ESPN.com is reporting that Georgia running back Washaun Ealey has been suspended indefinitely from the team. The suspension bars Ealey from working out at the team facility or participating in any team functions. The Atlanta Journal Constitution in a short update says that the suspension is reportedly a result of Ealey failing to show up for a "punishment run" last week. Thus far the University of Georgia has not released a statement.
The suspension comes on the heels of Georgia's signing of the Nation's No. 1 running back in Carver Columbus native Isaiah Crowell. When talking about Crowell, Mark Richt hinted that there was a strong possibility that the freshman could take the opening hand off next season against Boise State in the Georgia Dome. Perhaps this incident further explains that statement.
Ealey, a junior, rushed for 811 yards with 11 touchdowns. He missed the season opener after being suspended due to having been arrested for leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a suspended license. Ealey was just part of Georgia's backfield discipline problems as second leading rusher Caleb King was suspended twice last season in off the field incidents and was academically unavailable for Georgia's bowl loss to Central Florida.
