Green's appeal of suspension to be heard Friday

By  | 

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - An NCAA committee will hear an appeal by
Georgia receiver A.J. Green to reduce his four-game suspension on

School spokesman Claude Felton says the appeal will be heard
over a conference call, opening the possibility that Green could
return Saturday when Georgia (1-1) faces No. 12 Arkansas in a
crucial Southeastern Conference game.

Green already has missed the Bulldogs' first two games for
selling an Independence Bowl jersey for $1,000 to someone deemed an
agent by the NCAA. Georgia easily won its opener, 55-7 over
Louisiana-Lafayette, but dropped its first SEC game at South
Carolina, 17-6.
