ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Garrison Smith and Jordan Jenkins say they aren't concerned that Georgia's defense lacks experience and has several key players injured.


Smith, a senior defensive end, and Jenkins, a sophomore linebacker, believe the No. 5 Bulldogs will overcome the loss of seven defenders who left for the NFL.


After all, when Georgia opens the season Aug. 31 at No. 8 Clemson, somebody has to step up and replace first-round picks like linebackers Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree.


Injuries, though, have affected three starters in the secondary, and even junior cornerback Damian Swann, the undisputed leader of the defensive backfield, has missed some reps recently.


The Bulldogs also will be without starting strong safety Josh Harvey-Clemons, a sophomore whom coach Mark Richt suspended one game for violating unspecified team rules.
