Hebron is the eighth player to suffer a season-ending injury for No. 9 Georgia, which plays at No. 11 LSU on Saturday.
I wouldnt even know how to compare it to another year, Richt said Thursday.
As far as season-ending injuries, I cant remember a time its been this bad.
Georgias list of eight players to suffer season-ending injuries includes: offensive guard Chris Little (foot), offensive tackles Trinton Sturdivant (knee) and Vince Vance (knee), linebackers Charles White (Achilles) and Marcus Washington (shoulder), defensive tackle Jeff Owens (knee), receiver Tony Wilson (ankle) and Hebron.
Eight? Is that what it is? Richt asked. I was wondering if somebody kept count.
When they happened you tend to say All right, I want to grieve for this young man because it is sad for him that his season ended. And then you immediately say Whos next? Whos going to fill that role and play well? Thats the mind-set Ive always had instead of saying Woe is me and all that. If you have that mind-set, it doesnt do any good.
Little to transfer
Richt announced Thursday that Little plans to transfer.
Little, a redshirt freshman, suffered a broken left foot in August, ending his hopes of playing before the season began.
Richt said he has released the 6-foot-6, 350-pound Little from his scholarship so he can transfer to any school.
Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, who has been out with a knee injury since the Sept. 27 loss to Alabama, will be in uniform against LSU.
Tight end Aron White (shoulder) will not make the trip
