Two Georgia Players Suspended For Violation Of Team Rules
ATHENS, Ga. --- Two University of Georgia football players will incur suspensions due to violation of team rules, according to an announcement Saturday by Bulldog head coach Mark Richt.
Junior tight end Bruce Figgins has received a six-game suspension and redshirt sophomore defensive end Justin Houston has been suspended for two games. A third player, junior wide receiver Tony Wilson, also violated team rules; however, he is in the process of being medically disqualified from competition due to slow recovery from a severe ankle injury originally suffered in the spring of 2008.
“Im very disappointed in the poor judgment of these players,” said UGA head coach Mark Richt. “Theyll have to pay an appropriate price and Im confident they will learn an important lesson from their mistake.”
