Georgia football finally takes the field today as the Dawgs meet Oregon in Atlanta for one of the two Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games.

The Dawgs are No. 3 in the country while the Ducks are No.11, so it’ll be a top-15 matchup between two programs that want to beat each other. Both fanbases have been going at each other’s throats for weeks, and now it’s time to let the football do the talking.

Georgia is no longer thinking about how they are the defending national champions. Instead, it’s about wanting to beat the Ducks. As for Oregon, it would be a massive win for first-time head coach Dan Lanning if they were to beat Georgia.

Head coach Kirby Smart has won all six of his opening matchups, and today should be his seventh as long as the Dawgs are ready like they should be.

Georgia Bulldogs Injury Report vs. Oregon Ducks for Week 1:

The Dawgs are pretty healthy for this opening game against the Ducks. While Georgia will not have Arian Smith and Andrew Paul, the rest of those on the injured list are either questionable or probable.

Smith is out with an ankle injury, and Paul tore his ACL during Fall Camp. As for Kendall Milton, Kearis Jackson, Earnest Greene, Tykee Smith, and the rest of those who have gotten banged up or coming back from injury should be ready for Oregon.

Some players may not see much playing time if they aren’t ready to go, but Georgia should be happy where it is health-wise going into this first game of 2022.
