Lamont Gaillard left the game against Kentucky with an apparent knee injury.

Georgia starting center Lamont Gaillard left the game against Kentucky in the first quarter with an apparent knee injury.

Gaillard limped off the field after a run play on second-and-goal on the Bulldogs’ first drive. Trey Hill came in to replace him at center. Gaillard spent some time in the Georgia injury tent on the sideline before emerging with a heavily taped knee. He was later seen on a stationary bike on the sideline.

Gaillard has started 37 straight games for the Bulldogs, including Saturday’s matchup.

Starting outside linebacker D’Andre Walker suffered an apparent left ankle injury on Kentucky’s second drive of the game, but later returned to the game. Walker has started all eight games for Georgia this season and entered the Kentucky game with a team-leading five sacks.

Athletic trainers attended to Walker on the field for a few moments after a 6-yard run by Kentucky running back Benny Snell in the first quarter. He eventually left the field on his own power.

Brenton Cox came in to replace Walker. He had a sack on third down to end the Kentucky drive and force a punt. Walker went to the locker room later in the drive. He was back on the field early in the second quarter.
