Isaiah Crowell doesn't start for Dawgs

ATLANTA -- Georgia freshman running back Isaiah Crowell was announced as a starter before the game, but didn't start for the Bulldogs Saturday.

Junior Carlton Thomas started in his place.

Crowell has battled an ankle injury that he suffered two weeks ago in the Kentucky game and missed last week's game at Georgia Tech. He practiced this week.

Crowell is dressed and has his helmet on, but didn't play on Georgia's opening drive.
