“We are limited in what we can say, but the report is disappointing and is not reflective of our standards,” the school said. “In addition to university disciplinary processes, we will address the incident internally according to Athletic Association policies.”
Bullard has been an important and productive member of Georgia’s nationally renowned defense. He has started all four games this season at the “star,” or nickel back, position in the defensive secondary. Bullard had three tackles in the Bulldogs’ 39-22 win over Kent State at Sanford Stadium on Saturday afternoon. For the season, he has seven tackles and one pass breakup.
Georgia already lost another frontline player at that position earlier this season in sixth-year senior William Poole. That leaves junior Tykee Smith and freshmen Marcus Washington and Darris Smith to step up if Bullard is sidelined in the coming weeks.
Georgia (4-0, 1-0 SEC) plays at Missouri on Saturday (7:30 p.m., SECN) in Columbia. The Tigers (2-2, 0-1) lost at home to Auburn 17-14 in overtime this weekend.
No other information was immediately available on Bullard’s arrest.
