The severity of the injury has not yet been determined.

Georgia nose tackle John Jenkins sat out of the Bulldogs' first bowl practice Wednesday due to a concussion, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Jenkins, who has started 13 games for Georgia and recorded 50 tackles, 11 tackles for loss and nine sacks this season, participated in media interviews for the Capital One Bowl on Wednesday but did not mention an injury, according to the report. The severity of the 6'3, 360-pound senior's injury was not immediately known and whether he plays in the Capital One Bowl remains to be determined. Details of the injury emerged after reporters were handed an injury report at the end of practice.

The Bulldogs do have time for Jenkins to recover, though. The Capital One Bowl is scheduled for Jan. 1 at 1 p.m. Georgia will face Nebraska in Orlando, Fla., at the Florida Citrus Bowl. The game will be televised nationally by ABC.
