ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia receiver A.J. Green has been
suspended for four games for selling a jersey to someone the NCAA
says qualifies as an agent.
Green sold his Independence Bowl game jersey for $1,000. The
junior, who sat out the season opener against Louisiana-Lafayette,
must miss three more games before eligible to play.
The NCAA student-athlete reinstatement staff announced the
ruling on Wednesday.
Georgia says Green has repaid the $1,000 to a charity.
Green has issued an apology to Georgia coaches, his teammates
and fans in a statement released by the school.
Coach Mark Richt says he is disappointed with the ruling. No. 22
Georgia plays at No. 24 South Carolina on Saturday.
