The offensive line rotation that Georgia employed in the second half against Kentucky last week will likely make an appearance again in this week's game against Florida. Against the Wildcats, starting left guard Dallas Lee hurt his ankle, Mark Richt told the Athens Banner-Herald. The injury to Lee prompted Richt to move Kenarious Gates from left tackle to guard. Lee was in a practice jersey Tuesday, but Georgia will keep the rotation going just in case another option is needed.

"This week will be a competition," offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said. "Dallas has got to get healthy, but I think it’s good that Mark got a lot of experience last week."

Georgia racked up 504 yards against Kentucky, but a majority of those came in the first half. Still, Gates sounded comfortable with the rotation as it stands.

"This week we’ve got a little rotation going," Gates said. "I’m practicing at left tackle and left guard, as well. You never know what the situation might be, so we’re planning a little rotation."
