Two Georgia players suspended for first half of game against Florida
The SEC has announced that Georgia sophomore DL Kwame Geathers and junior DB Shawn Williams have been suspended for the first half of the Oct. 29 game against Florida in Jacksonville.
The two received suspensions for NCAA violations that occurred during the Oct. 15 Georgia at Vanderbilt game. Vanderbilt sophomore C Logan Stewart has also been suspended for the first half of Saturday's game against Army for NCAA violations that occurred during the Georgia game.
Geathers was suspended for fighting, and because it happened in the second half, by NCAA rules he must serve his suspension for the first half of the team's next game.
Stewart’s suspension is the result of a flagrant personal foul which occurred at the 13:09 mark in the fourth quarter in which he was ejected from the game per NCAA rules.
Williams’ suspension is the result of a flagrant personal foul for hitting a defenseless opponent, which occurred at the 2:08 mark in the third quarter. The SEC determined Williams should be suspended, the league office said in a statement.
