ATHENS - Two University of Georgia football players will incur suspensions due to violation of team rules, according to an announcement Saturday by Bulldogs' 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.
"I'm very disappointed in the poor judgement of these players," Richt said. "They'll have to pay an appropriate price and I'm confident they will learn an importnant less from their mistake.
