ATHENS - Georgia’s attrition in the secondary is continuing even in-season.
Junior Sheldon Dawson
is no longer on the team, coach Mark Richt
said in a brief meeting with reporters Monday evening but did not take questions on whether Dawson was dismissed or left on his own.
Dawson has played in only two games this season and did not travel with the team to South Carolina.
He was suspended for Georgia’s Gator Bowl game last season for an undisclosed reason, along with safety Josh-Harvey Clemons, who was dismissed from the team this winter.
Dawson did not start but played safety against Tennessee Saturday. The Memphis native has three tackles this season—all against the Volunteers - and had 28 in his Georgia career.
He played in 27 games and made one start without an interception.
The Bulldogs secondary also lost safety Tray Matthews (dismissal) and cornerback Shaq Wiggins (transfer) this spring.
