ATHENS, Ga. — One week into practice, Georgia is facing depth problems at defensive tackle after Ken…

"Which isn't a lot," Richt said. "I'm not comfortable with the situation."
Kedric Golston and Gerald Anderson will start for Georgia, but Marquis Elmore, Ray Gant and Dale Dixson are the only backups now. Gant, the only one of that trio with any worthwhile experience, can't practice this spring due to a shoulder injury.
The Bulldogs will consider a position change to help add depth, but there are no ideal candidates, Richt said. Georgia recently moved Darrius Swain from defensive tackle to offensive guard. He could move back, but he has done well on the offensive line and he never flourished on the defensive line. None of the team's incoming freshmen are candidates for a move, Richt said.
"I really don't know the answer," he said. "Right now you're just trying to get through spring, but you've got to look at it and figure a way to cross train some guys."
Cordele native Preston Pannell, safety Derrick Holloway, running back Ronnie Powell and offensive linemen Reggie Weeks and Tommy Gainous have already taken medical disqualifications. Under the system, the players are allowed to remain on scholarship but do not count against Georgia's maximum number of 85. They can not play college football again.
