Georgia loses starting LT Sturdivant for season

ATHENS, Ga. Georgia is having to recast its plans for its offensive line after losing starting left tackle Trinton Sturdivant for the season.

Coach Mark Richt said Tuesday that Sturdivant will have season-ending reconstructive surgery after injuring his left knee in the team's first preseason scrimmage Monday.

Sturdivant, from Wadesboro, N.C., started all 13 games as a freshman in 2007.

A date for the surgery has not been set.

Josh Davis, a sophomore, moved up to the first-team offense following Sturdivant's injury in the scrimmage at Sanford Stadium.
