Georgia seeks fixes following 2 straight losses

Posted: Updated:

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - There's a new entry on Georgia's lengthy injury list:
    
Bruised ego.
    
In only three weeks, Georgia has dropped from No. 6 to being unranked in The Associated Press Top 25. The stunned Bulldogs have an off week to assess the damage, attempt to correct mistakes and hope some injured players can heal before their Nov. 2 game against Florida.
    
Injuries to the Bulldogs' top two running backs and three of their top receivers proved too much to overcome in back-to-back losses to Missouri and Vanderbilt. Star tailback Todd Gurley and receiver Michael Bennett may return against the Gators.
    
Coach Mark Richt says he still clings to the dream of a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game. The Bulldogs have not played like a championship contender in their brutal October.
