FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Falcons All-Pro Vic Beasley has a hamstring strain and is ruled out for this week's game at Detroit, and could be sidelined even longer. Atlanta coach Dan Quinn declined to say if last year's NFL sacks leader will be out longer than this week. Quinn did say Monday that it's too early to tell if right tackle Ryan Schraeder will be sidelined against the Lions with a concussion. He and Beasley did not return after getting injured in Sunday's 34-23 victory over Green Bay.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - There's just not a whole lot of history between Georgia and Mississippi State, who share a league and a nickname but little else. Despite being alleged rivals in the Southeastern Conference, these teams have met only 23 times over the years. When they face off Saturday night in Athens, it will be the first time they've played with both ranked in the Top 25.
