Georgia and Notre Dame has been an absolute slugfest so far. The two sides are tied at 7 in Athens, with a few minutes until halftime. Unfortunately, Georgia may be without a key offensive lineman, in star guard Solomon Kindley.

On Georgia's touchdown drive, Kindley went down at the end of one play, and had to be helped off the field. He's being evaluated now.

Georgia wound up capping off its 13-play, 75-yard drive with a three-yard run by D'Andre Swift to tie the game. The Dawgs ate up over eight minutes of the second quarter in the process.

It may have cost Kirby Smart's team one of its best offensive linemen, though.

Per The Athletic's Seth Emerson, he was eventually carted off to the locker room. It isn't a great sign for his prospects to return to this game.

Solomon Kindley is one of the top players on the entire Georgia roster. During the preseason, he was named to Sports Illustrated's All-American second team, as well as the All-SEC second team by the conference media.

As a redshirt freshman in 2017, Kindley was a Freshman All-SEC player after making 15 starts for the Dawgs. He was a starter once again in all 14 of the team's games last fall.

Hopefully he'll make his way back onto the field soon. You hate to see games like this one marred by major injuries.
