Georgia Vs. Florida: Kwame Geathers, Shawn Williams Suspended For First Half

As expected, Georgia Bulldogs nose tackle Kwame Geathers has been suspended for the first half of the team's next game, which is a reasonably important one. Safety Shawn Williams has also been ruled out of the first half against the Florida Gators. Both players were dinged for combative behavior that occurred during a testy game in Nashville against the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Both players are starters. Geathers has seven tackles, while Williams is third on the team in tackles and has added a pair of picks and tackles for loss.

Details on each suspension from the SEC's statement (and here's video of the Geathers play):

Upon review of game tapes of the football game between the University of Georgia and Vanderbilt University, played in Nashville, Tenn. on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2011, Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive has announced that Vanderbilt sophomore center Logan Stewart, Georgia sophomore defensive lineman Kwame Geathers and Georgia junior defensive back Shawn Williams have been suspended for the first half of their team's next football games...

Geathers' action was in violation of NCAA Football Rule 2-32-1-a for fighting. By NCAA Football Rule 9-5-1-b, the penalty for violation of the rule in the second half includes suspension for the first half of the team's next scheduled game....

Williams' suspension is the result of a flagrant personal foul which occurred at the 2:08 mark in the third quarter. The action is in violation of Rule 9-1-4 of the NCAA Football Rule Book, which reads, "No player shall target and initiate contact to the head or neck area of a defenseless opponent with the helmet, forearm, elbow or shoulder."

Georgia Vs. Florida: Alec Ogletree Expected To Return From Foot Injury

Todd Grantham's Georgia defense is expected to receive a boost for the Florida game with the return of inside linebacker Alec Ogletree from a broken foot. Ogletree was injured way back in the season opening loss to Boise State. Athens Banner-Herald writer Marc Weiszer notes that Mark Richt revealed on a radio show that Ogletree would be 100 percent for Tuesday's practice.  

Mark Richt said on radio show ILB Alec Ogletree will be "100 percent go" when team practices Tuesday. He's been out with foot injury.

Ogletree was expected to be one of the most talented defenders for the Bulldogs coming into the season. He made the switch from safety to inside linebacker during the off season. Ogletree recorded one tackle before being injured in the first half against the Broncos. Michael Gilliard got the start in Ogletree's spot against Vanderbilt.
