A.J. Green: No New Information On Dawgs Receiver's Saturday Playing Status

Will Georgia receiver A.J. Green play Saturday? Especially since other subjects of NCAA investigations like North Carolina’s Marvin Austin and South Carolina’s Weslye Saunders are being held out of their opening day games?

Mark Richt still isn’t saying. Mark Bradley wonders what the hold-up is.

Green’s case is clearly different from those of Austin and Saunders, as nobody appears to think Green is guilty of anything. Green denied ever taking his talents to South Beach, before or during what you hope was the best party ever, and nobody ever publicly doubted him.

It would be a shame for Green to miss his team’s opening game because the NCAA is dragging its feet. If Green isn’t cleared by Saturday, Richt might be unwise to play him. If the ruling body, in its infinite capricious fancy, ever decided Green was actually guilty of something this past summer, Georgia could wind up docked a win. Playing it safe is the only option here, which is sad for Green and his fans.
