Scott-Wesley, a junior from Camilla, was arrested for misdemeanor possession of marijuana in his dorm room last October. At the time, he was recovering from an ACL tear suffered against Tennessee. Scott-Wesley’s arrest counted as a violation of UGA’s marijuana-use policy. But it was not known at the time if it was a first or second infraction for Scott-Wesley. A first violation brings calls for a suspension of 10 percent of competition dates, or one game in football. A second calls for a 33 percent suspension, or four games. A third means dismissal.
Of course, it’s Mitchell, the junior flanker, who the Bulldogs miss most. Mitchell re-injured his surgically-repaired right knee four days before preseason camp opened and had arthroscopic surgery on July 30. Expected to be back by now, Mitchell did his first running on the practice field in weeks on Monday but has yet to run even a half-speed pass route.
