Georgia's Lumpkin to miss season with ACL injury

Kregg Lumpkin, who was expected to be Georgia's starting running back this season, will won't play at all after tearing a ligament in his left knee.

Lumpkin, a sophomore tailback, tore his anterior cruciate ligament during a non-contact drill Monday, the Bulldogs' first day of practice. An MRI on Monday night confirmed the tear.

"I'm disappointed with what has happened to Kregg," said UGA head coach Mark Richt. "He had worked extremely hard getting ready for this season. Now he'll have to postpone it until next year. But the good news is that he can get a redshirt year and still have three years to play."

Despite missing the first two games of the 2003 season, Lumpkin was second on the team with 523 rushing yards as a freshman. He ran for the game-winning touchdown in Georgia's Capital One Bowl win over Purdue.

After a strong spring, Lumpkin was listed as the starter entering preseason practice. Those duties will likely fall to Michael Cooper, who led the Bulldogs with 673 yards rushing last season.
