Georgia State Vs. William & Mary: Panthers' defense banged up

Randy Sartin-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Georgia State Panthers defense will be at far less than 100 percent as they prepare to take the field against William & Mary on Saturday.

When the Georgia State Panthers take the field this Saturday against the William & Mary Tribe, the Panthers will be missing some key pieces on the defensive side of the ball. Georgia State will be thin at linebacker and on the defensive line as several players are banged up, according to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution report.

At linebacker, Mark Hogan, a redshirt junior, is nursing a shoulder injury, and redshirt sophomore, Jarrell Robinson, is battling a number of injuries. Both are integral parts of the Panthers' linebacker core. As a result, redshirt junior Allen McKay and true freshman Bryan Williams will be relied upon heavily at linebacker. Williams is expected to start on Saturday.

On the defensive line, freshman Joe Lockley suffered a groin injury in the Panther's loss to Richmond last Saturday. Now, a number of Georgia State underclassmen will have to step up and fill the cavernous holes at that spot. Redshirt freshman Chris Russo, and redshirt sophomores Jon Marshall Sauls and Marcus Stetzer will be called upon to back up starting defensive tackles, Terrance Woodward and Theo Agnew, this weekend.
