ATHENS — Georgia linebacker Akeem Dent's status for the Bulldogs' season-opener is in doubt due to a toe injury that required surgery.

According to a statement released by Georgia, Dent, a senior, had outpatient surgery on Tuesday morning for a toe injury he suffered in an accident off the field last week.

Georgia director of sports medicine Ron Courson says the normal recovery time for Dent's injury is four to six weeks. Dent could miss Georgia's Sept. 4 opener against Louisiana-Lafayette.

Dent is listed as a starter on the team's preseason depth chart.
