According to Brett McMurphy, Brock Bowers could end up missing the rest of the season. A Georgia offense that has lacked firepower this season at times could be in danger of getting even worse without their star tight end. Before the injury, Bowers was able to accrue 41 catches for 561 yards.

Pete Thamel suggested Bowers could miss 4-to-6 weeks, which may mean he could return for bowl season.

In his first full season with the team, Carson Beck has struggled with consistency at times. While Beck is a phenomenal athlete who is playing to unreasonable expectations, the Bulldogs offense has suffered due to the QB play.

With Brock Bowers out, will Georgia win another national championship?

It's going to be hard for the Bulldogs to score enough points to win another title without Bowers. Most likely, the best defense in the country will be able to manage expectations the rest of regular season. The rest of their SEC schedule is not very challenging.

The only team that might (emphasize) challenge Georgia is Ole Miss. The offense for the Rebels might be talented enough to give Georgia's defense a bit of a challenge. Still, Ole Miss' defense pretty much allows any college football level offensive player to score. With that in mind, Georgia is probably safe for the regular season.

Whether or not Georgia can still beat whoever comes out of the SEC West is a different story. Let's say that Alabama comes out of the SEC West, defeating LSU in the process. The Tide's offense is so bad that it might not even be able to take advantage of a Bulldogs offense that lacks one of its biggest playmakers.

While the Bulldogs will be able to win the SEC due to a lack of competition, Georgia will have some trouble in the college football playoff. These teams will be a lot more complete. In those two games, the Bulldogs will need to have their offense playing at full strength. Should Bowers be out, Georgia faces a major challenge in that department.

Alabama's biggest lingering issue isn't Jalen Milroe at QB. Alabama is not a great team, but we cannot blame Jalen Milroe for all of its offensive issues either.. dark. Next
