No. 5 Georgia and No. 8 Florida will square off in the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party in Jacksonville on Saturday, and the Bulldogs defense is going to be beat up. Starting defensive lineman Jordan Davis and veteran Julian Rochester will miss the game due to injuries, according to a report from 247Sports.

Davis suffered an elbow injury in the 14-3 win over Kentucky last weekend and will miss “multiple weeks,” according to the report. The 6-foot-6, 330-pound junior nose tackle is the anchor of the defensive line and frees up the rest of the Bulldogs defense to swarm to the football. He only has 13 tackles this season, but stats don’t tell the full story. He was voted a preseason first-team All-SEC defensive linemen by the conference’s coaches, who clearly respect his ability to clog up the middle.
