Georgia safety Bacarri Rambo and linebacker Alec Ogletree have reportedly been suspended at least two games due to a violation of team rules, continuing what has been a troubled offseason for the Bulldogs' defense.
Georgia Bulldogs safety Bacarri Rambo and linebacker Alec Ogletree have been suspended multiple games for a violation of team rules, according to a report from DawgPost.com. Several sources said that the two defenders would miss at least two games and possibly up to four. What the violation was remains unclear at this point.
This has been rough offseason for the Bulldogs' defense. Cornerback Sanders Commings was suspended after being arrested on a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence and simple battery in January. The Dawgs' other starting corner, Branden Smith, was arrested earlier this month for possession of marijuana.
Rambo, a rising senior, will miss his second straight season-opener. He served a one-game suspension during Georgia's game with the Boise St. Broncos last year due to another violation of team rules. He earned All-American honors from the Associated Press after recording 55 tackles and eight interceptions in 13 starts.
Ogletree will be a junior this season. He broke his foot against the Broncos in the season opener, but returned in late October to start eight games and pick up 52 tackles (7.5 for loss) and three forced fumbles.
