Georgia Vs. Buffalo: Jeff Quinn Will Adjust To Losing Khalil Mack On Defense

If Buffalo is going to have any chance of defeating Georgia on Saturday, they're going to have to find a way to put pressure on Aaron Murray. But without their best starter on defense, it's going to be pretty tough task.

Khalil Mack, a senior linebacker who leads the Bulls in sacks, will be suspended for Saturday's game after being involved in a fight with a teammate. Buffalo head coach Jeff Quinn understands what the loss of Mack will mean to the defense, but he's ready to move forward with the other linebackers he has on the the roster according to DogBytesOnline:

"There's no question," Quinn said. "He's been very disruptive and one of our best players, but we've got to continue to move forward and we've got other guys like (linebackers) Willie Mosely and Kendall Roberson who have both stepped up. It's a great lesson that our kids have to understand when there's a guy who gets hurt or a guy's not able to compete in a game, our kids have to be able to step up. We've got a mentality called the `Next Bull In' and that happens. I know Georgia's faced it and we're facing it."
