Kirby Smart Provides Injury Update on Jalen Carter

Kirby Smart provided an update on his starting defensive tackle Jalen Carter, who left Satruday's game with a knee injury after being hit low by a Missouri offensive lineman.

The University of Georgia is currently the No. 2 ranked football team in college football following back-to-back "strugglesome" wins against the Kent State Golden Flashes and the Missouri Tigers. 

Kirby Smart provided an update on his starting defensive tackle Jalen Carter, who left Saturday's game with a knee injury after being hit low by a Missouri offensive lineman. 

Carter was already rehabbing an ankle injury that kept him out of the better part of the previous two games. 

"I talked to the official during the play, he felt comfortable about what the play was. I talked to the referee before the game because they have a lot of that. Jalen is going to be a week or two, we don't know if it's an MCL like we thought, but it's not looking good for this week." 

Kirby was then asked if he thought the play was a chop-block: 

"It doesn't really matter what I think of the block. What does it really matter? It matters what the referee thinks and what the review thinks."
