Georgia's A.J. Green suspended for 4 games

  •  

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.
