Josh Harvey-Clemons will reportedly miss the first three games of the 2014 season as a result of the same team rules violation that kept him out of Georgia's Gator Bowl loss to Nebraska.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Harvey-Clemons is serving a four game suspension for violating the school's drug-use policy for the second time.

Since then, however, several persons familiar with the situation have told the AJC that Harvey-Clemons had in fact violated UGA's marijuana-use policy for a second time and therefore had been issued a four-game suspension, as per the athletic association's student-athlete disciplinary guidelines. Those guidelines call for the offending student-athlete to be suspended for “not less than 30 percent of the season” for a second offense of the marijuana-use policy. In football, that comes to four games, one of which Harvey-Clemons has already served.
Harvey-Clemons, a starting safety and key piece of the Bulldogs' defense, was suspended for the 2013 season opener against Clemson because of a drug-related incident in the offseason. He finished the regular season third on the team in tackles (66) with 5.5 tackles for loss, one interception and three recovered fumbles.
If Harvey-Clemons is suspended for the first three games of 2014, he will miss the season opener against Clemson (again) in Athens, a home game against Troy and the SEC opener at South Carolina on Sept. 13.
