Georgia may have been able to pull out an overtime win over Tennessee on Saturday, but it came at a big cost. According to Bulldogs coach Mark Richt, wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley and running back Keith Marshall will both be lost for the season due to injury, making the Dawgs' SEC road -- and their quest for a National Championship appearance -- a lot harder.

Georgia has had one of the hardest schedules in the country up to this point, and the Bulldogs have a strong resume, boasting wins over South Carolina and LSU, to go with a tough loss to Clemson in Week 1. At full strength, the Bulldogs are one of the deepest and most talented teams in the country, but week-to-week, the physical play of their early season slate has taken its toll. Receiver Malcolm Mitchell was lost for the year after celebrating Todd Gurley's first touchdown of the season vs. Clemson

Scott-Wesley, the Bulldogs' second-leading receiver with 311 yards, injured his knee against the Volunteers. This was after Marshall and receiver Michael Bennett had already gone down earlier in the game. Marshall also suffered a knee injury in the game. He was starting for Todd Gurley, who was hobbled by a sprained ankle. While Georgia still has talent across the board, and this is why their depth was praised coming into the season, these are devastating injuries to a team that has given college football fans some of the most entertaining games of the early season.

As far as Bennett and Gurley, the team should know more later:

Richt has done a great job coaching this team so far, and Aaron Murray is still good enough to keep the team in any game, but they'll have to dig deep if the Bulldogs have any hope of surviving the rest of the SEC schedule.
