Chris Burnette injury: Bulldogs' RG questionable for Saturday's game

Kevin C. Cox

The Bulldogs may face Auburn without their starting right guard. Chris Burnette is questionable for Saturday's game with a shoulder injury sustained against Ole Miss.

Georgia Bulldogs right guard Chris Burnette is questionable for Saturday's game against the Auburn Tigers. "We're just not sure," said head coach Mark Richt. Burnette was injured in the first half of the game against Ole Miss. Kenarious Gates slid over from left tackle to play in Burnette's place, and Mark Beard took over for Gates at left tackle.

Burnette's injury was a contusion to the left shoulder that had his arm in a sling after the game. The redshirt junior from LaGrange is in his second year as a starter on the offensive line.

While no team wants to play with issues on the offensive line, Auburn's pass rush isn't the most feared in the nation. They average two sacks per game and have given opposing quarterbacks enough time to pick up 46 plays of 20 or more yards. The 2-7 Tigers are giving up an average of 27.3 points per game.
