ATHENS — Georgia cornerback Deandre Baker, who has started the past two games, has a sprained ankle and will not play against Vanderbilt on Saturday.
Juwuan Briscoe, who went to the bench in Baker’s place after the Ole Miss game, was announced as the starter in Baker’s place.
Baker’s right foot had a white cast, and he had crutches during the Dawg Walk before Saturday’s game. There was no previous word of an injury to Baker, and he was practicing on Wednesday, so the injury occurred in recent days.
A sophomore, Baker was inserted into the game at Ole Miss, and started against Tennessee and South Carolina. He took the starting spot that had been occupied by Briscoe, who now gets a shot to get his spot back.
