ATHENS, Ga. - Georgia is having to recast its plans for its offensive line after losing starting left tackle Trinton Sturdivant for the season.
Coach Mark Richt said Tuesday Sturdivant will have season-ending reconstructive surgery after suffering an injury to his left knee in the team's first preseason scrimmage on Monday.
Sturdivant, from Wadesboro, N.C., started all 13 games as a true freshman in 2007.
A date for the surgery has not been set.
Josh Davis, a sophomore, moved up to the first-team offense following Sturdivant's injury in the scrimmage at Sanford Stadium.
