The Georgia Bulldogs have an important stretch coming up as they take on rival Georgia Tech on Saturday before an all-important matchup with LSU in the SEC title game on December 7. It looks like the team may be dealing with a significant injury leading up to it.

According to multiple reports, Georgia's leading wide receiver Lawrence Cager suffered an ankle injury at practice on Wednesday. At the moment, it's unclear the severity of the injury.

Anthony Dasher of UGASports.com was the first to report the news. Seth Emerson of The Athletic reports that the injury "doesn't look good."

Cager, a senior, is the team's leading wide receiver with 33 catches for 476 yards and four touchdowns.

Obviously, losing Cager would be a tough pill to swallow for a Georgia team that has struggled at times to move the ball through the air this year. Hopefully he's alright.

Georgia is currently No. 4 in the College Football Playoff rankings - just ahead of Alabama. The Bulldogs would presumably be part of the four-team field if they win their final two games. If they lose one, they're likely out.

We'll keep you updated on Cager's situation. Georgia takes on Georgia Tech this Saturday at Noon ET on ABC.
