ATHENS — Georgia football linebackers Brenton Cox and Robert Beal looked to be participants in the Bulldogs’ second spring scrimmage on Saturday afternoon.
Cox and Beal, arrested on April 2 in misdemeanor charges of possession of marijuana, were running steps at Sanford Stadium last Saturday at the team’s first scrimmage.
Coach Kirby Smart had said he was’t sure when the pair would return, and that it would depend on how they handled an internal discipline plan. Smart did not say what the discipline was, and he has not met with the media since last Saturday.
Media were allowed to watch approximately 11 minutes of practice on Saturday, but several donors appeared to be on hand to watch the scrimmage and were provided with sideline access.

Practice was opened up for the Oregon coaching staff earlier this spring, and last spring Smart allowed Coach Tom Herman and the Texas staff to observe the Bulldogs’ practice.
Incoming junior college linebacker Jermaine Johnson appeared primed for the scrimmage, overcoming an ankle injury well enough to play at full speed.
Linebackers Trezman Marshall (shoulder) and Rian Davis (knee) are limited, and safety Otis Reese didn’t appear to be a scrimmage participant.
Walter Grant, who started last season at outside linebacker, continues to work with the running backs.
