Georgia Bulldogs defensive lineman Abry Jones will be out for Saturday's game against the Florida Gators with an ankle injury. Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt confirmed this to Athens Banner-Herald writer Marc Weiszer. Richt will not confirm whether Jones has had ankle surgery or how long he will be out of action.

The 6'3, 308-pound lineman has recorded a total of 17 tackles, six of them solo through six games. Last year against the Gators, Jones recorded two solo tackles and a sack. Jones has not been as effective on the pass rush this season, recording no sacks through six games as compared to four in 14 games last season. He also pressured the quarterback 20 times and forced a fumble during his junior year.

The Bulldogs are scheduled to play the Gators on Saturday at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. The game will be televised live on CBS with kickoff scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
