Georgia Bulldogs safety Bacarri Rambo and linebacker Alec Ogletree have been suspended since the start of the season, but they have been listed as starters on the teams depth chart this week heading into their game against the Tennessee Volunteers. Head coach Mark Richt has kept quiet to why these two starters were suspended.

Head coach Mark Richt would not confirm that the two players would be in the lineup. However according to the Athens Banner-Herald, wide receiver Michael Bennett mentioned that Ogletree and Rambo will be back:

"Having those two guys back is going to be huge," Bennett said. "They're great players and I'm excited about it."

Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham does not feel that that Ogletree or Rambo will be behind or rusty when they play on Saturday:

"I think everyone's done a pretty good job with it," he said. "We'll continue to work guys and develop guys and play the best guys that are available."

Getting both of these starters back heading into the meat of SEC East play is huge, as Georgia is vying to claim their second straight divisional crown.
