If tweets from several Georgia players indicate the truth, the Bulldogs will face Missouri on Saturday without offensive tackle Watts Dantzler, linebackers Alec Ogletree and Chase Vasser and safety Bacarri Rambo.
Dantzler posted a tweet Friday morning (that has since been deleted) wishing his teammates well as they traveled to Columbia, Mo.
RT @wattsdantzler: Wish I could be with the boys this weekend. Gotta get healthy first. I believe that God has a plan for everything

Dantzler’s absence would leave Georgia to count on true freshman John Theus at right tackle. He started last week’s opener against Buffalo but left the game early because of a sprained right ankle. Theus returned to practice on Thursday.
Georgia linebacker Cornelius Washington posted this message Friday afternoon, indicating the absence of Ogletree, Rambo and Vasser.

Of course, this doesn’t represent an official confirmation from Georgia. But the school has chosen not to confirm the status of the players mentioned above.
