Jones suffered the injury in the Oct. 6 loss to South Carolina. The junior has been one of the Bulldogs' best players on defense this season, racking up 37 tackles, 5.5 sacks and an interception in five games.

Georgia coach Mark Richt said Sunday he doesn't expect Jones to miss Saturday's game against Kentucky.

The Bulldogs also lost a pair of reserves after surgeries Monday. Defensive end Sterling Bailey had surgery on his sprained thumb, while linebacker Brandon Burrows had surgery to repair his broken left hand.

For Kentucky, safeties Martavius Neloms and Ashley Lowery are day-to-day, according to Kentucky coach Joker Phillips. Neloms is nursing a hamstring injury while Lowery has a head injury.

The Bulldogs (5-1, 3-1) will look to rebound after their 35-7 loss to South Carolina two weeks ago. The Wildcats, meanwhile, have lost five games in a row.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Saturday in Kentucky.
