Kolton Houston Update: Offensive Lineman's Future Still In The Air

Kolton Houston still has no idea on whether or not the NCAA will clear him to play and allow him to compete with his Georgia Bulldogs teammates on the football field this fall.

After suffering a shoulder injury in high school, Houston was given something to help him heal. But what he received contained Norandrolone, a banned substance by the NCAA. in April of 2010, the 6-foot-5, 280 pound offensive lineman tested positive for the banned substance and has tested positive for it over the last two seasons.

Georgia has appealed to the NCAA to try and have the ruling overturned.

In the meantime, Houston can still practice with the team and head coach Mark Richt is trying to keep him ready just in case, according to an Atlanta Journal-Constituion report:

"We're still trying to rep him enough to keep him as ready as we can without taking reps from guys we know are eligible to play," Richt said. "So it's kind of a touchy deal. But he's getting some good work. ... He can practice, so we're trying to keep him fresh and get him as game-ready as we can."
