Sports Minute: Here is the latest Georgia sports news from The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) - John Hart has left the Atlanta Braves, less than a week after being stripped of his role as president of baseball operations. The decision announced Friday was not unexpected given the hiring of general manager Alex Anthopoulos, who now has autonomy over all baseball-related decisions.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - No. 7 Georgia's path to the College Football Playoff has no more room for error after a crushing loss to Auburn. Down but not out, the Bulldogs know another defeat against the resurgent Kentucky Wildcats would surely be a knockout blow to their hopes of competing for a national championship.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Julio Jones keeps showing up on the Atlanta Falcons' weekly injury report and he keeps on playing. The two-time All-Pro receiver missed Thursday's practice with a sore ankle and was limited Friday. That's been a steady pattern this season as coach Dan Quinn lets Jones manage his body and decide when it's time to go full speed.

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) - PGA Tour rookie Austin Cook sank a 6-foot birdie putt on his final hole for an 8-under 62 and a one-shot lead going into the weekend at RSM Classic. Cook has gone 36 holes without making a bogey on the Plantation Course or the Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club.
