Georgia loses Ware to bruised lung

ATLANTA (AP) -- Freshman tailback Danny Ware will miss at least one game for No. 3 Georgia after tests showed he suffered a bruised lung against South Carolina.

Coach Mark Richt said Sunday that while Ware won't be able to play next week against Marshall, he should be ready for LSU on Oct. 2.

Ware rushed for 135 yards and three touchdowns in Georgia's season-opening win over Georgia Southern, but was held out Saturday after he coughed up blood on the sideline in the second quarter of the Bulldogs' 20-16 win.

With Ware limited to eight carries for 41 yards, Michael Cooper and Tyson Browning combined for 115 yards rushing. Another option at tailback against Marshall is Tony Milton, who spent the last week working at fullback. Fullback Jeremy Thomas returns from a two-game suspension this week, allowing Milton to move back to tailback.

Ware moved into the starting role after Kregg Lumpkin was lost for the season to a knee injury on the first day of practice.

Richt has options, but no definite answer, at tailback. As for a starter, Richt said, ``I don't know. That's a good question. Right off the top of my head, I couldn't tell you.''

Ware will be held out of any exercise while the bruised lung heals, so he may need some time to work back into playing form when he is cleared by doctors.

Georgia (2-0) has an off week after the Marshall game.

Cooper, who led Georgia in rushing in 2003, rushed for 61 yards on 13 carries Saturday. Browning added 54 yards on 11 carries. Another option is freshman Thomas Brown, who missed the South Carolina game with a hamstring injury.
Yes, he is the starter. But we still have Michael Cooper, Tyson Browning and Thomas Brown so we'll be fine.
