(Photo by Rob Foldy/Getty Images)Georgia and Notre Dame has been an absolute slugfest so far. The two sides are tied at 7 in Athens, with a few minutes until halftime. Unfortunately, Georgia may be without a key offensive lineman, in star guard Solomon Kindley.On Georgia’s touchdown drive, Kindley went down at the end of one play, and had to be helped off the field. He’s being evaluated now.Georgia wound up capping off its 13-play, 75-yard drive with a three-yard run by D’Andre Swift to tie the game. The Dawgs ate up over eight minutes of the second quarter in the process.It may have cost Kirby Smart’s team one of its best offensive linemen, though.

Kindley has been excellent all season. Top OG in the SEC.— Cole Cubelic (@colecubelic) September 22, 2019Per The Athletic’s Seth Emerson, he was eventually carted off to the locker room. It isn’t a great sign for his prospects to return to this game.Solomon Kindley is one of the top players on the entire Georgia roster. During the preseason, he was named to Sports Illustrated‘s All-American second team, as well as the All-SEC second team by the conference media.As a redshirt freshman in 2017, Kindley was a Freshman All-SEC player after making 15 starts for the Dawgs. He was a starter once again in all 14 of the team’s games last fall.Hopefully he’ll make his way back onto the field soon. You hate to see games like this one marred by major injuries.last_img read more

Afghanistan UN agencies rushing relief to victims hit by natural disasters

The disasters have also damaged thousands of homes and killed hundreds of livestock, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). At least 15 people lost their lives and over a dozen of others were injured by floods in Herat, Badakhshan, Parwan, Faryab and Takhar provinces. More than 2,000 families were affected by the floods in Herat, while about 800 families were hit in Badghis province and hundreds more in several other provinces. The Afghanistan National Disasters Management Authority (ANDMA), along with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the UN World Food Programme (WFP), the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the local Red Cross are distributing relief supplies including tents, food and family kits, while the UN World Health Organization (WHO) is delivering medical supplies.Assessments are ongoing but the most urgent needs, said OCHA, are food, drinking water, shelter and health care. A major concern is the depletion of relief stocks across the country, and the Government has called for pre-positioning of relief items in expectation of more flooding in the near future.Aid agencies are also concerned that more rainfall and rapidly melting snow will exacerbate the situation, OCHA stated. 30 April 2009United Nations agencies and their partners are assisting the Government of Afghanistan in responding to flash floods, landslides and earthquakes which have struck various parts of the country in recent days, killing at least 15 people and leaving thousands homeless. read more
