Georgia Wide Receiver A.J. Green Reportedly To Be Cleared Soon

Georgia had a successful season opener last Saturday, as the Bulldogs dispatched Louisiana-Lafayette. Now, before their SEC opener against South Carolina, it seems the Bulldogs will get their best player back.

A.J. Green, who missed Georgia's opener because of eligibility concerns, will reportedly be cleared to play in Saturday's SEC East clash, according to Chuck Oliver.

Oliver's report hasn't been borne out yet, and Georgia officials haven't heard from the NCAA, but all indications are that Green's eligibility is being questioned not because of any involvement in the South Beach party hosted by Frank Gore that has landed a handful of top college players in hot water with the NCAA. Instead, Green's issue deals with the sale of a game jersey (for $1,000).

Green would be a boost to a Georgia team that only threw for 193 yards against Louisiana-Lafayette. He caught six passes for 83 yards and a touchdown against South Carolina in 2009.
