ATHENS — Georgia defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter was not on the field for the media viewing period of Monday’s opening practice, and that shouldn’t be much of a surprise.
Head coach Kirby Smart said last week that Ledbetter was “not doing anything with the team right now,” and that carried over from offseason workouts to the first day of practice.
Since a DUI arrest in early July, Ledbetter’s second alcohol-related arrest since March, the player has been undergoing treatment.
Ledbetter is due to be suspended at least two games, per UGA’s policy for DUI offenses. It could be longer, but Smart has not specified that yet.
