose tackle John Jenkins when they face Ole Miss on Saturday, good news for a defensive line already missing key veterans.

Nose tackle John Jenkins, a key member of the Georgia Bulldogs defensive line, did not practice on Wednesday. Dog Bytes Online reports that the senior sat out with a sprained left ankle, but that he is expected to play on Saturday in Georgia's game against the Ole Miss Rebels.

Jenkins has yet to record a sack on the season, but according to College Football Stats he is credited with five quarterback hurries and one tackle for a loss. He also has 32 solo tackles, the second highest total on the team behind only Shawn Williams. His strongest performance of the year was Week 6 against the South Carolina Gamecocks, where he collected eight tackles and blocked a field goal.

The Bulldogs defensive line is already missing senior Abry Jones, whose regular season ended with ankle surgery late in October. Georgia's defense is giving up an average of 22.3 points per game, ranking them 35th among FBS schools.
