Georgia redshirt sophomore tailback Dontavius Jackson and redshirt sophomore split end Tavarres King have been suspended indefinitely from all team activities by UGA head coach Mark Richt following their arrest early Saturday on alcohol-related charges.

In addition, Jackson will serve a minimum six-game suspension while King has been handed a minimum one-game suspension. Information is still being gathered which could lead to additional penalties according to Richt.

“I’m disappointed in their decision-making and lack of judgment and they will both pay a stiff price,” said Richt. “All our players need to understand that it’s a privilege to be a Bulldog and their conduct needs to reflect the standards we expect.”
