4 Georgia starters on defense out for SEC opener at Missouri due to suspension

Posted: Updated:

According to a report from ESPN.com, Georgia head coach Mark Richt will travel to Columbia, Missouri to take on the Tigers without four starters on defense.

Safety Bacarri Rambo, cornerback Sanders Commings and linebackers Chase Vasser and Alec Ogletree will all be missing from the lineup in the Bulldog's SEC opener due to suspension.

Vasser (DUI) and Commings (Domestic Violence) were expected to miss Saturday's SEC opener because of their two-game suspensions they received for arrests during the off-season, but Richt has not made it clear what Rambo's and Ogletree's statuses with the team is at this point.  But all signs are pointing to their absence on Saturday.

Rambo and Ogletree both failed university-administered drug tests this spring, the second for Ogletree.
