KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - No. 6 Georgia and Tennessee head into their Saturday matchup at Neyland Stadium with health concerns at running back.


Tennessee's Marlin Lane had what was described as a "lower extremity injury" and Georgia's Todd Gurley sprained his left ankle in their respective teams' victories last week.


Tennessee coach Butch Jones said Monday that Lane's status was day to day. At his Sunday teleconference, Georgia coach Mark Richt used the same words to describe Gurley's situation.


Lane has gained 280 yards and four touchdowns on 45 carries. He rushed for 66 yards on five carries Saturday in a 31-24 victory over South Alabama.


Gurley has run for 450 yards and four touchdowns on 71 attempts. He had 73 yards on eight carries Saturday in a 44-41 triumph over No. 10 LSU.
