ATHENS — Georgia tailback Caleb King is likely to miss Saturday's game at Tennessee after sustaining a concussion and broken jaw.

King, who missed the first two games with a hamstring injury but returned to share time with starter Richard Samuel, was hurt in Saturday night's 20-13 loss to No. 4 LSU. After catching a screen pass in the fourth quarter, King was trying to spin away from one defender but was drilled by Rahim Alem while going down.

The Georgia player stayed in the game, but an exam afterward showed the injury was more serious. Coach Mark Richt said Tuesday that "it's not out of the question, but not likely" King would play against the Volunteers, mostly because he won't be cleared until he's over the concussion. He won't need surgery for the broken jaw.
