The Georgia Bulldogs lost key players in their victory against Ole Miss Saturday, including wide receiver Marlon Bronw. But that wasn't before he caught three passes for 113 yards and a touchdown, his fourth career 100-yard game.

Brown caught a 66-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Murray in the game, but was injured on a 30-yard reception in the third quarter. He limped off the field after being treated by the UGA training staff.

Junior right guard Chris Burnette suffered a left shoulder contusion in the first half and didn't return to the game. It caused quite the shift on the Dawgs' offensive line. They moved left guard Dallas Lee to right guard and moved left tackle Kenarious Gates to left guard. Mark Beard was placed at left tackle.

There were no details released on the injuries.

With the win, UGA is one step closer to heading to the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta. The Bulldogs head to Auburn next week.
