Seventh-ranked Georgia is without three of its top defensive players plus a defensive reserve, due to suspensions, for the Southeastern Conference opener against Missouri.
All-America safety Bacarri Rambo, linebacker Alec Ogletree and cornerback Sanders Commings were not on the travel roster and did not make the trip for Saturday night's game. Backup linebacker Chase Vasser also was left behind.
Rambo's high school coach said in the spring that he expected to receive a four-game suspension after a second positive test for marijuana, per school policy. Ogletree is reportedly being punished for violating team rules.
Commings received a two-game suspension following a January arrest on a domestic violence charge. Vasser was suspended for the first two games following a DUI arrest.
